|We made a quick to trip Kentucky over the last weekend of 2012.|
We drove through a snow storm, while nerve wrecking, allowed for beautiful photography.
We spent a little time with these folks.
We had a blast, acting silly!
Due to location/army limitations, we were able to include all family members through the use of technology!
The couple living in Texas won the "Ugly Wrapping Contest"!
It was really ugly!
The trophy is on it's way!
The little ones are growing up! New family members will be added to our family this year.
We are blessed!
The new year brings resolutions, dreams and goals. I pray God blesses you in 2013!

A time for change. Our family is no longer within driving distance of each other. We made the best of the situation. Using modern technology, we were all able to be in the same room, at the same time, while in different locations.
It felt odd at first, but within a few minutes we were talking, acting silly, and being our typical "Burton" bunch selves! This is Lacey, she traveled from KY. She's a little shy, but very loveable.
We enjoyed opening gifts, playing games, talking, laughing and mostly, just being with each other.
Due to all the different schedules, we were able to celebrate Christmas over several days.
No one was left out, and we were all relaxed.
We aren't finished, we still have a little more celebrating, with other family members.
We enjoyed a joyous Christmas Eve service at church. It set the tone for remembering the true meaning of Christmas.o
For unto us a son is given, unto us a child is born!
Jesus, was the perfect gift that first Christmas morn!

I pray you had a wonderful, thankful weekend!
I spent time with very special people.
The puppies made the trip from Kentucky and seemed to enjoy their time in Tennessee.
We had good food, and an opportunity to relax around football/basketball games.
We also spent a lot of time on the phone with those that weren't able to make it home. :)
Yes, I had a bountiful Thanksgiving.
you God, for blessing me.

I didn't intend to take such a long break from this blog, but... days flew by and before I knew it, two months were gone! School is back into session, actually, almost 1/4 of the school year is almost finished. :)
In September we celebrate several birthdays and decorate for fall.
I had planned on doing a post of the changes in the dining room. It was painted back in February and I love it! The color is called "moonshine".
This beautiful young woman celebrated her birthday this week.
Red Velvet cake - her favorite! It tasted as good as it looked!
New cell phone was on the birthday "wish" list. Unfortunately, it is on a back order list. Hopefully, it will arrive in a few days.
There was another, "on it's way" gift. She had been looking at a monogram necklace and I found one, again, didn't arrive in time. She was good natured about it.
I personally am thrilled fall is here! I love fall, cool weather and colorful trees.
Love,July 29, 2011
