Happy New Year

I know I am a little late writing this considering that it is already the 5th, almost 6th of January. But better late than never...so they say.

Do you do New Year resolutions? I try to sit down and act spiritual and try to come up with a verse for the year and several things to put down on a list, but do I keep them? And do I remember the verse for the entire year? Sadly no. But this year, we did things a little different. I didn't make a list, but Joel and I resolved to make a budget and to really stick to it. We got really detailed and specific, and we are really excited! You know how kids feel secure and safe with boundaries and rules, well that is how I feel. I know...funny isn't it. Although I have a limit to what I can spend it is kind of fun to be able to have a certain $ amount that I get to spend on anything I want and to think about it and dream about that one or 2 or maybe even three things that I can get with my money!

I did make a little list of things I wanted to improve on, but it just had a couple things on it. I decided that I wanted to try to be a happier person. The Lord gave the a verse in Job and how he chose to bless the Lord despite what had happened to him. And then I really want to work on not worrying so much! It really wears me out! So if you see me, remind me to not worry, and to be happy!

What are your new year's resolutions?

Along with this new year, my little baby is growins so much! He keeps us in stitches with all his funny faces, and he keeps our eyes peeled, not wanting to miss a single new thing that he does. He is in the beginning stages of crawling, so he gets up on his knees and rocks back and forth. Tonight he was in his bed and not really wanting to go to sleep so he starts messing around and he actually got up on his hands and toes! We were rolling! Sometimes I feel like I can't squeeze him hard enough, and I can't kiss him enough times to show him how much I love him. I feel like I am going to burst! We are truly blest and can't wait to see what the Lord is going to do in this little life!
