Happy New Year

It's so hard to believe that 2011 is over.  What an event filled year for my family.  We had times of sorrow and times of great joy.  The early part of 2011 brought the loss of hubby's only living grandmother.  That leaves hubby and I down to 1 grandparent living, my grandmother.  Shortly after that,  I had to go on strict bed rest to help deliver a safe and healthy baby Samuel.  That lead to a couple different hardships; hit hard financially and household management.  It did bring forth a couple of big helpers in the house though.  On May 4,  baby Samuel arrived, three weeks early.  He was absolutely beautiful and thank the Lord, healthy.  I was able to get back to work and the finances came back around. 

A couple big milestones hit this year as well.  I am now officially the mother of a teenager.  Help me Lord!!!  He can be such a help and at the same time such a teenager!!  If you have one, you know what I mean.  My little mini-me is finally, completely potty trained!!!  That was an effort, let me tell you.  Hubby traded in his truck for a passenger van,  that's right 12 seat passenger van.  We have plenty of room now.  And my oldest daughter got her ears pierced.  They're all growing up way too fast.

2011 was a busy year and I don't expect 2012 to slow down much.  We're into another year of homeschooling, all my babies are growing up, vacation is planned, hopefully some changes in the work schedule, and some more extra curricular activities for the kiddos.  Busy, busy, busy!!!!

Of course what would the New Year be without New Year's resolutions??  My only resolution is to make the best of 2012!!  I ,of course, want to lose a great deal of weight and that will require exercise,  but those aren't resolutions.  Basically, no goals mean no failures!!  That makes for a GOOD Year!!

I hope you all have a very Happy and Blessed 2012!!

  1. Jennifer I am with you on the diet part. I have to get this baby weight off. My jeans don't fit right. My body is very different now that I had Matthew. It seems like all the weight went to my stomach. I am going to do weight watchers, I was doing it when I got pregnant. Anyway, I enjoy your blog. Hope all is going well.
