2013 Goals

I will not call these New Years resolutions. I will call them goals.

- I hope to stop caring so much what people think and do things ONLY to please my family and myself. I do care about others (obviously) and not to toot my own horn, but I think I have a pretty big heart. I guess the point of this statement is just to say that I cannot believe it has taken me twenty six years to realize that it is absolutely impossible to please everyone. There is nothing you can do about it and sometimes even the smallest and stupidest things are going to make someone ill. All you can do is ignore it until they finally get over it.

- I hope to start a garden. We have had a small garden for the last few years, and while I don't have the space to plant a huge spread, I hope to plant a lot more than we have in previous years.

- I hope to take my kids to visit the mouse again. I was already a Disney addict but our trip this past September has fueled the fire extremely. Fall break is my goal and hopefully we will be entering Main Street USA on September 22nd.

- I hope to be better at working out. I am so surprised every day at just how addicting and motivating it actually can be. I plan to switch it up. I have already talked to my dad about starting hiking...

- I hope to be the best mother and wife I can be. Pretty self explanatory... ;)

Bits & Pieces

 Lucas gave his teachers Starbuck's gift cards for Christmas. We put some tissue paper into empty cups along with the cards, then attached this cute little printable that we found on pinterest.

 Sibling love!

 Someone enjoyed her first Hershey kiss...

Someone else begs for hot chocolate in his Santa cup all the time...

 This little lady got all dressed up for her bubba's Christmas party at school.

The tights were her favorite part, as she pointed to them over and over and said "Ooo wee!"

Paisley and I headed out on Wednesday and got all of the groceries that we needed through Christmas and finished up the shopping. The kids last day of school before Christmas was yesterday so today we have wrapped almost all of our presents and made some cookies. We are about to go get crafty with some ornaments and make some more cookies and a cake. Tomorrow we have a FULL day planned so we are trying to get as much done as possible!!

Christmas Pics 2012

The kids and I did a mini photo shoot in the back yard at the last minute yesterday. I didn't have Christmas pictures made and I honestly feel like trying to make even a quick picture of the three of them is exhausting. So we just decided to go to the back yard and have fun with it. I have to say I think it worked!

The above may be my favorite photo of him ever. LOVE that silly boy...


SO sweet...

 This one is the only one of all three of them where she wasn't mad. It was on her terms and she just walked into the picture and sat down. Whatever it takes!!

So sorry for picture overload! Love those babies!
