I definitely need these today. raining cats and dogs here. all the retention basins are flooded and tempting football playing teenage boys. I started classes this semester and they will keep me busy, busy, busy. I have literature and film (fun), travel writing (interesting), career development for english majors (informative) and writing a personal history (daunting). I was telling Dallas how much reading and writing i would be doing this semester and then remembered i am an english major. oops.

yes, I am a grandma! little Logan is a week old now and i enjoyed going back to Utah and helping take care of the new baby and brianne. although truth be told all i really did was try to hold logan as often as i could and dream up ways to sneak him home with me! he is darling and sweet and perfect and i will post pictures as soon as his momma and poppa have sent out their announcements and blogged about it themselves.

back to homework and fireplaces and visions of sweet rainboots...L

a rarity for me. two pages in one day. photos compliment of carson...L

a new year--not much for resolutions, although i have given some thought to certain things that i want to accomplish this year.

1) get rid of CDB--stat!
2) take a photo a week
3) create a layout a week
4) spend some one on one time with each of the girls
5) graduate from ASU this summer

those are some of my goals. I have some others that i started last year when we moved back to mesa that i plan on keeping up with--scriptures and prayers with the girls, FHE, personal scripture reading, temple once a month. I won't say that last year was an easy year--lots of changes in life for me and the girls--most of them positive but still not always easy. but the other night when all the girls were in bed and it was just me all alone sitting in my bed flipping through magazines and reading i was hit with an incredible feeling of peace and happiness. i wish all my friends and loved ones peace and happiness in the coming year...
