Flu bug and LIST

I promised pictures and more blogs and THEN the flu bug hit us hard...first daddy and then Saylor. SO...I will leave you with my LIST for 2013. I call it a list, because I dont' like the word resolution because then you can FAIL..big time. So if its a list of things I would LIKE to work on, then I might do it. Simple things MORE....less stress. Take it all in...and enjoy the ride because it can't last forever. BUT these are things myself and others forget a lot. So I will read this list EVERY morning to remind myself of what I have and ask what I can do better!

2013: Goals and Hopes

*Be with God more, pray more, and be a better Godly women. Read my daily prayer book

*Teach Tucker more about God. Make it a routine to brush teeth then pray bedside. Also pray at the dinner table and for people who are sick and hurt ( we do all these, but its needs to be a HAVE to)

*Read more with my kids more. Teach them more. Work puzzles and mind games instead of TV games.

*Eat better….make the family eat better and healthier. Veggies, fruits and less sugar

*Exercise…play with the kids more in an exercising way for us all. And exercise for myself.

*Be kinder and gentler. Let people know I care and lend more hands. Remember people’s feelings and try to console. BE THE BETTER person. Smile at others.

*SMILE more and less stress

*Be the best wife, remind my husband how important he is everyday and in every way. Surprise him more.

*Let my kids know how much I love them..ALL the time. Care less about the house, and make more memories playing ( this is a good one, I need to think this all the time....leave those fingerprints for later)

*Go on ONE family adventure every month. Picnics, camping outside, parks, adventures for the day!

*Take a date night ONCE every 6 weeks with my husband. (hey, hubby is busy and we like friend time)

*Be honest..all the time.

*Send little text or cards often to remind people how I feel about them!

There it is...first thing is first.. GOD! I think if I remember him every morning, the rest should come easy :)

I'm BACK!!!!

No, this is serious. I have to keep documenting my life. I do scrapbooks for the kids but that can't possibly hold ALL of our doings and be up to date!!!

I print these blogs off in a book so my kids and grand kids can laugh at me one day. I do this for my own pure humiliation...

So here is an UP to DATE list of things....

1. Christmas was excellent. I am gets better and better each and every year. The more my kids understand, the better it gets. And not to mention I get a bit spoiled along the way TOO. I baked for 5 days and we had stuff coming out of our EARS! I mean I just now through away all the candy....yes there was tons. We celebrated 5 different times for Christmas with our family....I EAT IT UP!!! I miss Christmas music already :)

2. When December 26th is hear...I want to rip all Christmas down and get back to normal. My OCD kicks in and I am done with it. Time to reorganize and move on!!! yep, weird like that...

3. I can't believe Saylor Kate is already one. We celebrated big always!

4. I had lots of time off in December and it was wonderful. I do believe it is soooo worth not doing big vacations in the summer to have time to soak in the holidays :) I am going to save my vacation days more often.

5. Tucker is in to the terrible 3's. He is pushing us...but then he has the most tender loving heart and says he is sorry and cries at the drop of a hat! Its a lose, lose situation for parenting him.

6. Saylor Kate has JUST as tender as a heart has Tucker does. Dad is wrapped around her fingers to say the least!!

7. I am ready for 2013....I want to do big things. This is a whole nother post...have to line my ducks up first.

8. I am kinda over winter...yep after we have christmas I am ready for 90 degree weather and our pool.

9. I am kinda shocked at how well my kids get along...I will kick myself for this comment later.

10. I have had some really good times with great friends lately...thankful for ALL of ya'll!!!

I am posting our pictures this week..and more random things..

Here is to 2013 and MORE blogging
