New years goals

So this year, I'm determined to get into shape, not that I'm feeling fat I just feel weak and I want to be able to run more than a mile without feeling totally worn out.  So goal #1:  Workout for at least 30 min 3 times a week, hopefully this is acheivable.  I plan on doing DDR3, running, doing the elliptical and of course an ab workout because the baby fat still lingers :)  Goal #2: Read my scriptures for 15 minutes everyday....come on who can't do that, but I'll admit I've been terrible lately about that but my plan is to wake up 15 minutes earlier and read.

Thats it!  I hope I haven't set myself up to fail :)  j/k I'm just trying to keep it simple and achievable.

Be prepared there is a lot in this post!  So, Grace had essentially 3 Christmases and by the end, she really got the opening presents thing down.  She got so much stuff!  She is feeling really spoiled right now. 
 Scaling the presents at Nana's
 With her new ball
 Enjoying the box
 With cousin Melody listening to Dad play the guitar
 Ahh...the wonder of Christmas
 Aunt Lacy, Preston and Melody
 I love the little tongue :)

 Trying out her new snuggle from Grandma
 In front of our tree with her Christmas dress on

 Opening her stocking- she loved this, when she was done she wanted us to put the things back in it so she could pull them out again





 She got a puzzle, this is a puzzle piece in her mouth that she sucks like a binky
 Long day
 This is what Craig did over his break--a puzzle!
 Snuggling with her new pillow pet

Women's conference

After a hectic day and a stressful week, I was able to go to women's conference tonight and listen to the Relief Society general presidency and President Uchtdorf speak.  I never know how much I need it until I'm there.  I loved President Uchtdorf's talk...don't look so hard for the golden ticket that you forget to enjoy the candy bar.  A valuable message that I will strive to apply in my own life when I'm so busy looking forward to the time when I don't have to work and that I can just stay home with my baby girl that I forget to relish today and enjoy what I've been given right now.  I also loved his apostolic testimony affirming that each of us is important and loved by the Lord.  A spiritual uplift for me and I'm looking forward to next weekend for more such messages.

Life gets crazy, and the blog never gets updated, but here is the latest cuteness!

 After Eating
 What a good helper!
 Loves the swing
 Dolly--she drags her around by the braids all the time
 My sister Ad went through the temple for her endowments, she is going on a mission to Brazil in December!!
Always snuggles with the dirty laundry--not sure why

Food storage update

So this weekend I went to the Emergency Essentials store to spend my $20 in free gift cards (see previous post) and I was able to get 3 #10 cans of quick oats, and 1 #10 can of barley (we don't eat barley that much so that one can is good for our 1 year food storage) and I also bought and Nalgene-esk water bottle. The total out of pocket i spent was: $5!  Woot woot!  I have a budget of $30/ month for food storage so this month I used only $15 of that budget becuase I spent $10 earlier in the month on a 20lb bag of rice.  I look forward to the case lot sales sure to happen this next month!
