So this year was a tough one for me.  My aunt passed away with cancer in February and my husband struggled with finding a job for most of the year.  I gained a ton of weight from all the stress.  Thank heavens we have our little Will to brighten our lives!  We are looking forward to a better year in 2015!  

Here's some pics from 2014.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wizard

After a very long delay ... Here is a new post from me!  We went to a Halloween party tonight.  It was fun!  We got to dress up!  Will was a lion!  He loved being a lion!  I drew on his face and when I put on his costume he laughed and laughed. He really is the cutest little guy around.  I don't have money but I do have a handsome husband who loves me and an adorable son!  Check out our pics from tonight!

Stubborn, strong willed, that's my son

I have loved the name William for the longest time. It's a great name. It's classic and royal. Never in a million years would it mean that if a boy was named Will he would be strong willed. Well apparently there is a lot in a name.

My son is the strongest willed, most stubborn little person I have ever met. He is also adorable, hilarious and fun. I think the reason he is so dang cute is so people(namely me) can love him and overlook his stubborn ways.

An example of this stubborn or strong willed streak happened tonight. We went to my sisters house. She lives over 45 minutes away from us. We left her house at 8:40 which is around William's bedtime. I was so sure that William would fall asleep on the drive home, that I gave him a bath at Tiffany's and got him ready for bed before we left.

To our dismay he was bright eyed and bushy tailed at 9:30 pm when we pulled into our complex. From then until 11:55 pm I read stories to him, sang to him, rocked him, fed him and even watched movies with him. Still after all that he was still awake! I had had it so we packed William up in our car and went for a ride. After 10 minutes William was sound asleep.

Now the question is will William sleep all night? He's almost 18 months old, so he should be able to sleep through the night, however William has woken up several times a night all week.
I guess we will find out if he sleeps all night soon.

My New Year's Resolutions for 2013

1. Lose 15 pounds to reach my ideal weight. I will do this by exercising and going to weight watchers.

2. Go to the temple 4 times this year. I know this seems pretty weak but it's hard for me to leave William for 8 hours and that's how long it takes to go to the temple and back

3. Be content with what I have. Live in the moment and enjoy my blessings.

4. Buy a house no matter how small, William needs a yard to play in and we need the responsibility.

5. Surround myself with those who love me and ignore the people who don't care about me. I have wasted too much time trying to please people and I am giving up on certain relationships in my life. If I'm not wanted in people's lives I will stay far away from them even if they're family. I can't make everybody like me and I cannot waste anymore time trying too.

5. Be a better wife. Have more patience with my husband as he grows in his career. Believe there are better days ahead and one day we will look back on the days we struggled and be grateful for them.

6. Be a better mom. Play with my son more and find cool places to take him. Being a mother is the greatest blessing I have ever received. The fact that it took so long to finally get my darling baby makes it all the more fantastic!

Those are my resolutions for 2013. I wrote them on my blog with the hope that putting them in writing and for my few followers to see will help me accomplish all of my resolutions.

Happy New Year!
