Hanging In...

My blogging skills have been even beyond lacking. It's been a bit of a rough go for me lately and I am working to start bouncing back. As always, the one bright light in my life is my Savior, Jesus Christ and, coming in a very close second is my precious Benjamin. Take a look at this picture and just TRY to wonder why!

Sorry about the red eye...I used to be able to edit these but for the life of me, can not get to wherever I was that let me do that! Here are the highlights of what we have been up to...

Benjamin took his first plane ride in mid-January to visit his grandma and grandpa. It was a really nice break for us, even though the weather wasn't ideal. We left Minnesota just at the right time too. We have been enjoying a very unseasonable winter, with mild temperatures and very little snow. While we were gone we missed cold temperatures and a huge snowstorm! Here are a few pictures from the trip.

We've been back for a few weeks now and are just settling in and looking forward to spring. We took advantage of a warmer than average Saturday this past weekend and took a trip to a favorite outlet mall. Benjamin fared much better than mommy when it came to our purchases...I had no luck, but it was worth it just to see the smiles on his face! Sunday we were able to get together with Benjamin's favorite uncle for lunch.

It was a nice weekend. I hope to be back with some more pictures and updates soon!

God bless you all!


  1. Thank you for sharing your blessings!

  2. He's growing up so much! You must be doing mommyhood just right!

  3. Oh how fast that boy is growing up. He is so cute. I am so glad you got to get away for a visit. Hope spring gets here fast. I hate being cold.

  4. I'm glad to read an update on you and Benjamin. Hope things get better for you soon. *hugs*
