It's about time!

Well I guess there's no easy fix for someone who just doesn't journal very often. My sister-in-law sent me a link to her blog which made me think I should write again in my own. Alex and I have been swamped in real estate lately. The market may be "down" but our business is starting to really take off. It's pretty exciting, but I'm also frantically trying to get some systems in place so we don't start dropping the ball and drowning in our business.

Mexico was a blast! I'll post a few pics. Alex has been back to Maryland for family matters and M got to go with him this time. My garden did really well, and I've got plans for next year. Halloween came and went. M was a witch for the ward party and a pumpkin for trick or treating (it was warmer) this year, and had a lot of fun learning all about the holiday. She still runs around sometimes saying "Happy Ween!" and "Tick er Tweet!" She's growing up so fast!

Welcome to our Blog!!!

Well, here we are. I guess I've never thought of myself as a blogger; however, I'm beginning to think it might be a good way to keep in touch with family and friends, share pics, and journal all at once. (Three things at which I've been notoriously bad in the past.) It may just bore you to tears, but then again, you don't have to visit if you don't want to.

This first post is really just to get things started. You'll have to tune in later for the family update to come. We just returned home from a family reunion, and we're on our way to visit Lynda, Alex's Mom, in Mexico this week. So I should have plenty to write about.

(So how do you end these things anyway? "Sincerely?" "The End?" "Catch you later?' Do I sign my name? Or do I just stop writing and leave us all wondering if I was actually done or not?)

FYI: A big thank you to my former mission companion, Jana Norman, for sending me her blog and starting me thinking about this in the first place.
