Familyx12 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Familyx12 Blog Hop. This hop is designed to encourage us to take a family photo every month. Since I take photos every month and it is just me and Robbie, I was sure that I was already getting multiple photos of us together each month. However, as I looked back at my January and March photos, I only found one photo of the two of us together for those months. There were, of course, some of us by ourselves or with other people, but not as many as I thought of just the two of us.This monthly blog hop will help me be accountable for getting at least one photo of us together each month.

BEEP-BEEP-BEEP
I must interrupt this blog post to announce that yesterday ROBBIE ACCEPTED A JOB OFFER to be the next CFO for a company based right here in the Dallas area! Yes, after 12 months of unemployment (due to the fact that he helped sell the company he was working for), he returns to work next week! YIPPEE - that means we don't have to move, I don't have to pack, and I can do all those little home projects I've been putting off while we were in the waiting stage wondering where the next job would take us. Isn't God good!
