Please Excuse the Mess

I'm in the middle of overhauling my blog - - I have been itching for a template change for quite some time now, so I am plugging away at that as time permits. I realized earlier this week that my blog is now two years old...I cannot believe it! I seriously never thought I would stick with it for this long. At this point, I can't imagine not blogging - - I really love it. What I love even more are all of the great comments you all leave. It means so much to me that you take time out of your day to check in with me, and even more so, that you want to read what I have to say. Speaking of which, is there anything in particular you'd like to see more of? More pictures? Fewer pictures? More recipes? Crafts? Crazy Griffin stories? Please let me know (via comments) what interests you, because, you know, I aim to please, after all!

Imagine my surprise this morning when I visited one of my favorite blogs, and saw that I'd won a delightful prize. If you haven't done yourself the favor of visiting Thrifty Goodness, please do so - - you won't be sorry! Anyway, I got so excited about winning the gaggle of Martha Goodness, it made me want to have another contest of my own. So, stay tuned for that in the coming days. I am currently dreaming up a goody basket to give away.

We were expecting guests tonight - - Steve's sister Danielle, her husband Aaron, and our new nephew, Max. Alas, their connecting flight out of Chicago was cancelled, so they will not be arriving until sometime tomorrow. My heart goes out to them, because one of my biggest fears is having that happen while traveling with children. I will be happy when they finally make it to Idaho!

Heather, your blogs are so uplifting and funny that I can't wait to look every day to see what craziness is going on for you!! I would love to see more pictures of Idaho, I didn't realize just how beautiful it was there!! Oh, and also of Camden in his costumes and of course....life would be boring without a Griffin story!!

Heather, I definitely read your blog every day and am sad when you don't post a new one but mind you I totally understand! I love being able to feel that I know what is going on even though I see you so rarely! Keep up the great work, love the new updated blog and especially love the new updated kitchen... beautiful job. You put me (and a lot of your readers, I'm sure) to shame, you're so multi-talented! Love you lots. Lee

I was just surprised to find that one of Margaret's relations was so sharp and witty! Who knew?! ;) LOL! (j/k!)

Seriously, I really enjoy reading your blog. Just keep doing what you do - we love it!

How about a list of "Heather's Favorite Things" like Oprah does? Those are always fun.
By the way, I really like your new photos of the family and the large Idaho image. Your blog is a happy place!
