I think I found my resolution....

So as this crap year comes to an end, (and just trust me, this has been a crap year, it's been one of those years when I will go to church that last Sunday of 2012 and sing that horrid song about the year dying, I'm going to be standing up and screaming.... "Die Year Die!"), I have decided on my new years resolutions.

FIRST: A couple of weeks ago, I was in a store with my wonderful husband and one of the workers came up to me and said, "That shirt looks really great on you!".  It was a pretty cute guy and my gay-dar was not going off either!  I felt his compliment was genuine and just down right nice. It made my night (well, and the fact that I was out on a date with my own hottie was icing on the cake:)  So it got me thinking, I should compliment people more.  And not just friends or family but random compliments to people.  I'm always out and about running errands through out the day, so my FIRST resolution is to compliment someone at least once a day, that is if I leave the house that day :)  I see nothing wrong with this one, I can only see it as something that will make me and others happy... this one makes me excited.  The next one does not.

SECOND:  So as I was looking at some old posts on my blog, I noticed something.  Here are my posting stats:
2008: 112 posts
2009: 74 posts
2010: 63 posts
2011: 44 posts
And for this year, I am on track to having about 25 posts.  The numbers are embarrassing.   I really have given up all hope on my own scrap booking and have replaced it with the blog.  But my blogging skills have been less than impressive.  So, resolution number 2.... BLOG MORE!!  My goal is to blog once a week.  This one I can see going in the pooper.....buuuuut, I figure I would vocalize it so you all can call me out on it when I have not been good!

And now here is what any one ever cares about. Pictures:

I was put in as Soccer Mom this year and was in charge of the end of season game.  We met at a park and had pizza, treats, and coach handed out trophies. We really do love Cohen's soccer coach.  He is so good with the kids and Cohen adores him. It was crazy windy that day and blew over half of my cupcakes I had made all over the ground.  But none the less, the kids had a blast!

 Cohen's soccer team.
 Carter loved holding Cohen's trophie and would not let go of it the whole time!   
 Don't you just love the dirt mustache on Jace?


Can you tell it was super windy?  This other little kid, Aiden, is in our ward.

This Week Sucks.

This week has been horrid!  Let me count the ways:
Monday: Justin went in for a second surgery because his stitches opened up too early and there was a big hole in his mouth.  Well, when they went in there, they saw that the bone graft he got a month earlier, did not work.... AGAIN!!!!  So they did another one.  I think this is his 5th bone graft, we have lost count.
Tuesday:  Well, we all know what happened on Tuesday, but the other thing that happened... the phone I was borrowing from my sister because mine dropped in the pooper, was stolen.  That's right, a brand new iphone that I was borrowing!
Wednesday:  I totally missed my Relief Society meeting that I had a pretty big part in.  We don't meet very often so I was so mad that I missed it because I had a TON of things to go over.  (I think the reminder for it was in the phone that was stolen).
Thursday:  This day does not even exist to me any more.
Friday:  I'm just waiting.  I'll probably get a ticket today.  I'm just going to count on it.
I'm ready for this week to be over.
The only thing keeping me sane:






I know I post a lot of this look, but it has to make you smile, right?!

Love these!

Here are a few things I wanted to save on my blog that I enjoyed coming out of this disappointing election:












So if you have been fearful of our future, look to His prophets and those who have gone on before, they are inspired and I have faith we will all be ok.
