Jumping right back in!

Wowzers! It has been a very long time since I blogged. I am not even sure where to start!?!?!? I think almost all of my readers are family and close friends so there probably isn't really much I need to catch anyone up on but here it goes....

Motherhood has drastically changed for me since I last blogged. Two out of my five children are now adults!! *Gasp* I am still having difficulty coming to terms with it. I certainly don't feel like I am old enough to have not one but TWO adult children. I also do not feel like they were kids for very long. Looking back on the pictures I have posted here makes me long for those days again.  What has surprised me the most is that parenting is always challenging. I guess I always thought that at a certain age they would be so independent that they wouldn't need me any more. That has not been the case. In fact in someways they need me more. I am back to not sleeping all night through as I wait for them to let me know they have arrived home safely. They are quickly figuring out that being an adult is not as fun as they imagined.

Meet my newest baby!
Her name is Layla. She is spoiled rotten. No doubt she will be featured on this blog regularly. I just may be guilty of photographing her more often than my human babies. In my defense my human babies don't appreciate me snapping a bunch of photos. Plus she is the only one who snuggles me like this anymore.

My husband retired from the Air Force! First thing he did was grow a full mustache and beard and stop cutting his hair. You would't even recognize him anymore. He is pretty shaggy now but I LOVE it!

#4 We no longer live in beautiful Alaska. While I miss the beauty it is nice to be in the lower 48. I am able to travel to see friends and family easier. Prices are also better although housing is not (at least not in my area).

I think that is about it for catching anyone up.
