Still Alive

Alright, I know I seem to have fallen off the face of the earth lately. We have been SOOOO extremely busy and it seems like the more I get behind posting harder it seems to get caught up. So in an attempt to not cry over the sad state of my blog I am going to post this meme that several of my friends have posted. Then I will have something new and pretty up and I will feel inspired to post something else soon (like our family holiday letter).
