It is 2012!

Boy, did 2011 fly by and I can't say I mind...A little time between me and the start of 2011 is a good thing...in 2011 what did I do?


















I lost my mind and then slowly got it back again.















Once I got my fruit all back in the basket I realized once again that I am stronger than I think...






















I climbed up the side of a mountain to go thru a cave even though I almost died of heat stroke then froze my butt off in the cave.
















I got to spend one night with my two little grand boys after not seeing them for over a year and I had Daniel and Olivia for part of the summer.













My new niece was born and between she and Jace I smiled about a million times.












And I made things, cause that is what I do..... Happy New Years everyone. Thanks for sharing 2011 with me fruit in the basket or not....

I am delighted you hung in there Melinda. I know how hard it has been.
How wonderful to spend time with the boys again and Danieland Olivia as well.
Oh your new niece is just so cute as is Jace feeding his baby sister.
Oh yes the creating really helps keep us on track.
Looks like a good start to 2012.
