Happy New Year

We have had such a fun last week. When my sister was down we had such a great time. She came with her husband and youngest, and the three boys stayed with grandma. We took them out to eat, shopping, and even down to Galveston. (Did you notice the absence of sand on the beach?) Dan and I also got to feed a little bit of our baby hunger with my ADORABLE niece:
And she is as good as she is cute.

We also made a trip out to San Antonio to do Sea World (we had to use our annual pass just one more time) and to Austin to visit family. It is always so fun to hang out with family, and we always stay up way too late.

Yet again, I have discovered another way that I am like my mom. I like beginnings: Mondays, Firsts, and January. I love this time to recommit and refocus myself on ways I want to improve. I have been thinking a lot lately about how I can truly become the person I want to be, and most importantly the person that God knows I can become. I hope to be able to continue the few changes/goals I have in mind, because I know that they will be pointing me in a good path. Good luck to all of you as you also make those resolutions!

PS for my local friends--Don't forget book club, this Thursday, 8:00 at Amanda's. Call me if you have questions!!

I was just catching up on all of your news. I hope this is a great year for you and Dan, full of happy memories and new surprises. We are so blessed to have the knowledge, peace, and hope that the Gospel is affords. Take care of yourselves!
