New Year's Resolutions!

The past few years I haven't made any resolutions but for some reason there is so much I want to accomplish this year so I'm making a list!

1. Read my devotion everyday
2. Learn to Crochet
3. Make sure I give out birthday cards this year
4. Cook at least one recipe a month from my new Paula Deen Cookbook
5. Work on couponing more
6. Blog more
7. Take more pictures
8. Accomplish all of my resolutions

I probably have more resolutions that I just can't think of right now!
2011 was a rough year for us and I can't wait to start a fresh and brand new year! I hope each one of you have a terrific new year! What are some of your New Year's resolutions?

P.S. If you missed my Christmas post it's below this one!

Christmas 2011

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! On Thursday night before Christmas Heath and I opened our gifts to each other. We never seem to have time on Christmas day so we just decided to do it when we want to! I got him a gun and he got me the new KINDLE FIRE!! I love it!

Excuse the terrible picture :(

Christmas Eve was spent at my in-laws! I have no pictures to post because all of my pictures have the new children they are adopting in them and they can't be posted until after they are officially adopted. Anyway, I got a laminator, which I really wanted so I can laminate things for my piano students. Heath got some thermal underwear and we each got a stocking filled with candy! We definitely enjoyed watching the kids open all of their presents.

Christmas morning we went to my parents for breakfast and to open gifts there. I got clothes, a case for my new kindle, Paula Deen Cookbook, a case that will play music from my IPhone, and we each got season passes to Silver Dollar City in Branson! Heath got a coffee pot that's like the Kuerig coffee pots, some coffee for it, pajamas, and the IPhone thing too! We had a wonderful morning.

After Christmas at my parents we headed to our church where we do Christmas with my Mom's aunt's and uncles. We eat lunch and play dirty Santa! This year I finally got these crochet angels that my Aunt Mildred makes! They are the gift everyone wants!

After that we headed to Heath's Grandparents! I always enjoy spending time with Heath's grandparents since I no longer have any that are alive.

We managed to make it home around 6 and then a couple of our friends came over for a little while and we played Phase 10!

Holli with all of her Christmas presents!

A few of my gifts!

The Angels my Aunt Mildred makes!

All in all it was a wonderful Christmas! I always enjoy being around our families!

I haven't posted since before Thanksgiving! How terrible of me! I hope I still have some loyal followers! A lot has been going on! I decorated my house for Christmas and I was going to post pics of all my decorations but just decided on the Christmas tree and stockings since I've waited so late!
I have some exciting news! I'm going to be an Aunt! My brother and sis-in-law are expecting a baby! I'm so excited for them! Also, my Husband is getting 3 new siblings! His parents are adopting 3 children and they are just terrific!

As you can see I've been pretty busy! Since I most likely won't be blogging again until after Christmas I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and I hope you have a wonderful day!
