2012

This blog has been neglected. My sewing room, laundry pile, kitchen floors, and bathrooms have also taken a backseat to life...December was BUSY. In fact, I think it was almost too busy to really enjoy. I think that if we aren't careful, we can easily get consumed with obligations and the true meaning of advent and CHRISTmas go by the wayside.

We had a wonderful Christmas though and were able to see both sides of the family a couple of times. We went to see Matt's Wolfpack in the bowl game with our sweet friends. We were able to have some get-togethers with other wonderful friends and we enjoyed the week after Christmas while Matt was off work.

After all of this celebrating, we jumped into 2012 and I don't mean tip toe, we hopped in head first! I've been able to volunteer in Caroline's class and the twins have already had a play date. As a family, we are working on a few resolutions and are off to a good start (better, more involved behavior at Church, trying a new recipe each week, working out at least 3-4 days per week, and keeping our rooms more organized).

Here are a few December pictures that never made it to this blog:



Happy New Year!
