February

Well, here it is already February and I haven’t done any posting. Sad smile Sometimes I debate whether I should even have a blog. Maybe with G+ and Facebook, I don’t need a blog to keep people updated. And I hardly ever email any more. It doesn’t help that I still haven’t recovered my gmail account. Sad smile I guess I need to set up a new one. For now I am using my Martin Photography account.

A big change in January was the passing of my Grandma Martin. We miss her, but are happy that she is now cancer free and living with Jesus. Her life is definitely an inspiration and challenge for me! So a week after being back in Colorado after Christmas break, I headed back to to VA for the funeral. It was fun to see my cousins that I haven’t seen for a long time.

Now I feel like I can catch up on some stuff here, but somehow I always have more than enough projects to do. Now you now why I don’t get around to posting. Between school stuff, sewing, family, youth, and exercising, there just doesn’t seem to be time to fit everything in.

Something exciting to look forward to is that 2 of my cousins are getting married this spring. Derek and his fiancée Angela are getting married May 20 and then Connie and her fiancé Lyle are getting married June 11. I’m especially excited because I get to be Connie’s maid of honor! Smile And Connie, Kendra, Beth, and I will all be together before the wedding!

So here are a few random photos to make the post a bit more interesting: my winter bulletin board, our house and the chicken barn in the snow, my class on wacky day, and a random babysitting pic.

And, if you think I should keep blogging, comment and let me know! Thanks!

Babysitting and life

Well, after Janine’s wedding Nellie came back to Colorado with me. During the week she was here, we (Jen, Nell, and I ) stayed with the Troyer children while their parents where gone. We really enjoyed ourselves. Nellie and I had a great time cooking and Jen did sewing. Here are a few pictures of the Troyer’s house. Nellie and I had the master bedroom and felt like we were living in luxury. Smile  I wish I would have taken one of the outside and also that my one of the bedroom had the bed made, but I was flying around last minute packing up things before school, and didn’t stop to make the bed before taking the picture.
