Filling the Pages...

2013
Amazing,
filled with blessings.
 
I'm so busy planning for the new year that I hadn't stopped to think about the year we are leaving behind.
 
The pages of this chapter have all been turned.
 
So I'm writing like mad.
 
Planning for our family for the new year.
 
I've started my daily checklists.
 
And plan to spend part of each day reading
 and playing games with the kids.
 
 
I've picked out Bible Verses for each child.
 
 
And of course...I'm wearing my new Fitbit,
 
 
buying goodies like this,
 
 
and eating meals like this.
 
 
Yes, it is gonna be a good year.
 
2014 we are ready to write your story
& fill your pages with sweet memories and adventures.
 
The only thing that could make the new year
better is if I could afford a cleaning lady. 
But then Kit would be sad cause
I then I wouldn't need him to vaccuum.
 
 
Hey, he turned 1 two weeks ago,
he's not a baby anymore,
& he dropped the cereal anyway :)
 
So, even though tonight I'm staying in since Annie is sick,
I'm having a good time reflecting on last year,
planning for the new,
 and finishing my checklist for the day :)
 
 
 
Happy New Year friends! 
It's been a crazy week but I'll be by to visit next week I promise!

Your so organized, I'm so impressed. I use to be and I have to get back to that because clutter happens and it weights me down. Wishing you and your family all the best in 2104. I love eating healthy, that is the best thing I have done for myself!

I just lost it when I saw Kit with the vaccuum!! Way too cute! The look on his face is priceless! Thanks for sharing yourself, your family, your faith...and those beautiful babies! You made my 2013 better and I look forward to this new year!

For the past few years I have made a yearbook filled with tidbits from my blog and personal journals ~ For the first time in 5 years, I am skipping the year 2013. I am thankful for the blessing that we had.. but it was such a funky year that I barely journaled, blogged or took photos. I was ready for 2014 months ago ~ and I am entering this year with hope and love ~ I'm so excited for this fresh pallet!

Happy New Year!!!!

Aw honey I loved reading this post. Your such a sweetheart and I love you dearly.
Hard to believe we are weeks into the New Year already and I have not been by to wish you a very Happy New Year.
There is so much I would love to say to you right now but will sit down and write you a letter.
Your sweet card arrived and every day I look at it wishing I could hold all of your sweet babies who are growing up way to fast for us both.
I am so happy you have this blog to document so much of their lives. Oh how I wish there had been blogging when mine were growing up.
My computer is so slow I can't really blog much any more. I thought Santa was bringing me one but I guess he did not get my letter so now I have to buy one myself.
I am dying to do a post about my Christi. She is getting married this year to a very sweet Christian man and I could not be happier. Hopefully I can get a post done with a picture soon.
I caught up with you tonight and have missed you terribly.
Your always in my thoughts and prayers.
Love
Maggie
