If I put it out there...

maybe I will be more accountable.... I have been meaning to blog about this for a few weeks. We have some pretty lofty goals for the year this year. I thought I would share mine with you! 1. Read 13 books. I am have currently finished one. And I am working on the second. 2. Less electronic time. This goes hand in hand with number one. We have a new reading/relaxing area in our bedroom. We are shooting for 3 nights a week with no computers, ipads, etc. Its not going too well. 3. Do something new each month. With the kids or for myself. This month we are going to the new aquarium. Actually this Thursday. 4. Incorporate more vegetarian meals. I am on the hunt for some good ones. If you have any suggestions send them my way! 5. Lose 30 lbs. So far I am down about 8. So that's a pretty good start. The baby weight didn't come off with Logan like it did Paige. 6.Take 5 trips. So far we have 4 planned. So that's not too bad. California/Arizona, Omaha, Colorado, and the Bahamas. I also have 2 girls only trips planned! 7. Run 2 5ks. I know they are not big races. But they are big for me. Because I hate running. 8. Finish some picture books! 9. Oh and blog more. Obviously... I think I have a few more. But I can't think of them off the top of my head. Do you have any goals? If so what are they?

Christmas was a little different this year. It was the first time we didn't travel back to visit my parents. They came here with my Granny. It was a good time. We decorated cookies, attended a Christmas Eve service, cooked a traditional meal. And it seems we opened presents for days. Here are a few pictures from the Holidays.
