I can’t believe we have not posted in a year + a few days. Well, we have been busy, so it kinda makes sense… that and we just decided to live in the moment more and not worry about posting to social medias for others. We just really looked inside and are taking in as much as we can with our boys, juggling student teaching with school and of course Heather working long hours and being an awesomely supportive wife and mother.
We are so ready for our next chapter to begin and it will soon, just need to finish the one in front of first.
Here is a pic that embodies us and what is important to us…
and first time use with the go pro/iMovie combo.
This year we unfortunately weren’t able to continue a tradition which we were hoping to do for a long time… the Kids Gift Exchange. We waited to long to send out an evite, December is a busy month and I am not sure of how much interest there really is… and that is okay! Instead, we decided to just do a gift exchange/Heather’s bday celebration with the most gracious Clise Crew. We were spoiled with tons of treats & eats! It was quite a splendid time and hopefully we can get the whole group of kids together next year and just consider this year a hiatus, either way, it was a fantastic time! No matter what the rogers blend/Clise Crew tradition shall continue!
Another month down and another photo shoot was had… and since it was near the holidays, why not add some extra holiday cheer into what was already going to be a super cheery pic, especially with this happy lil guy!
So, I was doing some stuff in our bedroom today… for a little more than 5 minutes. During this time Hudson was doing some coloring at the table with his pens and a new coloring book. I am listening to him and he is doing his typical coloring banter, nothing new, just jabbering away about what he is coloring and the colors he is using. Then, he starts saying something about a tiger and in this coloring book, I would not have that thought there was one in it but I went with it. In other words, I am just thinking he is coloring a tiger… I hear him get off his chair and come running saying, “Daddy, daddy I’m a tiger! I’m a tiger!” I am thinking he is going to turn the corner with his book in hand with a tiger colored. I was wrong…
(who isn’t feeling all that well, but still having fun!)
The tradition was picked back up this year… we took a hiatus due to my knee surgery last year. So, this year we went back out to Stocker Farms and cut down our xmas tree again, we did it for Hudson’s first xmas and this year we were determined to do it for Declan’s! It actually was much more difficult than we thought, mostly because a lot of things are more difficult having two kids. Here is a nice collage the photog put together.
So, since doing my last post and thinking more and more about things… I realized others just aren’t into this blog as much as we are, and to be honest… we own the pictures, memories and stories that go on with the rogers blend.
Therefore, I am wavering on closing this blog down.
It just seems we only do this blog for ourselves and just a few others, not really sure of the number but it is very slim who we come to this site and even less comment on it. Our reason for doing this site was to share with friends and family on what we are up to and in doing so we hoped to have an open ended communication with those who like what were up to, are curious about how things went or just want to make a comment be it normal or extremely strange.
As I said, the blog has gone down on the list of priorities and if I am just doing this for a very select few… unfortunately, I need to reevaluate the worth of my time and the reciprocation we get from others.
I guess we will just see where this takes us!
