Dec 1-4

So, I decided that in order to keep up with my December Daily I have to make myself accountable by at least blogging about my days.  Then, when I get photos printed I'll add them to my book along with the journaling I'm capturing here on my blog.

(yes, I know, I'm not starting off to well and it seems like I'm getting waaaaay behind, but I'm going to be optimistic here).

I think I've shared quite enough about December 1st and I'm pretty certain everyone is sick to death of hearing about my fabulous 40th birthday, so I'll skip on to December 2nd.

ON my way home from work, this stunning sky was begging to be remembered!

December 3rd was quite eventful.
I worked in my office in Ash Flat, which has this great view out to an old cattle field and woods. At one point I looked up from the computer screen to see deer and cattle graze, squirrels run, and birds flying, all at the same time! Two doe grazed back there all afternoon and at one point they were pretty close to the building.

You can even see the edge of the parking lot in this last shot!

The night included Alex's 4H Banquet.
Alex was honored with being selected Senior 4Her of the Year again this year.

She also was recognized for her outstanding work and in being selected as a Teen Star and State Ambassador. It was very touching to hear others say such wonderful things about Alex and her abilities in writing, working with younger kids, elderly, animals, and always willing to work hard for what she wants. What a great example she was to all the other 4Hers (and adults) who were attending the banquet!

I am so proud of her and hope she keeps on being true to herself and always reaching for her goals, no matter how difficult they may be to achieve.
