Can we just talk about the fact that Christmas has come and gone?? What happened? It was Halloween yesterday..
My Littles really got into the Christmas spirit this year. Mason has told me repeatedly that he is sad Christmas is over, and trying to explain the idea of keeping our Christmas hope alive throughout the year confuses him, so I have just stuck to agreeing that yes, it is really sad.
We had an absolutely packed Christmas season. With our growing family, there are A LOT of people to see and accommodate, but it was a fun and faithful Christmas!
Now that we are approaching the New Year, I have been reflecting on this past year and I have to say that 2014 was pretty amazing. From changing my lifestyle, to my first Half Marathon, there were so many new and amazing experiences. I am really looking forward to 2015. I have recommitted to my healthy eating(look for new recipes coming soon!), I will be ordained as a Deacon in January and our family of 4 will grow to a family of five. There will be so many new experiences and challenges and I am so excited to see how this next year unfolds!
I am really horrible about keeping "resolutions", but I do have goals for this year.
1. Eat more mindfully.
2. Pray more mindfully.
3. Parent more mindfully.
4. Be a more mindful wife.
This year my goal is to be present in all things I do. As the years pass, time seems to move faster and faster and I don't want to be so busy just getting through that I miss all of the little moments.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
