My favorite note from the teacher

Have I mentioned I hate packing a lunch? Miss C is such a picky eater iv only been able to send "cold" food in her lunch box. One of her teachers was sweet enough to bring lunch for her while we were moving this week.
Anyone have any great lunch box meals?

Home Sweet Home

It's been quite around this little blog lately. You see I'm a wee bit superstitious and like to keep quite about some things till they are official.
Well it's official, we bought a house! We closed last Friday and the moving truck arrives tomorrow morning! It feels like I just went thru this! Well I did just 7 short months ago. We have really enjoyed living downtown and met some special friends that we will be in our lives even after we move.
I found my dream house and Mr T was sweet enough to agree to commute again to let me buy it.
Our fist home was 1,400 sq feet in Bryker woods then we built the Steiner Ranch house at 1,800 sq feet now the new house is just under 4,000 sq feet! There is a whole lot of decorating in my future! Furnishing this house has been a full time job in itself, don't get me wrong I'm NOT complaining! Well more on the house later I better get to packing!

Napkin Notes

It's no secrete I have a paper fetish, napkins included. Sometimes I find they even read my mind.

Happy New year! Welcome 2012

For the Collins 2012 has a lot in store! I welcome it with open arms as I look forward to the events to come. We will embark on some serious uncharted territory, at least for us. 
This Blog will venture into its 3rd year! I'm proud that I have stuck to my commitment to document my family's story, it's so fun to go back and read all the little stories that would surly slip my mind over time. 

Here is a look at your New Years Eve party. We rang in the new year with my family and friends at Elmwood Gardens and Trey DJ'ed for the 2nd year in a row. He is actually really good SHHHH Don't tell him I admitted that! And proof that Miss C really is my daughter, she danced the night away!
