Day 1 - Blog Party - Introductions

Sponsors: Day One Blog Party Question is Brought to you by La Belle Toile and This and That by Randi: Intro to Blog Party, Introduce us to your family and share Holiday pics or videos of past years (Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving)

Hello and Welcome to the Momdot Blog Party! I never know where to begin with these introductions. Ummm... Hello. My name is Michelle and I am blogaholic. I have only been blogging for a couple of months now, but I am hooked. On second thought, maybe that's not the right type of introduction?

How about I am a mother to one crazy four year old (our whirlwind) who can be the sweetest thing one minute and a tantrum throwing thing the next. My husband and I have been friends for 15 years and married for 8. We got married in 2000 so counting the years would be easy. I am orginally from the Cheese State but now live in the Centennial State but I still have an undying affection for all things cheese. One of my favorite Christmas ornaments is a cheese wedge that my husband lets me hang on our tree only if it's placed deep inside the back branches.

The following are some pictures from our holidays past. So sit back and enjoy.

What a big family you guys have! Love that everyone wore the santa hats for the picture. Such cute girls too!

All those santa hats, what a great idea!

Sarah said...

Please tell me that it's a cheese wedge ornament and not a real piece of cheese. 'Cause I'm just saying! A real one? Up all Christmas? I'm not sure when you put your tree up but that could get a bit rank!

Jenna said...

Morgan is adorable! I love it!

Tena said...

Tell your hubby that he should be happy that it's only a cheese ornament, it could be a cheese tree topper lol.
