So...... just reducing my stress by jamming out to my blog music. So much fun! I know you all do it too.
Dance around the house with the music full blast, freaking out the cats and blowing off some steam.
I highly recommend it.
Just don't let the kids catch you, they will make a note to commit you when you get to old.
Crazy old dancing cat lady!

Dancing on a fall evening

Well not much painting going on at the moment. So.. I helped my youngest daughter get ready for her first homecoming dance tonight. I just love these milestones. Another milestone a wedding. Tonight Greg and I went to a wedding reception for a daughter of good friends of ours. We are at the age when all of ours friends' children are getting married, as have two of ours in the past two years. This is the 4th reception this year. We left as the sun was setting and the father was dancing with his daughter the bride. What a beautiful ending to the string of receptions. What a beautiful night to dance!

Summer has come and gone, and it has been lovely.
I am still trying to keep the tomatoe plants from freezing, I tuck them in every night.
I have so many lovely green orbs on the vine that still need to turn ruby red!
Fried green tomatoes anyone?

May is here, but we still have so many April showers:( I really need more sun!!!
I haven't planted a garden yet, but may pick up the plants today with Alissa. I promised to buy a bunch of flowers for her porch for graduation. Yes, my girl graduated from college yesterday! It was so wonderful and we took pictures and went out to eat. So much fun, I just love these type of occasions!
A couple of weeks ago, our family, well 3 of us, traveled to Moab for a weekend. So beautiful, I want to go back with the rest of the family.

Then you have Easter. Then my daughter's birthday on the 14th. ,and we had a BBq at the Hansen's, her in laws. Again a wonderful time! Well April is always crazy.

How Embarassing

Wow it is harder than I thought to keep up on a blog.
I am not one to check in on my e-mails or my blogs on a daily basis. As you can see not even a weekly or monthly basis.
Well that is going to change. To all my family and friends that check to see if I have posted or not. I am making a commitment to check in weekly or by-weekly and keep you all updated with my life, my family and my art.

Holidays, Come and Gone

Wow seems like we were just eating turkey on Thanksgiving.
Keeping up on a blog may take a little more dicipline.

December was great! We planned a few activities for the family. It started with the cookie dough day. Alissa, Anna, Shantel and I made 4 different cookie doughs so that we could bake treats on a moments notice in the month of December. Later that night the boys showed up to sample and watch a game on TV. It was so fun to have a houseful.

The next week we went out to eat with Layna and the girls (Anna's sister and nieces) so cute!
And it was snowing and cold but we went to Temple square, Aggie had never been.

We had the usual parties Cox/Bowman party early in the month. And the Vernon Christmas eve party on the 23rd this year. Freeing up Christmas eve gave us the opportunity for just the 4 at home to go out and eat and rent a movie. I loved extending the holiday for 1 more day!

Oh I have my own studio space set up (Yippee) now that Anna and Bryce have moved into their own apartment. This happened at the end of November.

Well now on to the New Year!
More to come!
