December Memories.....

Hey blogland friends.....I know I haven't kept my promise but I thought I would update you with our December memories.  Remember you can click to enlarge.  Below I'll label the pictures from top, left to right on each line.

1 & 2 - Lexi danced at a Christmas program in another town.
3 - Voice Lessons - vocal music concert.
4 - Choir Concert - school grades 6th through 12th 
5 - Decked out for her Middle School Winter Dance
6 - With her "group" of girlfriends at the dance
7 - Friends having fun.......being mannequins in store
8 - It's Midnight!!!!!
9 - Waiting for Trans-Siberian Orchestra to start.  We saw them twice in December!!  Once in Oklahoma City and then with friends in Dallas, Texas
10 - Skating with friends on Christmas night
11 - Our tradition of a Christmas Eve brunch
12 - Lexi's BIG present.....a piano keyboard
13 - Posing with our knives.  My Dad (second from right) made the knives and holders for each of us (left to right- me, my brother, my Dad, hubby Alan)
14 - Our Family - my brother, my Mom, my Dad, me, Alan and Lexi in front 

As you can see we have been busy, busy, BUSY!!!  It is absolutely wonderful though.  Below I am sharing a collage of Lexi and Landon.  They have also been keeping us busy!  Movies, skating, lunches and just roaming around.  Young love is just too sweet and Alan and I hope these two stay together for a while.  You couldn't ask for a sweeter, kinder boy!  Lexi has also been to church with him several times and we are going to go visit their church this Sunday.  
Several of you have told me your Facebook name and if I haven't friended you yet, it is because I can't seem to find you :(  I have been on Facebook and if you want to friend me there I am under Darlene Tipton Munkus.  I have been missing all of you and hope to be visiting you soon.♥

Too many spelling errors .. bad keyboard .. bad fingers ... 2nd try ~

Great collages. I knew you were busy but .. wow. You sure know how to celebrate the Holiday Season.

The running children around from this activity to the next .. I so know how that is.

My youngest is now 18 and going to college (yes, he got in where he wanted to go) next year.

My busy busy years are over .. at least I think they are.

Oh, I got the mag in the mail (that I won from you) a week ago.

Thank You !!!

Amelia said...

Darlene, December was busy for you! That daughter is such a cutie!

Her boyfriend looks like a nice young man.

Shelia said...

Darlene! I've missed you! What a busy month you've had. I just can hardly believe how Lexi has grown up. She is so pretty, Darlene, and such a busy young lady.
What a sweet little couple those two make! I remember these days with my daughter! Soak them up.
Be a sweetie and Happy New Year!
Shelia ;)

Hi Darlene, I am so happy to see your memories post. Lexi is just darling and growing up. Her boyfriend is very handsome and looks like a sweet guy. He has to be to be Lexi's boyfriend. Smile.Your photos are all so sweet. I enlarged your mosaic. I love it very much. Nice job.

I haven't forgotten my favorite bloggers, We have been in Florida for two weeks all together. Christmas week and a week in January. Lot of busy times at Christmas and our grandson's wedding this past weekend. It is good to be back and catching up. I posted our grandson's wedding today and more tomorrow. Our Ashley that Lexi always reminds me of. is in the photos on the wedding post. She is 5'10" tall. All of our grands were there and 4 of our 5 children.

We are snowed in now for the past three days. So snow and it is still snowing. Very pretty with our mountain covered in white.

I hope all is well with you and yours Darlene. I do miss you and I need to find you on facebook.Smile.
Stay warm and Happy New Year.
Warm hugs, Jeanne

Jeanne said...

Hey Darlene, I have wondered about you all and hope things are going well. I do miss you but I also understand that we move on and busy ourselves with new mountains to climb and other interests to follow. I too have had little time for visiting but still manage to post something and also missing days when I am too busy. I totally know there is life after blogging.

I wish you a full life doing things you want to accomplishment. Blogging is kind of like a journal to me. Sharing and writing events and things that appeal to me. Thoughts of you and your sweet family just keep popping up and good memories are a good thing.

Blessings and love,

The total point about Hulk's unlimited strength is balderdash, since in all probability the green 1 would revert back again to Bruce Banner before he acquired mad sufficient and hence strong sufficient to equal Superman in native strength. I find it also likely that Superman, becoming a fast research of his foes' abilities, would know he have to unleash his awesome in complete just
before Hulk could anger himself for the suitable dimensions to give
Superman a run for his money. I think also that Superman will be
the foe to give Hulk/Banner that fatal heart attack that is just waiting for him.
The radical transformation from Banner towards the Hulk has to wreak havoc with his nervous system,
and his perpetual rage doubtlessly makes his blood pressure a bomb just waiting to take
him out. Superman , a cooler head and smarter, faster, stronger fighter, is just the a single to possess Hulk drop useless due to his own raging ways.

I think that what you posted was actually very logical.

But, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier title?
I am not suggesting your content is not solid, but what if you added something that makes people desire
more? I mean "December Memories....." is a little plain. You might look
at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
