Butterfly Kicks

Ryan is still going strong with his karate.  He is now working toward his 2nd degree black belt, which will take about 2 years to complete.  He loves different kicks and was showing me a new kick called the Butterfly kick....very cool....

Thanks Giving

Thanksgiving has come and gone.  The turkey, the pumpkin dessert and the making of the Christmas card.  We celebrated our Thanksgiving on Wednesday. Ham, mashed potatoes, asparagus and my pumpkin cheesecake.  Which I didn't give enough time to set but it was still tasty.  Mom and Terry joined us.  We took our family picture for the Christmas card.  After setting up the ladder to prop the camera on we started snapping pictures.

Justin and Ryan left to go to spend the holiday with their dad on Thursday morning.  Don, Nick and I headed over to Craig and Rebecca's to spend the afternoon eating turkey and watching football.  Mom and Terry joined us and Craig and Rebecca were gracious enough to allow meat in their home, we were thankful to eat turkey and not tofurkey! Unfortunately for Don Dallas didn't win but it was a heck of a game and we stayed until the bitter end.

I have been talking about starting a blog for years.  I love the idea of documenting and tracking our lives together.  Well here I am finally starting it, today November 19, 2012.  I'm not sure I am much of a blogger but here it goes....I have been a Technical Writer for a software company for over ten years.  Now that is different than creatively writing.  I got my real estate license in NC this past year and am currently working on starting my own real estate business with a partner, Elise. I love my real estate job!  I have been married to Don for 2 years and we have 3 boys.  Nick 17 years, Justin 11 years and Ryan 9 years.
