And yes, we're back. We had a good trip to LA. The kids totally enjoyed disneyland. It was especially fun to see Matthew's face when he saw Mater and Mcqueen, he was so excited. If you have ever seen a CARS fan, it's my little boy. Unfortunately Vanessa got sick, so we did spend a day at the hotel. My dh and his brother went to Universal Studios, which I was told, would not have been very much fun for the kids. So, that's okay. On Sunday, the weather was so nice that we just did not want to leave, so we went to the beach for a little while. Please don't ask me which beach we went to, we just drove. We didn't have an LA map, so we just went west. I believe it was somewhere around Santa Monica. Absolutely beautiful sand, and such beautiful waves coming in. Oh! It was so relaxing. So, my dh thought there should be some good seafood restaurant around (since we are at the beach), but we didn't find a good one. Coming into LA we had seen a Red Lobster near Magic Mountain, so that's were we had lunch. That was a good start for our trip home.

Now, to more serious rambling. So, the new year is a good time to make resolutions. I've not been good at keeping them, and have not really made any. But this year I am hoping for a NEW start. Last year was a hard year for us, and a new beginning sounds good. A fresh start, new hope. So I do want to make some resolutions, which will help for this year to be a better year. I also thought that it might be more effective if I write them down, not just make them in my mind. If you feel like keeping me accountable, please feel free to do so
1.- I want to read the Bible everyday. (Do need to find the right time to do this, when kids, and other things will not interrupt this time.
2.- I want to manage my time better. This includes not being a procrastinator
3.- I want to start a Journal. I also want to start my girls on one too.

I am already feeling a bit overwhelmed. These are big steps for me. As to my stamping here are my resolutions:
1.- Make something everyday (except weekends), instead of just looking at what you guys do.
2.- Keep my crafting more organized
3.- Make cards for everybody on my bday list.
This means that I should be stamping already, instead of rambling. Of our 9 nieces and nephews, 4 of them have a bday in January. So I have to get stamping to get their cards in the mail.

So, I hope you have a blessed 2008 and please keep on coming by. I love reading your comments.
