a new year

i don't make new years resolutions, but i've been wanting to get back to my blog.  i feel like i've waited too long and now everyone has forgotten about me.  is that true?  is there anyone out there that still reads this?  well, if you do, i'm going to attempt to come back.  i proclaiming a new start on the blog.  i'm not going to worry about the fact that it's been over 3 months since i last blogged, and i'm going to start with life now.

so - do you want a little update on what i've been up to?  i have to admit, this is part of the reason i haven't blogged...

yeah!  C gets to be a big sister this june!  i found out i was pregnant shortly before the last time i blogged.  at that point i felt good.  then the tiredness hit.  like HARD.  for 2 months, i could barely keep my eyes open when i got home from work.  i put C down for her nap, and crawled to my bed for mine.  i'm still tired, but no where near where i was in the beginning.  

we had been trying to get pregnant for a year, and i'm in the process of writing out this little babies story.  it's pretty amazing how god has moved in our lives this past year.  it's worth a post of it's own, and i really want to get it down before i forget too much.  

so, now that i'm not crazy tired anymore, i'm ready to get back into blogging.  

we had a wonderful christmas and a lot of great family time.  i'm big on being in our house on christmas eve and christmas morning.  we had a relaxed evening and morning, and it was exactly what i wanted.

 polar express, movie bed, a fire, christmas lights and snuggling with C and the hubs.  
i couldn't ask for a better night.

i wanted a picture of her new christmas nightgown.  she wanted to show off her new 
cinderella ornament.  =)

she got a pumpkin coach and her prince charming.  the two things she has been asking for since october.  christmas success!  

we always need a good family pic in front of the tree!

and the classic picture of the cardboard box that the toys came in.  so many new toys, and these two couldn't get enough of this box!

and here's a quick shot of our new year's eve.  loved having everyone over to our house.  and the girls did a great job with their hats!

hope you all had a very merry christmas and a happy new year!  we are ready for 2013!  we find out the gender of the baby in a few weeks, and i am ready to start preparing for a little brother or little sister.  C is starting tap and ballet classes in a week, and the little babe inside of me is getting more and more active everyday.  all great things.  i have a feeling that 2013 is going to be pretty special!

hope to be back soon!  ;)
