However, I do believe in fresh starts and I do believe that January 1st is a great time for re-evaluating and taking stock of all that has happened the prior year. It is a great time to really think about what is important and what can be put on the back burner. Even though I don't do the whole formal resolution thing I am pretty sure every January I make a mental list and prioritize the goals that I have for my family and myself.
I will share one of the goals that I have made for myself for 2010 and it is actually one that I have to stick to or I will be out a good chunk of cash. I will be running in my very first 1/2 Marathon on April 24th. I think back to who I was physically a year ago and I am amazed at how far I have come.
Also, for those of you who are wondering about my current boot camp status, I am still an addicted boot camper! January marks my 10th straight month of camp. I know I promised before and after pictures and they are still coming, but since I am so close to my one year boot camp anniversary I have decided to do the big reveal on that date in April.
Once we got to the house, it wasn't long before we were all opening gifts. This is one tradition that I absolutely love! Whether it is a homemade gift or something bought at a store, something needed or just a guilty pleasure, I love being able to give family members something they will enjoy.
After all the loot was unwrapped, the games began. We spent the afternoon playing cards and dominos, watching football, visiting and eating.
Uncle Mike is known for correctly guessing all his presents before he even opens them. This year Phil & Amy decided to trick Uncle Mike. In the box that included his real present they also put a bunch of Easton's underwear. The following 2 pictures are what ensued after opening the underwear:)
It is so great to be able to spend quality time with people we don't get to see very often. Thanks Organ Family for another great Christmas!
Hope everyone has a very happy and healthy new year!
Happy Birthday Honey!
