Why So Long Without Posts?

It has been a long time since I have updated the blog.  I don't know.  I just haven't been feeling it.  I have been sad about somethings that have happened with my family and I guess that has put me in a funk.  I have been working on my digital scrapbooking.  Angie got me hooked on it back in September and recently I went to the spring Scrapfest and completed a lot of pages.  I decided that since I wasn't feeling like posting to the blog, I could could upload the layouts of the events I probably would have blogged about anyway.  It is like a post, but in different form and it is better than no post at all.  I don't want to let the blog go.  I just have to ride out this funk. I have uploaded layouts of events from my last post on 11/11/11 to now.  The only ones I have not completed are the ones from our trip to Disney/Universal over Mardi Gras break.  Those I am working on now.  I hope you enjoy the layouts.

Life Is Giving Us Lemons

The lemon tree is producing lemons like crazy. I amazed that there were so many on the tree. At least 100 I would say. I wish we had planted a lemon tree sooner. This is fun.
