Looking Back and Ahead

Where did this year go??? Though I am not sad to see it go!  It was not a good year for us, and I'm praying that 2012 is better.  That being said, our kids are happy and healthy, Chad's cancer is back in remission, and he has been employed for the last 6 weeks.  It's not a long-term solution, so he continues to look for something else.

I went and looked at what I written as my goals for this year, and I didn't do too bad!  I reclaimed some kitchen cabinets, worked on my cookbook project (which will be a perpetual project), and completed all 52 of MFT's weekly sketches.  You will be seeing #'s 51 and 52 in the next few days.  So my goals for this year are:
1.  continue to work on my cookbook project
2.  do more stamping for ME, when and what I want to.
Keeping it simple this year, I have no energy to do much more than that!

I didn't think I was going to get Christmas photo cards out this year, but things came together at the last minute (i.e., the kids cooperated) and I managed to
send some out a few days before Christmas. 
So here are my 5-1/2 year old and 17 month old (going on 3, lol):

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I love looking at everyone's year in review posts, so I thought I'd add my favorite cards by month:












Thanks for stopping by!
