Do you make resolutions?

I don't normally. But I did two years ago, and it's interesting to me that many of my resolutions for 2008 are things that are still important to me and high on my list as we are about to enter 2010. I'm happy to report, though, that I have been doing many of these... but not all - I need something to reach for, right?? ;-) Although this layout is two years old now, I still love it, and I love the reminder to keep striving to be a better me. (If you'd like to read what my resolutions were, you can click on the layout to see it enlarged.)

As promised, I wanted to share some recent photos of what we've been up to. These are some of the pics that were taken during our blizzard last weekend when we got 23 inches of snow!
And some of Chloe at her b-day party last week:
(Noah was too busy hanging with his friends to join in on the family shot here ;-)
Well, my friends, I will not be around for the next few days, so I want to wish you all a VERY happy New Year! May 2010 be kind to you all!!

Haha loved the laundry-resolution! And yes - several if not all of these should be ongoing resolutions - it´s good with constant, gentle reminders imo :) *hugs* :) (ps...and yeah, I wrote that photopost in Norwegian cause my mom always bugs me about having to use google translator to read my blog..so figured Id make her happy for once - it´s Christmas after all! :D :D)

Oh I adore the pics of the snow and the children....and YAY it is all gone...but we are in for more...but just a few inches!!!

The LO is PERFECT....I do not do resolutions...to be pressure and setting myself up for failure...but I do have a journal where I jot down some ideas for the coming year and go back to check it each month!!!

Wishing you and your family a Very Happy New Year....filled with good health....much happiness and tons of love!!!

xoxo

Awe! Love all of the pics! I actually really like picking new year resolutions... I love that the year is brand new and we are starting a new decade - I'm working on a LO for it - I'm thinking it will be cool to look back on in the future!

Love the pictures of the kiddos, they are so doggone cute!
It is really cool up here, but not to much snow, I will let you have it where you are. I am not much of a Winter person anymore, I hate the cold....

Beautiful layouts as always, you rock lady!!
