update on us

It has been about five months since I last posted in this blog.  I am sorry. I don't have any pictures either because I am posting on Kindle but I will be sure to get a computer soon and  post some pictures of my kids funny antics.  Recently, we have gotten a picture of Hannah after she completely covered her hair in avocado.  And one of her when she decided decided to hop in the tub with Taylor fully clothed.  They also have fun dressing up in costumes and I got a cute picture of her dressed up as a fireman.  We actually get to go to the fire station down the block in a couple of weeks, it will be fun to see what they both think of it this time, especially Taylor.  Taylor just had his preschool graduation a couple of weeks ago and was so excited he got the official diploma and hat.  He even ended up sleeping in it that night and I got a picture of that.  He was glad his Dad was able to take some time off of work to be there and told Brian thank you a couple of times.   So we won't be doing preschool until fall but we will continue what we call Little Harvard through the summer.

One Word

I was reading one of my favorite blogs and was led to this blog http:/  I loved the idea they had of facing the year with one word in mind.

First, you are supposed to think about what kind of person you want to be at the end of the year or more importantly the kind of person God is leading you to be.
Second, you are supposed to think about words that describe that person.
Third, you pick one word that you will personify this year.

My word is: Charity

 All these other goals are well and good but I am excited to do all that I do this year with this one word in mind.  What would your one word be?

New Year 2013

Ok, so this post will not have any pictures because I am writing it on my kindle fire.  I have been thinking about my new year resolutions and I thought it would be a good time to make some goals.  Just as Christ "grew in wisdom and stature" I need to be continually improving myself.

- 2 dates a month.
-  Pack Brian a nice lunch and note once a week.
- Talk about about budget monthly and week plans every Sunday.
- Make a list of 15 things I can do to show Brian love and do them.
- Read two books about Marriage.

- Have a summer and Halloween craft class.  25 total kids
 -  Complete 12 sewing projects.
-  Learn to mend and shorten clothes.  Complete 30 items.
- Read 36 books this year.
- Become a better teacher, seek to improve my Sharing Time lessons and start preparing 2 weeks ahead.

Be a more patient and loving mother
- Blog at least once a week about my kids and family, throughout the week write down the little things and the big things that make me smile in wonder and the things that make me want to scream.
- Play with my kids everyday.
- Take more pictures, make a picture book of Hannah. and one of the whole family.
- Laugh More.
- Read the Book of Mormon with my relationships with my kids in mind.

- Track calories and weight.
- Eat a sit down meal with my family at least 5 Times a week.
- Can at least 100 quarts of fruit, 50 quarts of tomatoes, and 50 quarts carrots/green
beans.  Make Green Tomato Curry 12 pints, freeze a couple more bags.
- Make rice-a- roni mixes in jars.
- Can 36 pints of chicken.

So that's it, now to put the plan into action.  I will try to look at this monthly and report my progress.
