We have a tradition of making my uncle, Duane, pose with all of the children. He pretends it is torture, but secretly loves every second of our "Photo Shoot with Duane." Some pictures from his photo shoot might even make his Christmas card to the family! Here is one of our "funny" pics:
All the grandchildren with my grandmother!!! (L-R: me, Aimee, Becky, Hayley)
Cousin Pic: You could technically call this a sister pic, because my little (but taller) cousin Hayley is pretty much like another sister to us! We LOVE her!!
Daddy and his girls!!! Just wish his eyes were open, but this picture def. is one of my favorites of us!!And now....Let the games begin!!! All of the younger cousins headed to the bowling alley for some "exercise" after we ate our weight in fixings. First stop: Bowling...we ended up bowling 4 games! Guess you could say we got carried away!! Aimee was the champion, but I did win one of the games!

Many of you have asked if I will keep doing the "climb" blog now that my internship is over. The answer is YES! It just so happens that this theme works perfect for "what's next" with my career.
"It's the Climb" was designed to follow my journey from having a passion in events to experiencing my event design and production internship in Los Angeles, and now the next step is.... STARTING MY OWN BUSINESS!!!! : )
I am SO very excited to tell you that I have decided to launch my own Event Design & Production company here in the southern region in January 2010!!!!! And you, fellow blog readers, will get to witness each step of my climb in starting and launching my own business.
This decision was a no-brainier for me the last week I was in LA, doors were closing there as more doors were opening in Arkansas and surrounding areas. I really felt like this was the perfect time to start my own company! I hope you will keep reading my blog and staying up with my climb as I develop a new small business based in Maumelle, Arkansas that caters to the entire Southern Region! Thank you all for your words of encouragement, advice, and recommendations. I truly appreciate them all! Hope you enjoy my next step in "It's the Climb"....
Check out the Bridge they are building over the Hoover Dam!
Once we got to Kingston, Arizona, we hopped on the "noun" (person, place, thing) that knows me the best.....Interstate-40 for 1,400 miles crossing into New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas!It really was such a fun trip! My Mom and I got into Arkansas Saturday night right as the Razorback game was coming on the radio! So the last 2 hours of our ride were very enjoyable, as the Hogs were working hard to beat Troy and become Bowl eligible!!!
Thank you Mom for driving back with me. I had so much fun with you! Love you!
