Tales of a Georgia Peach!

My baby turned 14 last week. She is growing up so fast. She is doing such a great job with her guitar lessons and she has a beautiful voice, when she will sing for me. She's turning in to quite the young lady. She has been doing some modeling for her cousin who is an aspiring photographer. These pictures that I am about to post are of my 14 year old daughter and they were taken by her 16 year old cousin.

Wow, has really been since September since I've posted anything? I've been really busy and on the road alot and getting ready to get back on the road today. My husband was transferred to Atlanta back in October, so he's there and I'm still here. Our house is still for sale so at least I do still have a place to stay, not that I couldn't stay at my parents. I'm still waiting to be able to apply for a GA nursing license, it feels like it is taking forever. I will definatley be here for a few months longer. Which it has been really good that I've had to wait that long because Morgan's grandmother died the same week that my husband was transferred. She had pancreatic cancer that had spread to her brain and liver. She was so sick and its really a blessing that she is no longer suffering, although we all miss her terribly.

It's going to be a very hard transition for me when I'm finally there. Morgan is choosing to stay here with her dad. That is going to be the hardest thing that I've ever done is leaving her here and only seeing her for short visits here and there. Everyone asks me what I want for Christmas, the only thing I want is what I can't have, and that's for Morgan to go with me. It would make for a much easier transition to have here there with me. But I'll take what I can get.

On happier notes, I am finished decorating for Christmas. No Griswald Christmas tree this year. I went out and picked out the real tree with Morgan and got it home, but couldn't get it in the stand. So my daddy came over and helped me and I treated him with dinner. I really downsized this year since there is only me and Morgan, Eric will be coming home at Christmas but not before. After I was done decorating, it almost looked like I hadn't even touched the ornament boxes. I have so many ornaments, but not a single one that I could part with and I buy more every year. That is a tradition of ours, we purchase an ornament on every trip we take. It has to be something that is special to the location. I have enough to do one whole tree in nothing but our vacation ornaments. I love getting them out each year, I find ones that I did not remember having, and I look at the ones that Morgan made in school and then I remember when she was that little and it almost makes me cry. I guess I should say does make me cry. She's not a baby anymore, she will be 14 next week. I'll save all of that for another post.

I was also the winner of the new pattern give away over at Cinderberry Stitches. She is so talented. If you haven't been to her blog you have to go.

We've also had a little snow this year. Not much just enough to cause a few accidents and some school delays. But it was so pretty and made everything feel like Christmas.

Well, I hope I haven't bored you all with everything that is going on around here. I guess I should say, that I am going to Atlanta this weekend and have been going there some and my husband has been coming here some as well. And that will be our life for a few more months. But I do hope to do better at keeping you all posted to everything that I have going on. Next time I will post about my projects that I've been working on.
