2013 Goal

So my goal for 2013 is to get back into blogging.  It is already January 14 and I have yet to start my goal, but I heard on the radio the other day that most people quit their goal within the first 5 days of the new year. I figure this way that won't happen to me. :)

I haven't blogged since May 2012.
A lot has happened since then, so I should have lots to blog about.

The last time I blogged we were moving out of our old house.
We are now fairly settled in our new house.  Lots of painting, a new kitchen, fresh carpet 
and many hands helping later, we are fairly settled.  There is still plenty to do, 
but I like that.  I like dreaming up ideas- not sure my husband likes that- but I do. 

When we moved, Andrew was about 6 months old.
He is now a very busy, fast walking almost 14 month old boy.

Since I last blogged, we have traveled to Canada (of course), 
South Carolina, Florida and Chicago.

I also started a new job as a 3 day kindergarten teacher. 

So 2013....let's get documenting!

Goodbye house..

Last month we said goodbye to our first house.  
Although I'm excited for our new place to live, I'm a little sad to leave our first place.

There were a lot of "firsts" and good memories in that house. 

 It was the first house that we had friends over to.

  It was the first house that we decorated together and spent hours picking out perfect couches and chairs.  
It also was the first house that we argued in as a married couple.  
Which happened to be about buying chairs. :)

It was the first house that we shared with Winston who often seemed to take up 
more of the house than we did.

It was the first house that we hung our stockings up over the fireplace to celebrate Christmas together.

It was the first house that we brought Andrew home from the hospital to.

It was the first house that we loved.

 Goodbye house...
