Playing Catch-Up...

I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas that I have let the blogging world go for a while.  Now... I must play catch-up.

I have received a few awards:


I received this award a few weeks ago on my cousins blog!! Thank you for the honor.

Now the rules...only 5 people for the award. 4 of them need to be dedicated followers of your blog and the 5th one has to be new and live in another state or part of the country. You have to link back to who gave you the award.

My cousin Elise gave me the award, but she is private so I will not bother with linking to hers. 

Here are some of my blogging friends forever:

Christal Forred:  One of my dear Kansas friends. I am so thankful you started a blog so I can keep in touch with you.

Stephanie Austin:  This is one of my dearest friends from my Utah days.  I sure miss her.  We were scrapbook buddies, and that helped us become life long friends.

And the award for newest out of state blogger goes too:

I am a big fan of your blog. One question... how did you get it to fill the whole page? Well, two questions... do you make your posts in Word and then copy them to your blog? How do you get such a range in fonts? Well, guess that's 3 questions! :)
