Life the past month...

I have neglected my blog for the past month! We now do not have internet so my posts will be few and far between. Here is what we've been up to:
  • Double wedding (so much fun!!)
  • Several Christmas parties
  • Christmas (immediate family, extended family, a week's worth of celebrating!)
  • Painting and working on our new home ( a project that's never going to end.)
  • Moving and unpacking
  • Keeping Emma out of trouble (she's become a "crumb inspector")
  • Preparing to leave for my work trip to the Bahamas
  • Trying to keep up with day to day life and maybe get some sleep!!
