First, and this is probably the most important reason, we are having internet problems. Everything has been so slow and it takes forever, I just don't have the patience to sit a wait.
Secondly, I have been at the beach. I left last Friday to go to Orange Beach with my mother-in-law for her birthday. As soon as our internet problems are fixed I will post some pics. It would take a decade if I tried to do it now.
Third, I have been reading in my spare time. Some friends of mine recommended that I start reading the Twilight series and now I am hooked! Some of you may have heard of them, they have gotten really popular and there has even been a movie made about the first one. Yes, they are about vampires and werewolves, but it is nothing like I thought it would be. I was very hesitant to read them because I do not like scary, gruesome things, but this is nothing like that. I have never read books so fast in order to find out what was going to happen next. It is good clean fun and I highly recommend them!
Well, I have got to go do laundry! This is something I usually do while the kids are taking a nap, but lately all I have been doing is reading!

I got up early this morning and started thinking about what I need and what I want. I made a list and I want to share it with you. These things are not in any order but some are more important than others. Some may even seem a little silly, but I think those little things are important also.
Here is my "What I Want" list:
To quit trying to have a house that is perfect and clean all the time.
To cook more and try new recipes. Cooking is one of my favorite things to do and I have quit.
To drink more hot chocolate. I forget how good it taste on a cold day!
To have a stronger faith!!! And to know that God is always in control and He wants what is best for me!
To stop worrying! To stop worrying! And let me say it again, TO STOP WORRYING! Especially about what other people think.
To light more candles. I love candles!
To read more and watch less TV.
To not be wasteful, especially with money. I want to be a better steward.
To, of course, eat healthier. To really care about what is going into my body.
And most importantly, to just be thankful of what the Lord has given me. TO COUNT MY BLESSINGS!
So there it is my list! And I know what some of you are thinking: My list has nothing about my husband and children on it. Well, actually they are in every detail of it. These are the things that I want that will help me be better. And if I am better to myself, I can be a better wife and mother to them!
Now, I am ready for 2009!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas! We did, it just seemed to be extra busy this year. I know for sure that having Christmas and Wyatt's birthday was part of the reason we were so busy. Now, school has started back and I think I will be able to get into some kind of routine again. I am going to do my best to keep this more updated.
This is a picture of Wyatt and Olivia enjoying Wyatt's favorite toy that he got for Christmas!
