some things I might have neglected to tell you....

okay, it's time for confession....
ready for all my dark nasty sins...

sorry, not gonna happen....

but I have made some horrible blogging 'sins' when I failed to tell you about two very important events in my life recently...

1.  We did it...we bought the mini...I blogged about my desire to own a mini van over a year ago....
it's been about a month and a half now...maybe 7 weeks...and I love my mini...we went and picked her out on the Monday before Christmas, picked her up on the day after...
broke her in by taking the family to see Christmas lights...
another trip about a week later I took my kids...and a few others...
sans husband or any other adult for that matter...to the snow...
that might have been the day that I fell in love with my mini...
she was wonderful, held all the kids and all the stuff needed for a day in the snow...
help me get them there and back safe...
had numerous places for kids to change out of snow clothes and into warm dry clothes...
she proved herself worthy of the name mini van!
don't know why I never told you guys about her...
wasn't trying to hide her, I'm NOT ashamed of her AT ALL....
I think it was just such a long process of us looking for and buying a mini van (we've been looking for over a year)...that I was just done by the time we drove her home!

2. okay...second MAJOR confession...
I can't believe that I have kept this to myself for so long...
I think I was too nervous to share the news with anyone, I didn't want it to be false, I wanted to believe, and I had prayed and hoped for this day for awhile and think I was just in shock over it actually happening that I kept it a secret just in case it was short lived...
the husband...my Beau...(he just gagged)...
is back on cheese...

I told him he should never have quit the cheese like that...
we are the family with the motto,

"Everything's Better With Cheddar"

...how can the husband, father, leader of our home turn his back on our motto...
well, he has come back home...
he is now eating cheese again, the world is whole again,
the birds have started singing
the flowers are blooming (no, they actual are blooming, in February!) ...

and Beau is eating cheese again!
