And...On To Resolutions

I love this time of year! It feels like a fresh start, a clean slate. I usually start my list about mid October. This year it's pretty obvious things...Lose weight, work on my patience, get organized, lose weight - you get it.

Anyway, I'd love to hear what you've got on your lists! I'd also love to hear your plans for accomplishing them! We started last year sitting down with the kids to make some plans for them. I can't wait to do that again!

So - I'd love some inspiration and/or teammates on my resolutions!

Good Luck to us all! 2008 is OUR YEAR!

Happy, Happy, Merry, Merry!

And on to Resolutions! Hope you all had a great day!

Can't Wait for Christmas Day?!?

Thatcher just came into the room and asked me "What can you do with Coal?"
Hope your days are going better than mine!

I'm a Proud Tree Hugger

This is the beautiful tree in my front yard!
That's with a flash and here's no flash.

I think that this is; well, pretty much; well, TRUE!!!!

These two good men, exploited by the woMAN!

This is my rebuttal to my old post!

To the Tune of "It's My Party and I'll Cry if I want to!"

It's Our Blog and We'll Post What We Want To!

I got my own blogger drama!

Nothing like being scolded by the blogging community!

A Quiet Afternoon in my Kitchen... with 2 wrestling boys, a crying baby and a dog I'm constantly stepping over.

Thank you, Kami, for the fabulous marshmallow recipe! I made them and loved them!

I also made this! Yum, one of my favorite cakes.

Oh, and a big batch of Meatballs (that my boys are eating 1/2 hour before dinner).

Kami, thanks also for this!
-K- That was a random post!

The Men in my Life

You all know by now that I think Dave is Great. But...I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by several trusty fellows!

My Dad! The gratitude I feel for him seems immeasurable. "Lucky" just doesn't seem adequate. I am truly blessed to have the parents I have!

T-Bob! I Love my brother. He's decisive and ambitious.
He endured 4 Moms (My Mom + 3 older sisters) growing up! 'nuff Said!

Kyle! Kyle is everyone's friend. So easy to talk to, so easy to not talk with! Now, you'll see plenty of smiley pictures on his blog, so a goofy face you pull, a goofy face you get.

Bry! He's the strong silent type! He's one that I know I could turn to for anything!

Steve! No one has been more generous with us than Steve and his family! Steve is so cute with my kids and we love him for it!

Tag's Tree

We let Tag pick out our tree this year! It is this little Charlie Brown tree. Our star makes the top tip way over! It's perfect!

Anyway, like Lisa and my Mom, we buy the kids an ornament every year. Here are the ones I found this year! (They are not the least bit Christmasy?!?)

Tag and I did all the decorating and afterward he climbed up here for a better view of his work!
It's his tree, he decorated it and after...well...Sleep tight Tag!
(I LOVE sleeping pictures! Thank you Aunt Karolyn for the penguins!)

To Blog or Not to Blog

Someone, let's call her "Bubbles", told me that blogging is somewhat phony because we all post fairly positive things. Another "friend" calls it Self-promotion. After stewing about this, I've come to the conclusion that that is one of the reasons I LOVE BLOGGING!

Blogging gives me a reason to look for good in my life everyday. It shows me the good in my friends lives and has opened doors to this small world we live in by creating friendships with those whose paths we never would have crossed.

Thank you, my blogging friends, for inviting me further into your lives. And to those of you I've recently come to know...I look forward to getting to know you better!

My Man! part two

Tally and I went to lunch with my old High School Besties today (thanks girls once again for a gigglin' great time) and while we were out Dave and the boys build a HUGE snow fort in our backyard! They are so lucky to have him for a Dad!

I think the boys ate as much snow as they stacked!!

Meanwhile...Tally missed it all. We'll get you next year!
