working on it

in an effort to satisfy distant relatives (namely grandparents- sorry)

I'm playing catch up on the blog.
(sorry I've been such a slacker)
Although I won't ever really get all caught up, I'll at least do the last month or so
then I can start fresh this year.
and be better.
and now's a good time to do it's only a handful of days into the new year and not a lot has really happened this year

except for...
a couple days of vomitting kids
the kick off of Dubai little league (Asher's first year of t-ball and John's first year of coaching)
Ivy's new ballet class
Ivy entering Primary as a Sunbeam!
my new calling in the church nursery kickin' it with Canyon
oh and I've reorganized/ decorated the kids rooms and playroom
and done a few art projects for the wall
and Canyon seems to have revved up his personality and vocabulary these last couple weeks
and I cheered on a friend running a marathon this morning and cried as I was cheering
plus I tried a delicious recipe for homemade soft pretzels that my friend Darcy recommended
and we're planning activities for our visitors (Nana, Grandpa and Aunt Lizzie!) next month.
and, well,
other than that, not much has happened
this new year has been pretty quiet.

but, as I was saying/ writing. I'll be catching up and eventually backdating events from the last few months until this year gets away from me and I decide to just move forward. that's all for tonight.
more tomorrow.
