Hmmm....Something New

Ok everyone...Christmas is over and the next holiday on the loom is New Years. Often that brings to mind resolutions...and for me the ones that usually end up getting broken or forgotten. So this year I wanted to try something new. I want to see what kind of "different" new years resolutions we can all come up with that won't include losing those 10lbs gained over the weeks of festive Christmas goodies that were constantly beckoning us to eat them. Or going to the gym or saving money, you get the drift. For fun lets just set the bar a little lower and enjoy our new year resolves.

*So mine really should be the 10 lbs thing...but here goes

---As the night owl that I am, I vow to sleep like I've never slept

So friends, family, talk to me...make me smile, I need some new year cheer.
Be creative and remember nothing like the usual.

One of the more romantic settings we've ever been in. Wow, have we already experienced 9 years of marital bliss?!? Time really does fly. I wanted to wish my partner, companion, and my best friend a very Happy Anniversary. So much has happened since that special day we were sealed in the Orlando Temple for Time and Eternity. I remember looking into your eyes that day and seeing forever. I listened to the words our sealer spoke and remembered thinking I couldn't be any happier. It definitely hasn't been an easy road at all times and yet those times I've felt have strengthened our relationship even more.
I've really been blessed to be staying with family. In fact today I was able to go with my parents again to the Temple. As I sat outside the Temple taking everything in I was remembering what happened and the feelings we felt on that day. It was so special to be there today and to think of my wonderful husband (of 9 years).
So what should we do for #10? Hawaii??
Happy Anniversary Sweetheart! I miss you!

Our little "Fish"er

Seems like an intersting post in December but just the other day I took off all floatation devices on Cora and she swam for the first time in my parents pool without any help from family or floats. The only part of the pool she can stand in and touch are the stairs. She actually swam from one end of the pool to the other into the 8ft deep water. I'm sure she was ready to do this before I took off her "muscles" but I think I was more scared to do it then she was. I am so proud of Cora not only for her new found swimming ability but for her courage especially after Darryl left to go back to Iraq. She is always hugging Shay and telling her about Daddy. She always wants to say all of the meal prayers and never forgets to say something special about her Dad. She is also quite the singer. She not only got to be in one Primary Program this year but my parents ward is having theirs tomorrow and I can't wait to see her doing one of the things she enjoys most which is singing. You are getting to be such a big girl Cora. Mommy and Daddy love you so much and are so proud of you!
