I'm Ba-ack!

It's hard to believe that it's been over two years since I've done a blog post!  I would like to get back in the groove!  Even if no one else reads my words this is a good way to record the life of the Chalfants, for the Chalfants.  Many women that blog are capturing the lives of their small children.  Hannah is 14 now and I still love recording the happenings in her life.  She will begin high school in the fall and I know it will be a very exciting time for her.  I don't want to miss a moment!

March Madness

I love SPRING! I love the blooms on the forsythia, Bradford pear and dogwood trees. I love that my tulips are up and that the days are getting longer. I love the sunshine and warmer temperatures and most of all I love MARCH MADNESS, BABY (imagine that in my best Dick Vitale impersonation)!! A lot of time was spent this weekend in front of the tv keeping up with my bracket (which I'm not doing very well on, thanks UofL) and cheering on my favorite team! I'm so glad it warmed up so I could wear my UK flip flops and share my Big Blue toes with everyone! Now you know my favorite team, who are you cheering for?

Irish I Was A Better Blogger

Hello friends! Yes, I am still around. It has been a VERY LONG time since I've blogged. I'm having a hard time juggling everything now that I'm a working girl! I had to share this year's version of Hannah's all green lunch for St. Patrick's Day. She will be in middle school next year, so I'm thinking this may be the last year for all the fun. I know there will be new kinds of fun, but an all green lunch might be a tad embarrassing! I hope that when she is older she will come to appreciate all the memories that I have tried to make.

I will leave you with this Irish blessing:

Wherever you go and whatever you do
May the luck of the Irish be there with you

Happy St. Patty's Day!

I've Got Spirit, Yes I Do!

We kicked off the holiday season this year by going to Hannah's Christmas dance recital. Since moving to Bowling Green, this has been one of the highlights of our Christmas season here. This year her tap dance was to Michael Buble's version of Let It Snow and her jazz number was to a version of Sleigh Ride. She did a fabulous job, as always. (I would probably say that even if she got on the stage and didn't have a lick of rhythm! I'm allowed, I'm her proud mama!) I always enjoy this performance. The theatre where the recital is held is located in our town square and everything is decorated for the season. I don't know if it was the music, dancing or hearing Let It Snow and then walking outside to find snowflakes falling down around the twinkling lights of our fountain square, but that evening I was officially in the Christmas spirit!

I've got spirit, yes I do! I've got spirit, how bout you?

Happy Birthday Hannah

I am a day late in doing this post. Yesterday my sweet Hannah turned 12 years old. It is astounding at how fast the years are flying by!

Hannah I am so glad that the Lord brought you into my life 12 years ago. You have brought such joy to our family. Daddy and I are so blessed to be your parents. We are so proud of the young lady that you are becoming. Happy Birthday sweet girl, we love you more than you will ever know!

Thankful For Crow's Feet?

This time of year many of us examine our lives and think about the things that we are most thankful for. Sometimes what makes us most thankful are not things at all. One might not be too thrilled about getting those first fine lines and wrinkles, in fact many people spend lots of $$$ to get rid of the signs of aging. I'm thankful for my crow's feet. They are there because there has been a lot of laughter in my life. (I'll blame them on laughter and some squinty days at the beach, for which I am also grateful)!

I hope you all will find something to laugh about this week.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. -E.E. Cummings
