Welcome 2013!  

We had a fantastic 2012.  At the beginning of the year Les was at home full time taking care of our girls, but that quickly changed when he accepted a job offer in early March at SupraNaturals.   We sold our home in Payson, moved to a rental and began the building process on our new home all in June.  Our beautiful home in Lehi was completed in September and we moved in Sept 15th.  We went fishing, camping and boating several times throughout the summer and had a lot of family fun together.  We took a trip to California for Thanksgiving.  We were able to visit Brandon & family, Les' uncle Lee and his family and even took a couple days for Disneyland.    Our gorgeous girls are now 1, 5, and 7 years old and are everything to us.  This past year has been good to us.

Les rang in the new year with the yearly snowmobile ride today.  I spent a little time cleaning up, playing with the girls and thinking about all of the things I hope to do this new year.  Some thoughts.....I have been doing more with my camera lately and would love to push myself harder to learn more about it.  These last 10 "mommy" lbs would be great to get rid of now that our family is complete.  I lost an amazing 16 lbs this past Jan-April to get back to my pre-Leah weight.  It has been pointed out to me this past month that I have not been making a habit of shopping for and taking time for myself.  How embarrassing, but I can do better and show my girls by example that taking personal time is healthy and rewarding. For some this next one is easy, but for me it is not.  I will go to the Temple....more than once.... this year.  It is very emotional for me since Quinn passed away so I avoid it.  Not good.  I can do better!

I am looking forward to Addison turning 8 in March and getting baptized.  I am also looking forward to turning 30 in March and pray that the next 30 are filled with more family and friends.  So much to do...better get started.
