Face Lift

Okay, I know what you all are thinking... If Janice had a facelift she needs to get a lawyer. But here are the before and after pictures of my face lift. Well, my house's face lift. We got new windows, but just on the front for now. We needed them so badly. The last time we took the storm windows off to clean them, Larry had to stick a toothpick in the screw hole to be able to put them back on the house. After saving up some more money I will get the ones in the back replaced, and then someday maybe the side ones. Anyway, I think it is quite an improvement.

Forgive Me!

Bloggers, forgive me for I have sinned. It has been nearly a month since my last blog.

I actually have several things to blog about, so I will get busy.

I had a birthday last week - the 16th anniversary of my 39th birthday. Hilary and Brent took us to eat Saturday night at JB's (yum). I snapped a cute picture of Rhett reading the menu. He is advanced, you know.

The Hubbards gave me a beautiful crystal tray that I had seen awhile back and fell in love with. The Davidsons and Larry both gave me a charm for my "Pandora Bracelet." They both actually gave me the same one, so I will exchange one of them.

I love my Pandora bracelet. My family loves it too because they always know something they can get me for birthday, Christmas,Mother's Day, etc., since I'm not very good at giving them hints about what I want. Larry got me the bracelet for Christmas last year. The kids and grandkids have all given me charms. Every bracelet is unique since you can add whatever charms you want.
I have kind of a "family theme" going for mine, though I do have other charms, too. If you can see from the picture - my birthstone is the red charm. Larry, Brent and Rhett all have August birthdays and their's is the green charm. Sydnie's is blue for her September birthday and Jeremy's is white for June. Hilary and Hollace both have October birthdays so their charm is pink.

I also have a little girl and a little boy representing Hollace and Rhett. I have a music note since I love music...and a couple other charms I have added.
If you don't have a Pandora bracelet, you should ask your family to start you one. Or if you need a gift for someone, it's a neat thing to start...kind of a new tradition.
Speaking of traditions - my next blog I will tell you what Hilary and I made recently, that hopefully will become a tradition for us. Then I will blog about my recent face-lift. But for now, I think I will go home after a long day's work!
P.S. I have tried to put a space between paragraphs over and over. I've tried about 6 times. I will now give up. If there's some of you reading this that is bugged by the fact that some have spaces and some don't, I apologize. It does bug me, but I'm giving in to it for now.
