New Year's Resolutions

1-Take a trip without the kids.

Check! We are going to Mexico in March for free! Yay! Cody has a business credit card that he uses to order supplies and pay for lab fees that accumulates points you can trade in for hotels, flights, etc. We have enough points from the 2009 expenses to pay for not only our stay, but my sister and her husband are coming too and we have points to pay for their hotel as well!

2- Get pregnant.

Check! Baby #4 is arriving mid-July! We're excited, possibly a bit crazy, but excited for our new arrival. I'm 13 weeks right now and feeling pretty good. Heather, my sister, is due 4 weeks before me, so our trip to Mexico will be our Baby Moon. : ) And for those of you figuring out how far apart our kids are - yes they are close, but we like em that way! Tucker and Aubrey are 18 months apart, Aubrey and Cole are 22 months and Cole and this baby will be 18 months.

3- Try a new recipe every week.

I do not have a passion for cooking, so in hopes to instill some love and acquire new recipes our family enjoys, I'm going to try something new every week. I have a ton of cookbooks so that shouldn't be too hard. If you have great recipes that you want to share, send them over!

4- Be in my dad's piano recital in May.

We bought a used piano from my Mom's friend right after Cole was born last year. My dad is amazing at the piano, it's what he does for a living, and sadly none of us kids took after him. I've been told I had the most potential, so I'm going to start practicing and memorizing and I plan to be in his recital this spring. It's been more than 12 years since I was in the last one, so we'll see how it goes.

Well, that's it for now. I have other goals, but none quite as exciting as goal number 2!

Lisa!! Yay for another baby!! That's awesome! You are better than me... my goals this year include being more patient with my kids; I really want another one, but I'm too grumpy of a mom to handle it just yet. You are so amazing!

Congratulations! Now I see why your friend wrote that you were running out of room at your kitchen table. ;)
Mexico sounds fun and what is better than a free trip?
Congratulations again.
