Happy New Year!

New years in Alaska is really anti-climatic! It gets dark here at three o'clock every day in the winter, and then watching the ball drop at eight o'clock on the east coast... you might as well go to bed!
We did stay up to ring in the new year... just barely though. (we are getting old)

As for New Years resolutions, I've decided that I am done setting myself up for failure. I had good intentions of sitting down and writing out every last detail of things I would start doing, things I would STOP eating and drinking... ect. And then I realized that my list is the same every year and I am still a procrastinator, I'm still chubby, I am still unorganized and I am still lazy. I think this year I just need to embrace my habits and maybe just learn to love myself the way I am.

I did get to the gym today, along with the rest of Anchorage. There were so many people with good intentions! I loved seeing them be able to check off one thing on their new TO DO list of 2008.

We had such a wonderful Christmas with our family in Maple Valley, Washington. All of my husband's siblings and spouses were there. It was the first time ALL the siblings were together in eight years I think. We really enjoyed seeing everyone and it was especially good to see the five little cousins all play together. Lucy had a blast, and she was inspired by the three cousins older than her to start walking! YAY!

Hey Megan, I'm so glad you left that comment on my blog. When I first got into blogging I searched and searched to see if you had one. Lucy looks darling, I think her and Tommy are just a couple days apart! I'm so excited to stay somewhat connected now! Love, Candice (Christensen) Cannon
