Starting the transaction of moving

Anyone that knows me would know that I am not just great at putting things out about myself. I would much rather talk about you and about what is happening in your life but I have come to a point that I have to be able to tell a LOT of people what is going on and being that I love each and every single one of you I thought this would be a way of getting the word out. I am moving to Edgewood, New Mexico!!!! I am Very excited about the move, and very sad at the same time.
I have so many people that I just love so much in the Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles and I wanted a way of letting you know whats going on. It was suggested to me that I open my blog back up and start it that way. With each step I can let you know where I am and when I will be in Perryton and when I will be in Edgewood.

Right now I just got a new roof on my house in Perryton :o) Yes I am every excited about that, I will begin painting of the trim tomorrow and tonight I am laying a new floor in the basement. That basement is going to be great! That has always been my sons bedroom. Colt needed a lot of room because he was a busy guy.....he had all of his instruments down there, a den area for watching TV, his desk area and his music area....Oh yea and a bed..... and with it being just wide open it looks HUGE lol I had someone that was looking at the house tell me that they were most interested in having it as a home theatre. I thought that was just a Very cool idea. So I am getting it all ready for someone if they want to do something like that or just have a beautiful room to excape.

I have taken about 4 trailer loads to NM so far and truthfully I bed I have 10 more to go... I had no idea I had collected so many things and as I have gone through them I can see why they are all there....yes I had every single scrap of paper that my children have ever written on since they were born, Every toy, Everything! most of their old cloths and just general stuff.....well so began the giving away process.... I think the funnest thing that has happened so far was filling up the dumpster with things that I couldn't donate, couldn't give away.....and I refuse to have a garage sale.... so I put it in the big dumpster at the back of the house.....well I was setting out in the back yard with friends drinking a glass of wine that night and we heard the worst noise ever. I opened the back gate and low and behold the fight was on! We stood and watched as people were trying to pull things out of each others hands.... I never laughed so hard in my whole life.....yep they were dumpster diving.....I thought that was a blast... I tried to get a little nicer after that and put things beside the dumpster so they wouldnt have such a hard time getting them out. I have no earthly idea how they knew the stuff was there but it just goes to show ya.... if you build it.....They will come! I love you all and will let you know how the painting of the trim goes tomorow.

This seems to be the hardest thing I have Ever done... writing in my blog, but I keep hearing from you that this is want you want.... something more personal and something that explains my day a little better. Now for me getting pictures of my family its a whole other thing....Sooooo Mr. Elton Casey (Who second shoots for me at weddings) agreed to take family pictures for me... so I thought this would be a good time to add some of these when the family finally go to get together for Christmas.

This is little Naomi. She is really special to my heart in every way, we take pictures every month, and every single month she just never ceases to amaze me. I will be sharing one of each month with you...I have several to catch up on!

This is the Very first day of the rest of my life.....and I will rejoice and be glad in it.....
Hmmm that had my capitols and no exclamation points.... but its true anyway :o)
Today I start my weight loss program..... today is the day that I start will power, self control, motivation for my body health, Today is the first day to getting all cute for Elise's Wedding in August. (My daughter) hmmm well lets see how this little program goes. lol I think this is going to be tough. right now and today I am weighing in at 250 :) and I will try and keep on of this logged and accounted for... one of the reasons that I want to log this in my blog is to keep myself accountable, to my friends and to people that will help push me..... I am not wanting to loose down to the chart recomendations for my weight that would make me look like a sack of bones but I think I do want to get down to about 200 lbs. That is a good weight on I will try and post pictures of sessions that I have taken through the years as I blog this journey. I hope to see you though this, hopefully you can give a boost and a helping hand ;o) much love to all!

My Favorite Toy When I Was a Boy!

You know as we walk through a adult life it truly is amazing at how caught up in our day to day that we become. I have always been someone that looks at today and looks at the future so much more than I ever look back, I just do not spend a lot of time reflecting in the future. My kids remind me of this from time to time and we stop and I start telling stories....This time while I was taking pictures early Monday morning I was just stopped dead in my tracks! I was on a shoot that included three of my favorite people in my whole world, one was one of my most favorite teachers that I would ever have, a teacher that did more shaping of my character than any other teacher ever did for me and she did it by suggestion not by command. I still love her with my whole heart... the other two were her completely gorgeous daughters one in my grade and the other in the grade above we use to say that they were so pretty that they could make a stone statue cry! and above all they have personalities of pure gold, such great people. I say that to say was already in a nostalgic kind of mode, we were chatting and taking pictures. This was just a great time. now the oldest of the girls just had a son that was around 2 years old or less and was just so fun to be around that he really made the whole shoot fun, but I wanted to share a picture of him that I took that just totally made me stop in my tracks and think! When I was little my dad was a Fireman, and the very first Full Time Fireman that Perryton ever had. Than means that me and Mom took Dad supper every night and that meant that I had the free run of the firehouse!!!! and let me tell you that was a BLAST!!! lol I knew all the policemen, the dispatchers and other firemen and I LOVED suppertime at the firehouse!.... Perryton in those days didn't have a museum to hold all the cool old artifacts of the towns history so they were just where ever they lived in those days.....well the fire station had two. I played on those two old firetrucks like nobodies business, I would set up on that that old truck and ring the old bell with my dads hat on and just make up stories of rushing to the fire to put it out. I literally would spend hours up there just being a fireman.....And that was a great part of my childhood. :o) It still makes me smile just thinking about it and how much fun it was!!! Now we are at the museum taking these family pictures because this family has a beautiful history of this area and were of the very first families to settle this part of the country and we took pictures of their families artifacts in the background of the family pictures, they wanted to keep it casual and not formal and just playful. I wanted to get some pictures of the little guy just taking in the things at the museum and so I followed him and his dad around and then his eyes got big.... he saw those big red firetrucks! lol I understood his excitement to the extreme! his dad set him on the floor to look at it.... that didn't work for me.... his dad put him on the running board..... that still wasn't working for me.... his dad said we cant put him up on the seat there is a sign that says we can.....that didn't work for me :o) I just said I will take that sign off if it will make you feel any better... and I did and we put the little guy up on the the old fire truck and he was one happy little camper... I am still not putting up the best of the pictures because I am leaving that to the family, I will put up one that I liked and just had a lot of emotion to me. But truly what a fun thing to go to do.....I and looking forward to someday getting to take pictures of my grandchild in the very same place! to me a treasure! Be Blessed and I will talk to ya tomorrow.
