welcome 2014

Well, it is new year's eve 2013 and I am sitting on the couch and thinking about my goals for the year to come. But first I want to acknowledge how great my year was. I have another beautiful baby who is healthy and happy. I ran 2 half marathons and pr'ed one. I am sure there is more but I am drawing a blank right now.

 As for 2014 there are a couple areas in my life that I want to include.

- run Hood to coast in August (already planned).
- run a sub 30 min 5k
- run at least 1 half marathon this year. I would love to run another marathon but I just don't think I have the time to commit to proper training.

- read the bible every day. At least 1 verse.

- do swim lessons with F and W
- continue with music class at least 1x/ month hopefully close to weekly
- go hiking 1x/month
- go camping with the whole family

- try to have a positive attitude especially at work.
- learn to use my camera properly and take lots of pictures
- get back into pre-baby shape
- finish p90x then maybe start again ;)

I will add to it as the year goes on. I pretty much just want to be a better person, a good mom, and great friend.  I hope everyone is staying safe tonight. See you in 2014.

Hello All!!

So, I know that it has been a LONG time. But I feel that it is time to start blogging again. Just to keep track of everything going on. There has been a lot going on.
1) We moved into our home a week before Christmas.
2) Hosted Christmas - had the Hampton clan over, cousins included.
3) Had Wally's parents and sister, and her two little ones the weekend after christmas.

So things have finally settled down. And as you can imagine with all the craziness I have not had time to fully unpack. There were boxes everywhere that just got moved to the basement to make things "presentable". We have also inherited lots from Wally's grandfather "Pop" so we have been sorting through that stuff as well as our own.

We didn't have much time to go get a christmas tree but we were able to walk through the woods behind Pop's house the weekend before. This is Faelyn in from of the tree that we cut down.

Christmas morning :) She had a great time.

 This was New Year's Eve - We were undecorating the tree and just hanging out.

 New Year's Day : we went sledding down the driveway and in the backyard. This little girl loves the outdoors and cold weather just like her daddy. And she looks pretty cute in that purple hat and bear suit.

 One of my new year's resolutions is to try and keep this going. Keep friends and family updated with pictures on what is going on in our lives. Another post on New Year's Resolutions to come soon.
