Yes - I am still here

Just wanted all to know - that time for blogging has fallen to the bottom of the list of priorities these days - but I miss letting everyone know how the Odom family is doing. My goal after the summer is to put more pics and info at least once a week. Hold me accountable everyone.

Yes - life is busy

Just wanted to let all of the guys that read our blog - that things are going along and busy these days. I promise that I will get new pictures on the blog soon. Between ballet, birthday parties, bible study and just everyday life, it has been very busy. No excuses though. I promise new pics of Kate over christmas, dressup and other fun times will follow. Hope all is well with everyone and hope to hear from all of you soon.

A Long Time

Wow - what a long time since I have written anything. Since the last time, I was deathly sick for two weeks over Thanksgiving - so didn't get to have much time with my family. Kate and Steve were quite the troopers - while I laid in bed for about 10 days. But slowly have recovered and had a great Christmas with the family. I will upload some Christmas pics and videos later today.

Hope the New Year finds each and everyone one of you well and in anticipation of the upcoming year. I have set my goals (as I have done for every year for a very long time) - not resolutions, and looking forward to becoming a better mom, wife and follower of Christ. I am going through the bible study "believing God" by Beth Moore and pray that my faith will become stronger.

Look forward to communicating with you guys more frequently this year.

She is just growing up

Can I say enough, how fortunate I am to have a little one? It seems that each new day brings more things to just smile and laugh about. Just today (as she was home sick) she looked at me and said "santa needs a list and I want lipstick". And then comes up and says "i want to tell you a secret - and for her to whisper, I love you too" WOW!!! Can she be that grown up?? She has now begun to really understand the concept of Santa and all it means... She sees the Toys R Us and Target christmas toy "books" and lets Steve and I know what Santa might want to bring her. I am trying hard to compete with Santa and always remind her that the true meaning of Christmas is because of Jesus and his birth.... We will have another birthday party for Jesus - just to keep the true meaning in Christmas.

What an awesome responsibility we have as parents.... but how scary it all is - trusting and relying purely on God to show us what is right when raising our children - but at the same time giving us just a glimpse of what he feels for us.... Thanks God....

October Sights

H A L L O W E E N- she had the best time. This year is the first time that she really knew what was going on and how it was about saying "trick or treat" and then getting some goodies. She is not a shy child, even going so far as to ask a woman who was handing out candy at the hospital (the kids at Baylor School for Children - where she goes to school - go to the hospital to go trick or treating) - could she have the small pumpkin that was on top of her computer monitor - which she proceeded to give Kate.

She looked so cute as a flapper. We did trunk or treat at church which these pics are from. She had the best time. It is so much fun to see things through her eyes.

She also got to enjoy some pumpkins. Here she is enjoying time at the arboretum with all the pumpkins.... She looked so cute in her little bluejean jacket.

Hope October found everyone healthy and happy........
