It is so great to be back to the world of blog! I have missed everyone so much. I have tried to sneak in a minute or two online at work to read some of ya'lls posts. I will be around tonight to catch up on everyone. Due to some minor financial setbacks out Internet and cable has been cut off for a while. So what do you do with a house full of kids and no cable or computer? Well, we popped some old school popcorn. It tells you not to pop this on a glass top stove but we did anyway. We had no mishaps :)We played some old school games too. This one is called "Rich Farmer, Poor Farmer". It is kind of like monopoly.We started putting together a puzzle. It is the history of chocolate. Yum!Some of the kids were kinda like - ugh- a puzzle? But you see they all got in on the fun, even Wes. We have had a great time but it is good to back online and with school starting the kids need the Internet. Funny thing is- Charter gave me a cheaper price since I am a "new" customer now. Strange. I was also so excited to receive this wonderful package from Sharon
I entered a drawing over at her blog to win a CD that her son and his fiance made. I was so pleased to have won. Sharon wrapped everything up in this pretty paper. Inside was the CD (I did not get a picture of it because my camera was broken on the way back from the beach) Also inside was....

these adorable little vintage card games. Sharon knows that I collect old board games. How sweet of her to send them to me. Also inside was....

this darling little book called Food For Thought. It has great little inspirational words and sayings. I keep it in my purse. Thank you Sharon! You are such a great blogger friend!!

I have so much more to blog about. Our company paid for a wonderful trip to the beach for us and I will post about it tomorrow. I also have an anniversary coming up! The big 10! Wow! Mom says she did not know that 10 was a big one. LOL! Well, it is to me.
I am so happy to be back and am headed off to visit all of you.

What a cute family you have! I love all your "old school" things that you did! It is nice to have cable and internet though isn't it! I'm so glad you got the package. Let me know what you think of the CD!

God bless you!
