I thought this time I'd post some family pics and New Yearsy thoughts. I was reading a blog earlier and it said you're supposed to pick a word for the year, that would inspire you to improve something in your life. The first word that popped into my head, probably because I was thinking about it last night, was "enough." Not my usual "enough" as in "It's a good enough thing," but is what I'm doing enough. Not to be negative, I just feel like it's time to step things up a notch. Is the attention I'm giving my kids enough? Am I teaching them (by word AND example) enough? Am I signing up or offering to volunteer when I can? Am I doing things, spiritually speaking, that I know I'm supposed to do but have let slip? I hope I keep this word in my head when I'm tempted to be lazy instead of taking opportunities to be what I should be. And I guess this could extend to, "That's enough ice cream, thank you." The end.
Here are some Christmas and miscellaneous pics, just for fun! I tried to give some of them a retro look, but I'm not sure I fully succeeded.
