"L" IS FOR:

Hi.
My name is Lisa.
It has been a Long time since I last blogged.
And I am a Loser.

It really has been so long since I last posted, I have literally forgotten how to navigate around Blogger. Things also look very different to me. Have they changed again? I feel like there are some things missing... all of the fancy things.

Well, I do not know where to begin and am not sure if I should review the past month or do I just start with #3's birthday that was Saturday. I guess a lot of pictures are in order and the less words the better.

Since I was Last here......

We Christmased in our Lilly pjs:




We went to my dad's house and celebrated Christmas for the first time without my mom and we Laughed just like old times and it felt good:


My mom was honored at the "Lights of Life" ceremony and the tree lighting ceremony at the hospital where she worked. She was recognized with a Lifetime Light and her light will shine every year on the tree. This is a picture as we road by after the ceremony:




We arrived home Late on Christmas night just in time to see the first flakes of snow:


We went to sleep with it Looking Like this:


We woke up the next morning to this Lovely sight:


These Little guys could not get enough of the snow, but I had my fill with using the blow dryer to defrost them:




Please tell me you noticed that the snow just stuck to Lola and she became the Abominable Snowdog:





We pLayed:






Charlie Lounged around in his man cave:


But Lola had no time for such nonsense. She had some more running to do:


I took the Long journey to the end of the driveway to take some pictures of the house, but could barely see it:



There were angeLs:

There were cLowns:


And a Lot of group pictures:



Lastly, we spent New Year's at the beach and The Man of the House woke up on New Year's Day with vertigo. There is nothing you can do with a man glued to a spinning floor on a national holiday. There were no medical offices open anywhere near by and he didn't think he could make it to the nearest ER. I kept force feeding him Dramamine every hour, which at least calmed his stomach some. I just figured if he died from overdosing it surely had to feel better than feeling like he was constantly on a roller coaster. It helped just enough and we were able to get to Raleigh the next day and headed straight to the doctor's. He DID have an inner ear infection. Isn't he too old to be having ear infections? I was just relieved that he WAS sick. I knew that glass of champagne should not have had that affect on him.

We celebrated #3's birthday over the weekend and I will post those pictures Later THIS week.

Over all, Life is good, God is good and I am blessed!

Happy New Year and Happy Blogging!

With the way things have been around here, I could certainly join in on your poem...

Hey Lisa. Your house looks very familiar. Is it a William Poole Houseplan?
