Welcome 2015

Hey, ya'll!  I can't believe that we're eleven days into the the new year, and I am just now getting to the blog.  On second thought, yeah,  I can.  I've been out of the habit of posting for a long time now.  I would love to commit to writing everyday...heck, every week would be an improvement!  Anyway, as much as I would love to make that commitment, I don't want to make any promises that I can't keep.

I do hope to do better about documenting our life and my thoughts.  Writing is just therapeutic for me, and it helps me process things, for example the sleep issues in our home.  I haven't written much about our "woes" in that area recently. I mentioned it a lot when Eli was little, and it helped me.  This time around, not so much.  I really need to put it all into words.  Maybe later.

So, back to blogging.  I suspect there will be more posts in the future, but not necessarily a lot of pictures.  We shall see.

I guess a little update on our life would be a good place to start.  After all the Christmas festivities, we spent a few days in Marion with Eric's parents celebrating the New Year.  This past week we tried to get back into the groove of school, and work, and our routine.  My parents came down this past weekend to watch Eli's first basketball game, and they took Ellie home with them today.  I'll miss her, but I'm looking forward to some MUCH NEEDED REST!

Other that 2015 is treating us well.  We booked our trip to DISNEY WORLD last week.  I can't wait!  We also have some fun celebrations planned as a family and an anniversary trip on the calendar.  Yay!

I love having things to look forward to, so let's make a little "highlight list," shall we?

There will also be trials and frustrations, and that is what scares me the most about thinking of the future.  The truth is, nothing is guaranteed.  We just have to take things one day at a time, and trust in the Lord for our strength and joy.

It's going to be a great year!
