We enjoyed the New Year's festivities with some of our lovely family. We had a blast on New Year's Eve celebrating my cute niece's birthday, and then later hanging out with my sister and her family. New Year's Day we spent with the Murray's, and ate tons of super delicious food. We are still enjoying the leftovers! :)
As for us, here are a few resolutions:
  • Be Grateful- Make service a priority. Give back to our families and community.
  • Be Smart- Go to school and study scriptures more.
  • Be Involved- Work hard in our church callings.
  • Be Clean- Get better about putting our clothes away. Eat healthier and exercise to keep our bodies clean and healthy.
  • Be True- Pay tithing. Make time for things that truly matter in an eternal perspective.
  • Be Positive- Life is what you make it. Make it wonderful!
  • Be Humble- Ask for help when needed. Take responsibility for our actions, learn from our mistakes and short comings.
  • Be Still- Don't move for 30 seconds, each day. And...go to the temple more regularly.
  • Be Prayerful- Make family prayer a priority.

These are all such "DUH" resolutions. But it's always a good reminder, and always helps to write things down.

Happy 2012 everyone!!!!


  1. I have loved all of your recent posts. I never seem to comment anymore because I most often read blogs while I feed the baby. So here is the shortened version--Christmas looks so fun! Happy anniversary! Marriage is the best! And cool goals--you are inspiring me to be better. :)

  2. I LOVE you skirt in these pictures! Very cute. Hey we should hang out. Those are good resolutions which reminds me that I need to set knew goals too and some sort of action plan. Thanks for the post Norma.

  3. Those aren't duh goals. They are good. We all get so busy with life, sometimes we forget. Forget not the WHY! ;)

    Love ya! You're such an awesome sis!
