Family Date Day

We're making an attempt to get out and 'do' more on the weekends. Something that requires some sort of physical activity.and not necessarily having anything to do with softball or box bikes. I want the kids to e pertinence different things, explore nature and God's wonderful works.
Since it was so chilly and we'd had a busy weekend already, we decided to take the kids to skate at the skating rink in town. Thanks to their aunt/uncle/cousins, they have their own brand new rollerblades. Both kids did awesome. They were so proud to not use the assistance contraption....that looked like a walker.
If was so fun to be back on skates again. Trey and I both expected to bust our rear ends a time or two, but we did pretty well at staying on our feet. It was such a treat to be unplugged and just enjoy our kids.
The few pictures I took aren't great because they're off of my phone. You can still get the jist though..

New Years 'not' resolutions

It's a new year. And I'm not really a resolution type of girl. Of course I would LOVE to get in better shape, run again. I have some things up my sleeve that I'm trying to figure out.
I'm not writing things out. I'm not declaring my New Years Resolutions.
This year, I want to be present. in my family. in the Word.
I want to do things for me, that I want to do.
Mostly, I want to invest all that I can in these two little people, their hearts, minds and souls.

Farewell 2012


Hello 2013!

I am thankful to have rung in the new year with some of our greatest friends. We snuggled their sweet new baby, surrounded by my two kiddos and their toys. The wee hours of the new year were spent snuggling my girl and trying to convincee her that she, in fact, did not need to go find the puppy. I was woken up this morning next to the man I love, by our sweet little people. We will spend today with our friends and family.

2012 was a fun year. We are excitedly looking forward to 2013!!!
