Long time no blog

It has been a while since I have been on here. I cannot say enough that I am so ready for this year to be over with. Christmas time is my favorite time of the year, this year however seemed to just be another weekend with a few extra days on it. It has been a hard year and even harder holidays without my dad.

Shawn has got the job at Grief in Wright City working 2nd shift at a factory. He has not started this job however but we will hopefully get a start date soon. It should be in the first few weeks of the new year.

I have been taking pictures for friends and family lately and having a blast. This has been my own get a way from things and I enjoy it very much. I decided to open a business for photography. I plan on getting an LLC set up and to start doing what I enjoy to get extra money! Anyone who knows me, photos have always been a huge part of my life with scrapbooking and old family albums so this is perfect for me.

We have a new nephew!! He was born 12/22/09. His name is Evan Joseph Tuley and the little brother of Lily Jane. Everyone is doing well and he is adorable! He looks like his uncle Shawn's baby picture to a T.

Unfornitatly, also on 12/22/09, my uncle passed away. He lived in Tulsa OK with his wife Lisa and son Robert. My heart hurts for his wife and children during this holiday season. This is the second son my grandmother has lost in under a year. This is another huge tragagy for our family, and only god can give us the streght to get through these things. My Uncle Richard was a man I looked up to very much and will miss. I just visited with him over the thanksgiving holiday and he was very pround to show me his new place and the deer they feed and tons of video! I enjoy very much hanging out with the Starks side of the family, yet it is very hard since they are all so much like my dad.

On a lighter note, I am so excited for new years. We are having friends at our house for poker and rock band! I hope 2010 is a much better year then this year, but only time will tell.
