Happy 2011!

I'm not so much into resolutions, but I'm definitely hoping to be a better blogger this year. Part of the reason is entirely selfish though...I've been slowly re-arranging several rooms of the house. Possibly the most cluttered space is my scraproom (eek!). I've got paper and embellishments all over the place. So, I'm challenging myself to create 100 projects before buying anything new (except adhesive). (Now, where's my "thud" emoticon when I need it?)

I'm putting it out on my blog as a way to hold myself accountable as my self-control is pretty pathetic. And with CHA around the corner, all those emails with sales and new releases are VERY tempting. ;)

Right now, I'm in the midst of re-organizing the scraproom. I just got a new bookcase that will be replacing a large table (that's not serving any purpose but to hold a couple baskets). Max is going to cut the legs of the table in half and we're re-purposing it as a table for the boys. It's a win-win! ;)

For now, though I'll share some pics of the boys. We didn't get too many pictures right around Christmas because all three of my guys caught that nasty bug that's been going around. Christian held off the longest, and he's almost over it - just a bit of the sniffles left.

I tried - really, really tried - to get a nice picture of the three of them in front of the fireplace, but Andrew just was not cooperating. So, here's part one and two:



Fast forward to New Year's Eve...we ended up having a family sleepover in the living room. Christian and Andrew were on the couch and love seat, while Will, Max, and I were on sleeping bags on the floor. Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of our indoor camping site, I (strangely enough) got a pic of our last dinner in 2010:


And really, who can resist breakfast for dinner?
Christian lost his first tooth of the new year. He's been wiggling it for a while, and it finally came out during dinner. :)
He's holding the tooth (the part of the photo that's in color), but it's really hard to see in the picture.



Yesterday was Max's 35th Birthday! I love my husband so much, like ridiculously so, and enjoyed spending his special day with him (he got off work for a mini-vacation...sweet!). We're taking the boys to a concert next (www.jamtour.com) as his "present".



And, finally, today we visited Chick-fil-A in the morning for our free spicy chicken biscuits (super yummy!), hit Chancy Drugs at lunch for free hot dogs and chips, and visited a couple parks in between.
At the first park, we took a nice walk and spotted the Hahira Fire Department cleaning their trucks. As they were leaving, the fire fighters tooted their horns for the boys. :)



We only had a short stay at park number 2, as Andrew decided to go down a slide and land in a puddle of water (there's a reason we call him "Trouble"!). I did catch this photo of him riding what he dubbed the "Bumble Bee Train". He keeps us hopping, that one.



It's been a busy 4 days already, and I'm hoping and praying that 2011 holds only the best!
