Happy Holidays and Happy New Year friends and fam!! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
Holiday Card '09
We LOVE receiving picture holiday cards and letters from friends (and Hubby's Aunt and Uncle) every year. It is so much fun to read a summary of their year and see pics of their fam. And so wonderful to see and hear more about friends who live far away now, who we don't get to see often enough!
We used Shutterfly annnnd because we picked them up at Target we saved over $.20/card from the Shutterfly site! I liked some of their other pretty backgrounds but I loved the labels on our card for this year. We also sent out a letter talking about all of our big happenings this year, what the little ones are doing, what Hubby and I have been up to, and what we are looking forward to doing next year. Here's our card from this year=) And thank you to some of my twitter friends for picking this one over the other one I showed you! This was the one I chose too=)!
Did NY's sneak up on anyone else?? It completely snuck up on me! What are you guys doing? So I haven't really been one to do New Year's Resolutions, because I was always told why make them because so many people don't actually follow through. But this year I'm doing it. I'm making some resolutions. Because really, they are things to strive for. So here we go, New Year's "They're Going To Happens" because they need to happen people!
 Stop letting what other people think get to me so much. I just waste too much energy and emotions worrying about what other people think. I run scenarios through my head waaaay too much, over and over, how should I say something, did I say something wrong, did I offend someone. I mean I will always be sensitive and think about those things, and continue being empathetic, but I can also be a little um lot healtier about it too=). If someone doesn't think I'm "cool" enough to be friends with, I'm not going to change who I am. I love to smile, be happy, and real, have fun w/ friends, (and be close to family), and want to keep that up!
 Lose these last 11-12 lbs! Oh boy=)
 Spend more time in God's word. Quiet time. Reading. Studying. It's a must for me!
 Get more involved in our new church (the church near our new house) like we were in our previous ones (and we're still going up there for some playgroups, MOPS, and gettogethers w/ friends=)). Make new friends around our new house. It's been a little tough after moving and having our sweet second baby, for various, some frustrating (not bc of any of my boys!), reasons. So I'm going to get over those frustrations and get out there and continue to meet new friends (we've already met some great ones) and keep in touch with old friends! Friends are so important and we love our dear friends who are true friends, and no matter how much time has passed, it's like none has passed at all. Those are wonderful friends! We are so excited to continue to grow those friendships even deeper in 2010!!
Happy New Year!!! We wish you an amazing, fulfilling, prosperous, God-driven, full of joy New Year!!
