Happy New Year!!! {2013}

Well, it has been a really long time since I blogged.  But it is a new year and my goal is to keep it up among other things.  The past year went by so fast that I feel like I don't remember what has happened?! I hope that in keeping up with this blog it will help this old brain of mine to remember the good and bad things that have happened. 

Last year we went on a family vacation, visited with family and friends and even gained a new member, Liam Thomas.  I had Logan, Donald and myself create new years resolutions and here they are:
Logan~ be a good brother, love my mom & dad, play more with my mom, dad, and brother.
Donald~ lose weight and stay fit
Kristin~ lose the last of the baby weight, participate in some races/marathons, write in my journal more often, cook more, and keep up on this blog.

As a family we came up with these resolutions:
have FHE more regularly, pray more as a family, and do monthly activities/dates.

On New Years Eve, we spent it at home... actually at my in-laws but it was simple.  We played apples to apples Disney edition with the kids, had Tommy's for dinner, watched the countdown on tv and then at midnight went outside and banged on pots and pans with wooden spoons.  The kids loved it.  Then we toasted eachother with some sparkling cider and then headed home.  I was exhausted and woke up on New Years day feeling like blahhhh. So I headed over to the urgent care to make sure that I don't have a sinus infection, only to be turned away because they were closed!  So those antibiotics will have to wait until the 2nd of January.  We just have been sitting around all day, watching football and resting.  So for now, I leave to have dinner with my boys and toast with some more yummy sparkling cider to a great new year!
