New Year

So the New Year is here. I'm asked the same question every year and every year I look like I haven't thought about my response...because I really haven't " Carrie, what's your new years resolution?" HMMMM, well having a few weeks to think about it I would just say over all improvements, on everything. I feel like I can ALWAYS improve myself, my actions, my responses to other people's actions :) , improve how I fulfill my church calling, how I interact with my children, my home, my relationship with family, and my eating habits. That's enough to keep me busy for an entire year and then some.

Rylie has started the new year off in big girl UNDIES! WOOHOO!!!! This is a day that has been 42 months in the making.. She is such a lovie, I have thoroughly enjoyed this kid. She is so sweet and even tempered. She has a cute sense of humor and the list goes on and on. BUT she is the MOST independent , head-strong little thing around. She's been able to "go" on the potty for a year, at least. She just would not give me the satisfaction of it. It has been a long year. I am happy for her, I think she is really excited as well.

We have also had a few new additions in the new year. A fridge shiny and used but a really nice stainless steel french door with the freezer on the bottom..exciting, and a few new fish in the aquarium that Charly got from Santa.

We are really excited for our family this year. Becca and Troy added two beautiful little boys to their family, AND Kathy, Kathleen and Cami will all be adding new little ones with in the next three months or so. While I am super excited about this, I feel a little left out. Not that I need or want another but I guess I wish I had the option. BUT that's just how life goes and I am more that blessed to have the crew that I do. Wouldn't change a thing :)

Carrie, I love your resolutions. They sound very similar to mine--every.single.year. I also love your recent responses on my facebook statuses. You have made me smile several times! I understand what you described in the last paragraph about feeling left out. In fact, you put it so much better than I ever could. I do feel left out and wish I could join the club, but I can't. One of my other resolutions has been to be grateful for the many blessings that I do have and not get caught up in what I wish I had that others do. I have two beautiful boys who are my world. I have to be happy with that!
