And a happy New Year, too.

Mike and I spent New Year's Eve dressed in our nautical best at our friends' annual NYE party. This year the theme was "Yacht Party". It was as fun as ever, and we got home just in time to ring in the new year with Mabel and Oliver, who were waiting up for us.

New Year's day found me on the family room floor, sorting legos, which gave me lots (and lots) of time to think about what I want to do differently in this brand new year. I decided that instead of saying that I want to do this, or I want to be better at that, I am taking the "decide what you want to be and go be it" route. So, in 2014, I only eat sugar on the weekends. I read my scriptures everyday. I don't rush bedtime.

And I will remember that every day is a fresh start, a chance to try harder and be better.

Here's to 2014!


  1. How weird is it that we have two of the same resolutions? And the last one is a little of the opposite---get stricter about bed times! :) Too funny. Happy New Year!

  2. I know you do it all. You two take such cute pictures and I am so glad you had a good time. Happy Happy New year to alll of you and give those kiddos an extra hug from me. Love you

  3. I love your goal for 2014! I say as long as I have breath in my body, it's a new day to try again.
    I've been through some challenging years and I have a few friends who are really struggling right now and I say "just keep trying!" thank goodness for another day :)

  4. Sugar is on my list too…but I am slowly weening my self. I can only have it every 3 days. Once I am good on that one i might switch to the weekend or maybe do white flour, white rice every 3 days… Flour tortillas are hard to give up.
