Bad Blogger

Has it really been so long since I have blogged?  I am having a hard time blogging on here.  Don't know why that is.....  Just busy I guess.

I have started a blog for my book challenge reading, so you can check that one here:

Let's see - It has been a busy time:

We had our first real snow storm of the year.  And hopefully the last

Mat turned 42.  His parents came up to our house for a visit and celebrate his birthday.

Arlington turned 13.  Can that be true?  Did she really turn 13?  I have a full blown teenager?  Impossible.

We went to PA to visit our families.  Mat couldn't go because he had to work, but the kids and I went.  We had a really nice time.  We celebrated Arlington's birthday, Valentines Day, and Chinese New Years all in one day - it was pretty cool.  We saw my cousin Kirsten perform in Guys and Dolls.  We went to a WVU basketball game.  We did some shopping.  It was a pretty full week.

The set of Guys and Dolls
My mother in law made all these little cakes for Valentines day

 I got to meet my newest nephew, Wolfe
 Arlington entertained her cousins
At the WVU game.  Aunt Renee got seats close to the front so Finley could see

I took a month long job as a sub as a school nurse at a local school.  Because I have lost my ever loving mind.

Mat had a chance to go to Washington DC and go to a summit with President Obama.  It was by invitation only, and he went there representing Autism Speaks.  It was very cool.  I got to watch it on TV and saw him there.  He then had a meeting with the FDA Commissioner and NIH head, and had a chance to mention Finley and our foundation.  They were very interested in the work we were doing and took his contact information so keep in touch with him.  Fingers crossed.

I think that catches you up.  I will try better to get over here and blog more!
