this is cool

So I've been messing around with Photomatrix Pro ( and it is a cool program! Here's an example taken from my back porch. The temp outside has dropped dramatically in the last 12 hours and its FREEZING out there so I didn't venture far from the door. anyhow- here it is. Wishing you all a wonderful new year and lets hope 2009 is better than 2008, it's been a rocky year.

and grandma prefers the unedited underexposed picture. It's the first picture-untouched.

Congratulations Mr. President

I hadn't planned on staying up and watching, but we did. This country was in desperate need for a change, you can look around at what the same ol same ol has led us to. I'm glad it's decided now, I was getting tired of hearing the negativity from both sides at all levels. Can't we all just get along? When it's all said and done, I'm grateful that we live in a country where everyones voice can be heard.

She's an artist!

I just love that little girl ~ she's so darn cute. I had her parent teacher conference today and she's doing very well, the only issue is, she is *talkative*. Now for the life of me I can't imagine where she got that from? strange...

Crystal light mmmmm

Random things about me:

- I spend way to much time reading other peeps blogs

- I *heart* crystal light lemonade

- I am very disorganized and messy

- I am often very critical of myself {and shhh prolly others!} it's an awful habit

- I am blessed beyond words.

- love fills my heart... [ how sappy]

Grandma's hair is crazy lately

Sometimes I just have to laugh at her, I know... I know... I shouldn't but gosh darn it- look at her hair! She is just fed up with it I think and I am at a loss as to what to recommend. Mine isn't much better ;) As they say, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

Yay, we're almost there!

My g'ma, Meg and I took a long ass drive to Ohio to see Tawnya and the kids, it was beautiful out since the trees are changing and as always, it was great to see the Sutton gang. I miss her being close by! But now we know the way so we'll go again soon~ But not until my damn ankle heals, it's been killing me. and for sure longer than a day next time :)
