Need ideas on starting a family website or something

So the Taggards are now spread all over the place and no one seems to know what is going on with the other families. Amber and I were talking about setting up a webpage or something where everyone can post whats going on, share calendars, pictures and stuff like that. I know some of you have sites like that for your families and would like to know how do you start it and all that jazz. Any help would be great.

Christmas time!

I am already so far behind schedule. I have yet to bake cookies or make candy and heaven knows the cards will not be sent this year. It kills me because normally at Christmas everything is on time and just right but since mike is back in school and now working more shifts I seem to be barely able to keep any kind of Christmas spirit in the house. We are going to try and make cookies tonight (depends on if I can get the kitchen cleaned) and then some candy this weekend. We are then going to deliver some of each to friends and loved ones. That should help brighten the jolly in our holly. I am just glad that I had the tree and presents all done before December hit.

PMS Hairdresser

So in a fit of PMS anger at my hair being boring I grabbed a pair of siccors from the wrapping paper box (not even hair ones) and grabbed my hair and started chopping. As I looked in the sink and say lots of hair I freaked out. It has been a day now and I actually like it. However, I will never again give myself a PMS haircut! mind you that the picture was taken at the end of a very long 8 hour day at work.

Capitol Lighting Ceremony

So we had a lot of fun this past weekend. We got the lights up on our house, finished a science fair project and even had enough time to go to the capitol lighting ceremony. The kids were so excited! We promised fireworks, lights and most of all Santa! It helped that it was actually cold outside too. It was just what we needed to really kick off the magic of the season. Here are some pics for you to enjoy!It was a little bit of a walk to the capitol but it was worth it.
Princess and her slave, I mean Daddy!

Me and Link waiting for the show.

Me and my boys! Beau is actually leaning down a bit! He is going to be a tall boy.

Life lessons

I learned a great life lesson the other night. I have some serious sinus issues going on so I decided to get some clariton D to help dry it up so I can move on with my life. Well, after signing over my first born and promising that I was not going to make meth with the 10 pills I was allotted ( btw, really, who only needs 10 pills!) I went home and started thinking of how much relief I would get. Something in the back of my head told me not to take the meds in the evening but to wait until morning. Did I listen? No. I took them and figured that I was already so tired that I would have no problems sleeping. Just to be safe and since the meds had not cleared me up I took some NyQuil and went to bed. I started the hunger games that night (book not diet) and expected to fall asleep while reading. A few hours later I am still awake so I decided to put the book away and try to sleep. It works, sort of, I doze on and off the rest of the night and each time dream that I am sending each of my children off to fight to the death for our district. In short I woke up still tired, cranky and a bit confused as to why the kids were still at the house when they should have been in a battle. Life lesson number 40,294,123: don't take sinus meds chased with NyQuil before bed and then read a book, you won't sleep and when you do it will be with crazy dreams.
