New Year, Let's do it.

Okay, I feel the need to share my New Year's Resolutions. Maybe that will mean that I am a little more likely to keep them. Okay, here we go:

So a young woman in our ward gave her testimony and said how the pride cycle always caught up the the people in the book of mormon and was their downfall. Then she said, "how about this year we don't do the part where we forget about God". That is resolution # 1. Keep my relationship with God #1.

2. Have dinner on the table by 5:30. I think this could change my life. Children seem to behave better when they have an early dinner.

3. Spend alone time with each child each day. Sometimes it doesn't happen, but this year it will!

4. Keep up with the laundry (boring, but laundry makes my world go round).

5. Wow, I really don't have a lot of resolutions. I guess I just want to be all around more put-together this year. Last year I was pregnant and tired, and then a very tired, always-exhausted new mom. I felt like a failure constantly because I just couldn't keep up with all the demands in my life, but I kept putting one foot in front of the other. Now, it's time to rise to all of my responsibilities and do better at being a wife, mother, and housekeeper. I guess my new year's resolution is to be me, but more amazing. Cheers~!

ps. I chose this particular version of our Christmas picture because this is what it's really always like around here! Kids in constant motion, and parents trying to hold it together!
