Time Flies doesn't it?

How did your Christmas go? We had snow, snow ...

and more snow!

We tried to keep it simple, we all headed down south to the canyon and had a Cabin Christmas! Paper chains, popcorn and paper snowflakes on the tree. We didn't go overboard on the gifts, just spent time together - it was a nice change of pace.

The kids LOVED being able to walk right out the door and sled down the hill, taking hot cocoa breaks as needed. I think we've started a new tradition. We even had Sm'ores around the campfire on Christmas night.
I think I managed to get some great snapshots that I'll get to scrapping - ya think?
Okay, so it has been LONG time no Blog - What else is new?

What HAVE I been doing? Well, besides the Holidays, going back to work and submitting my picture book to an agent!?

Yep, I did it. Now I just wish I could reach into the mail and pull it back. It's so hard to let it go out into the big wide world. What if it gets lost in the slush pile, what if he doesn't like it? I can't possibly think I'll get published can I? What was I thinking??!!
So how many of you are into goal setting and the whole New Year Resolutions thing?
I have to admit that I'm not big on the whole it's-January-set-your-goals kind of girl. On the other hand I do set goals, write them down (I swear there is some kind of magic that happens when you WRITE your goals, before you know it, it seeems that they happen) and work on obtaining them. Just not in January. It's like going to the gym in January, it's freakin' crowded in there! I prefer to achieve my goals alone, quietly and most of all, not because of peer pressure.
Well, I have a LOT of catching up to do, check out all your blogs - I can't wait to see what you all are up to for "oh-9"!
