Who's a Blogger?

If you haven't noticed....I've uh, been...absent.  Let's just play a little catch up.  My last post was in October...let's see.  Cameron has tendonitis in his shoulder so he couldn't play basketball this year, I cried but eventually got over it.  Christian finished his first semester of college, woohoo! And then came home for a long winter break, I also had a lot of vacation time stored up so I took it all and was home for half or more of December, another woohoo!  I put together the music portion of our church's Christmas Eve service, a lot of stinkin' work but it was "quite nice".  I went to prison in November!  It was a blast!  I sing in the band for our church's Celebrate Recovery program on Monday nights, they asked us to do a couple concerts at Algoa Correctional Center in Jefferson City.  It was a really neat experience, very humbling.  Our keyboard player couldn't go so I got the privilege to play keys and sing, another fun experience for everyone, lol.  My mom, sister, and niece, Amber, came over on Christmas Eve and we played games and watched a home movie "Christmas - 2000"; my boys were 4 and 6, my niece, Amber was 7; they were so adorable.  My mom got the boys Twister for Christmas that year and we all played, yes, we played twister - grown ups with 4, 6, and 7 year olds, lol. We laughed our heads off. 

We also watched some other home movies and Cameron recorded one on his phone.
Let's set the scene...Cameron is 3 years old, Christian is 5 years old.  We just came from a family reunion where Christian got stung by a bee on his thumb.

On a somber note, our dog Rylee became ill and we had to have her put to sleep a few days after Christmas.  It was a lot harder on all of us than I thought it would be, I cried at least once or twice a day for the first several days.  It just isn't the same around the house without her.  But life goes on...God is good and I have so much to be thankful for, He has grown me in remarkable ways the past few months.  He is worthy to be praised!

Christmas Card 2013

I almost forgot!  The annual Hoagland Christmas Card!  This year was tough, we had some really good...or, er...strange ideas but they just didn't pan out or we couldn't get it together in time.  This is our "last minute" award winning (in our eyes) Christmas Card photo.

Look closely....the boys have antlers...
