So with a New Year vastly approaching, it is that time again to contemplate "New Year's Resolutions". I figure, why wait til 2012, let's start NOW!

My first resolution is to make a weekly meal plan and STICK TO IT!
So here is Week 1: 12/18-12/24
Sun: Pinto and Black Bean Nachos
Mon: Breakfast for Dinner (this is for Grandpa) Waffles and Bacon
Tue: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Tomato Soup (Safeway brand because this is all Lucas will eat)
Wed: Brats and Baked Potatoes (Luke's specialty)
Thur: Pizza and Salad
Fri: Meatloaf with Corn on the Cob
Sat: Crock Pot Chicken and Potato Soup (I have a lot of potatoes).

Things are going so well for our little family. We have just been suuuuuper busy. Between school, work, work, and work, getting ready for Christmas, and working in time for family and working out, there is little to no time to do things for fun, i.e. blogging, reading, spending time with friends (although I am trying really hard to fit this into my schedule, my sanity depends on it!)

We have been so blessed this year. Lucas has been working really hard trying to be SuperDad. Working at both THS and EAC. He is doing such a great job and his student's (usually) love him. We look forward to the break when we get to spend more time together as a family. Andie is playing basketball and doing really well in school. Although there are times she is a little too big for her britches, what else do I expect from an almost 11-year-old girl (boo hooing, where did my baby go?) Avery loves school, is loving learning how to read and is really just such a sweet and dare I say the calmest of my girlies. Erynn, is Erynn. She has her rotten days, but for the most part she just loves being with her sisters and is talking up a storm. As for myself, I have been working a ton, lots of babies are ringing out the year. I am so grateful for my job and all the people that it has brought into my life (literally).

Pray that everyone has a safe week and remember what's so important especially this time of year: FAMILY!
