Is it Christmas yet?

How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was great! It was filled with cotton fields, family, food, and Santa. What more could you ask for out of a holiday? Lila loved her first encounter with Santa. He was a crafty one though. I'm not entirely sure she ever saw his face which may have been why she remained so cozy on his lap instead of having extreme stranger danger like she has had with others recently. At any rate, good times were had by all. Now back to work/reality.

Next, I want to welcome Lila's newest best friend (other than Sara, her aunt) Carson Danielle Bean! We are so excited about the birth of our little neighbor/friend we can't even stand it. Keep your eyes peeled for pictures of our giant baby next to their tiny peanut coming soon. Happy birthday Carson! We can't wait to meet you.

My venture into mommy blogging has not gone well. I am not so pleased with the venue I have chosen to start this blog. The picture/video aspect is perfect but the "blogging" part is not what I want. I will be hashing this out and trying to figure out what I want to do and how I want to do it. It may take me a little bit due to my latest ventures below, but it will happen. I promise.

I have decided to seek out writing opportunities basically wherever I can find them. Writing is something that I just really love to do. Hence the very late hour in which I am doing it right now. In an attempt to find a better home for my small dog Woody (any takers?) I was snooping around on craigslist and came upon a writing section where I then stumbled upon This site is great! If you love to travel this is the place for you. At any rate, you can go in and write a short piece about a "trip" you have been on. In the process of doing this I stumbled upon a contest that my piece fit right into! This is where you come in. If you love me and you want to support my silly little venture, please go to the link below between the dates of December 7th and December 23rd (yes, I will remind you on this blog) and click on "add to wishlist". Well, read my piece first if you have time. You may have to make an account. I'm not sure. But supporting me is worth it right? I think if you are on Facebook you can automatically sign in using your Facebook info. Give that a try. Either way, THANKS. If you do this and I become a famous writer someday I will acknowledge you somewhere. I promise.
