Very interesting..............

It's been a crazy week - busy working lots to get ready to go away with my man for a week!!  Cannot. Wait. Been. Too. Long!!!!!

For those of you who don't know - I'm adopted and for the first time ever this past week I've had contact with both my birth brothers from my birth father and they sent me a pic of my Birth Father - very surreal!!  Hoping to meet them soon!  Am sooooo excited!

Here are a couple of the pics.............This one is of my Birth Father and my two brothers.

 This one is of my Birth Father in 1990 - he passed away 10 years later.

Packing for a trip with all these new restrictions for bags, checked and carryons...........oh my!  It's almost more stressful then getting my work caught up enough to go!

I  promise to share pics of warm and sunny places..............TBA!

A German Christmas

My BFF Marla grew up in Germany.  Her precious mom passed away the beginning of December and she was feeling homesick for Germany - so we went to "A German Christmas" up in Vancouver, BC.

It was POURING down rain, but we had a blast - that's just what you do with BFF's - no matter what the circumstances right?
We bought our admission through Groupon which included a carousel ride!

Me and Captain Randy standing in front of Captain Randy's Seafood - how fitting!

A mug of hot wine and a BFF-ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Cold and wet - but smiling!

In case you are wondering -" hmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder if Janice made a Daily December album"  - I'm sure you don't have better things to wonder about :)  I am NOT - surprise, surprise.  I actually decided after 3 years of the Daily December that I am going to to a mini album and title it a "During December" album.  These will definitely be in there!

Sure - why not!

It's a beautiful sunny day and now that I'm working almost full time (and then some!) I have a list a mile long of things to do..............................but I'm finally sitting down with my latte and I thought - why not shock them all and do a random blog post?

I have such mixed feelings about this ol' blog.  It's seen me through some really fun times, some really rough times and some really boring times.  I don't want to delete - but I just don't have time to be a faithful blogger.  As I type I am comfortable and loving the feeling of posting a blog - just like the old days, and I do miss it.

So today - a couple pics and we'll call it good.
Our family - LOVE! (that's Nathan's girlfriend Miranda)

My mom - an amazing lady - especially for being 82!!

Spent New years eve at the cabin with the BFF's  - it was FREEZING loading up to go home!!

2012 was full of fun and memories. As we enter a new year, I have learned, that no matter what God brings our way it is to make us better - NOT our lives better.  He is faithful - ALWAYS - and in that I will rest.

2013 Blessings to you all - and maybe, just maybe I will blog again soon - if anyone is still out there!  I do have some awesome new recipes I've found! :)

Soooooooooooooooo - how about twice a week?!?
