December Update & New News!

As you can tell, I have decided not to participate this year with the Christmas Advent Calendar. I re-ran my posts from 2009 last year and didn't feel I wanted to re-run them again. Because I transition my blog into books (by Blog2Print), I figured having those posts twice was enough! I love GeneaBloggers Christmas Advent Calendar, and I hope you are following and reading some posts you haven't read before.


We had guests at our home last Saturday evening for a little celebration before our Christmas dinner, so I needed to have all of my Christmas things up and ready by December 3. I think this was the earliest I have been completed with this task. Normally my Christmas cards are about done and ready to go out, but these two things have swapped places this year. I will be working on my cards next.


I also have catching up still to do from my vacation and figured this was a good time to do catch up posts! I am still trying to figure out where I am missing the #31WBGB days event, as I have ended on the 15th day I believe. Is it possible the cycle was never finished? Still looking into that.


I have another craft event this coming weekend and need to work on some items to replace those that were sold at the last event. It has been so much fun, but such a shame it has all been so last minute. I am looking to planning ahead for next year and possibly a few other events as well!


Then, there is the "New News" ~ Since it has been announced at a membership meeting, I think it is safe to share that I will be next year's First Vice President and Program Chair for L-AGS! L-AGS is the Livermore Amador Genealogical Society. It all happened so quick and I really didn't feel I had much say, but there you have it and here I am! I have been attending the board meetings and getting ready for the transition. I will be looking for speakers for our general meetings, so if you are local and would like to speak, please don't hesitate to let me know!


Yesterday I spent about 6 hours trying to catch up and do things for my classes and my new L-AGS position, up and coming. I am not caught up yet, but I hope I can be by the end of the month! On that note, I will sign off for now and wish you all a wonderful December day!


Thanks for stopping by! 


Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  2. Congratulations on your Vice-Presidency! Welcome to the wonderful world of genealogy society executive boards! LOL I am so very proud of you Cheryl!

    By the by - Denise Levenick and Amy Coffin want a report on our goals we set when we became buddies last January and have they been met. They double-dog dared us publically on their blogs today! LOL I will post my reply on my blog tonight. While we kind of petered out after a month or so, I actually met both of my goals and I couldn't, wouldn't have done it without your friendship and support!
    XXXOOO
