Goodbye and Hello!

Happy 2012!

I am a little behind on the whole "reflect and review 2011" post :) Sorry about that. It's over, we are living in a new year and I feel like last year just slipped through my hands so quickly!

We welcomed our twin boys in early 2011 and spent the next 4 or so months barely hanging on with sleepless nights, breastfeeding issues, colic, reflux, etc etc etc. We got into a rhythm and before we knew it we were living again! :)

We took our first trip as a family of 5....We had the babies dedicated on Mother's Day....

Jack celebrated his 3rd birthday

My Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, started and completed her chemo in 2011!!!

Jack started Preschool!

We went to Disneyland, my sister got married and I started running again.

My hubby did a CD project with our church, we made little trips to the coast and Eugene.

We cried, laughed, prayed and loved.

I read One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp and it rocked my world.

Some of the hardest moments of my life thus far happened in 2011. But I have never been more confident in who God is and what He is doing in my life.

I am ready to get goin' on 2012. Some things I want to focus on this year are:

*Losing all my baby weight and training for a half-marathon

* Keeping a cleaner and more organized household

* Specific times for social networking/blogging so that I don't get trapped at the computer when I shouldn't be, but also realizing it's a good tool and outlet for me.

* Starting up again in Youth Leadership with a small group!

* More family time

*Quiet time with the Lord on a consistent basis

SO yep, that's what I got so far! :) I am planning on a blog makeover soon, as soon as I can afford it. I am excited about those changes!

I want to be able to keep this blog updated with the boys and family happenings for my family and close friends, and also I want this to be an encouraging place for people and am excited about some posts that are already on my heart!

Happy New Year to you all!
