Our Son's 21st Birthday!

     I can't believe our oldest son Colby is 21 years old! Oh my oh my, where has the time went too?
     We celebrated his Birthday by having family & friends meet us at the Ben Jack Hunting Camp. We have hunted here at the camp for years. I know since Chuckie & I met back in 1989 they've hunted here and I know they've hunted there for several years before that!  We have celebrated many Thanksgivings & Christmas's down at the good ole' camp.
     Chuckie grilled hamburgers & hotdogs for everyone. We had some good tastin' barbque beans that Granny made & boy were they yummy! Also added to the menu was some tasty coleslaw & chips. After lunch we had a marble cake from Walmart. It was good but I've tasted better. But who's complaining?
I'll let the pictures do the talking:

Colby with his finace Sarah. :)

Colby & I. He will always be my little boy! ;)

Colby & his brother Brandon.

& sweet baby!

Stacey taking time to smile!

Josh & Melissa :)

Nan had been riding Brooke and Amer around in the hunting woods. I can remember
going riding with Colby, Brandon, Josh & Mandy when they were little!! It seems just like a few years ago!

Brianna fell asleep while Nan was riding them around on the four wheeler!

We all had a wonderful afternoon celebrating Colby's 21st Birthday! :)

2011 Is Here!

I took this cute pic @ the coffee shop @ Shands. I just love the baby
elephant following behind his Mommy. I fell in love with it when I seen it!

I'm only three days late with have a "Happy New Year!" I so meant to publish a post this weekend and as you can tell it just didn't happen. That's life. At least I'm doing it now instead of never posting & wishing everyone a Happy New Year. As the saying goes, "it's better late than never." 
I do have a few New Years Resolutions I'd like to share:
*I'm going to lose weight. I'm not going to say how much because I also get fixated on a number and end up getting discouraged if I don't lose that certain "number". I have a ver good reason for losing weight(besides for health reasons): We have a wedding to look forward to at the end of this year!! Colby (our oldest son) and Sarah will be getting married on December 31, 2011 so I have to lose weight!!!!!!! :) 
*I am going to post more regular here on my blog, at least once a week but I'd love to 2-3 times a week! Just think, one post a week will be 52 posts by the end of the year. I look at this blog as a journal for me and for my family. At the end of the year I will have a journal of happenings that went on in my life!! Without this blog at the end of the year would I be able to tell you 52 separate things that went on in my life? Nope I sure wouldn't! It puts it in perspective doesn't it?
*Read my Bible on a regular basis!! There is  plenty of room for me to improve in this area. 
I do not want to over do it with a long drawn out list because it probably would not make the completed list! Sad, but true! So we'll see by me keeping my list to a top 3 if I can follow through!??

So what is your top three or four or five? See, I've just given you an idea for a post! :) :)
