One Little Word-Take 3

Hello all! 

To recap...

In 2010 I posted this. My word was "nurture". I loved it. I felt like it was the perfect word for where I was then.

In 2011 I posted this. My word was "commit". I wanted it to be an extension of the year before. It flowed perfectly. I feel like I was able to do the things that I wanted to do.

This year, I find myself building off of the word from last year again. I want to just focus a little more on the important things and release myself from others. I want to provide quality instead of quantity. I want to encourage my kids imaginations and do less "stuff".

I want them to know what really matters. 

We started this pre-Christmas and I want to continue the trend throughout the coming year. 

This year my word is 


I want to simplify everything. 

I feel so overwhelmed at times with schedules, events, and commitments.
Overwhelmed by the stuff, the house, the drama, the constant upkeep of the unnecessary.

I want to clear out, manage, and eliminate things that are not precious. Things that are not loved. 
I want to focus on the journey. I want to be present and undistracted.

Here is to the new year, 2012! Hopefully this new year will bring amazing experiences and lots of fond memories.

*Check out Ali's post here. She has lots of them going back years. This is the most recent.

Project Life- Week 51

Week 51. Just a hodge podge again. I think that most of these pictures are repeats from other posts.

The extras...
This week there are 5x7 prints, an 8x10 print, and a few mini ones for the little pockets.

Only one week to go!

 7 3/4 inches removed. She is still getting used to it, as am I. She is not interested in growing it out again but I definitely am. I can't get used to it.

A really bad picture of the boys in their matching Star Wars jammies from Gramma and Papa. 

Joe and the Ninja. :) Watch out. She will get you when you least expect it.

A rousing game of Just Dance on the Wii. We were all dying!

Christmas Morning Part 2

Uncle Matt helping Jake advance through a tough spot on his Indiana Jones game. 

Matthew... still feeling under the weather. There was a lot of sleeping going on. 

Lily, traveling through Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Hong Kong and London with her Barbie game. 

Ecstatically opening gifts from Auntie Christie and Uncle Matt.  

The little picture junkie hanging onto his lightsaber. 

Our little Lauren... 

Loving the sock monkeys from Gramma and Papa. 

They did a little bonding. Anytime someone has markers he is on them like white on rice.

 That obviously carried over to relaxing. The sick baby just wanted to cuddle with someone.

Hey now! 

We had a great dinner... again.
Prime rib, chicken, loaded mashed potatoes, rolls, salad, homemade ravioli. 
Yum!! It was a great meal.
