Christmas fun...

I actually scrapped a page! It's been ages since I scrapped and it felt so good to work on this the last few days. And it is even from Christmas so that is an even bigger accomplishment for me. :)


Cameron is so adorable these days. Whenever I give him something he says "thank you Mommy." Melts a mommie's heart. :) Now if I could get him to stop the biting and scratching he has started lately all would be well again. He gets so excited and just goes wild. We have been through this once before so hoping this time is short lived now that he understands better. And at least when he does do something he isn't supposed to you can tell him to say "sorry" and he will go and tell whoever it is he did it to (usually myself or Daddy) that he is sorry. They are growing up WAY too fast.

Been thinking of goals for 2009. I guess I have some of the usual, lose weight or eat more healthy is more what I want. I have a terrible sweet tooth and must get that under control. But trying to figure out what it is I want to accomplish in 2009. I have decided to start working on a preschool kind of thing with the boys. They are such little sponges and I know now is the time to start. They love to read and so this would be a good extension. I found a decent curriculum and have started working on putting the first few weeks things together. It's been kind of fun. Trying to figure out a way to make a board that I can just interchange things each week for the lessons. May have to head over to the teachers store and see what kind of things they have. Thought of doing a posterboard each week but that just seems like such a waste of paper to me. So I need to find a chalk board that is also magnetic...may end up making something instead. Hubby came up with the idea of just painting our basement walls in chalkboard paint. Don't think I want chalkboard green walls through the entire thing. :) I am sure we will come up with something. Lots of little projects for this year already in my head and on my "list" to do.

Oh! I actually started putting together a binder with all my home information. Lists of telephone numbers, budget, weekly menus, project ideas/lists, etc. It is coming together nicely. I think this will be a HUGE help for me as I am such a list kind of person. I also have a goal this year of getting the house all organzied and together. We have spent so much time moving and stuff that I have just given myself this next year to go room by room and clean out (which some rooms don't need much at all) and decorate. Should be fun and I am looking forward to it. I just need to remember to take before and after photos!

Wow, you have some great goals. It makes me excited to get mine down on paper. Have you considered a magnetic white board? I love white boards and they're so much more versatile (and less messy) than chalkboards.
