Christmas / New Year's ...bring in the year 2009

WOW! It has been way too long for me write on my blog. Christmas, and New Year's has already gone and passed and we have started the year 2009.

We had a great christmas! It was more simple this year (since money is tight) but I felt so blessed for everything we were able to give and receive. I am excited for the sewing machine that I got. I want to be able to create things and so I am glad that my husband was able to give me such a great gift...I just know need to find a place for it :) We were blessed with being around our family for the holidays. We went over to my in-laws Christmas Eve and had so much food and played rock band on the wii....we had so much fun. Christmas day we went and saw Corey's Grandma Sommerville and Grandpa Neiswender...and ate left overs....mmmm.

New Year's Eve we went up to Ogden and played some games and went to lunch with the in-laws and Gavin's cousins. I got Gavin a monkey backpack that we can hold on to and he can't get away...he felt like such a big boy being able to walk around pushing his stroller while we played games. I was so glad that I bought this monkey...right before christmas I went to the store to get an item for christmas and they didn't have shopping carts...Gavin was tearing things off the the end of the trip he was crying and I was sweating and so ready to leave the store. I went home and called my mom and said "when did I get a toddler? last thing I remember he was a baby".

New Year's Eve night we were at my in-laws till 11:00 we had good food and played the rock band on the wii. I can't believe that we are already in the 2009 year. I hoping that this year is A LOT better than 2008! I like the feeling having a fresh start...and even though I haven't seen a whole lot change...I am having a better attitude and being more positive. I feel like things are going to get a whole lot better for us. I just have to be willing to get things done and have complete trust on the Lord. I will keep you posted on these things :)

One of my new goals was to get back into Weight Watchers. I have been doing a really good job. I went back to Weight Watchers on Saturday..I got weighed in and the meeting. I have 15 pounds to lose...which is not near as much as when I first started Weight Watchers. Once I am back down to my weight I won't have to pay any more since I am a life time member...and that ROCKS! I have been going to my church Monday, Wednesday, and Friday's to work out with some ladies in my ward....I really enjoy this since I get out and meeting other people and working out...which is making me feel so much better.

Well I am going to add some pictures from Christmas, New Year's Eve and random picture and then turning the computer over to my husband. Good night all!
