Habits are Hard to Break & Accountability...

I don't think I will be able to sleep tonight if I don't blog...haha! I guess there are worse habits to have...haha!

We had another relaxing day today. It is going be so hard to get back into the swing of things next week! We LOVE spending our days together...just chillaxin :o)

This was my view for much of the morning...
Hillary Ashton on her new DSi and Sophie Le on her iXL. I remember being so pumped about my awesome Tandy 1000hx computer {complete with the optional floppy drive!) I got when I was in the sixth grade. It would have BLOWN my mind if I would have seen anything likes these two gadgets! Btw, I LOVE the DSi and I want one :o)

The girls got a BIG surprise when they went to their room to play this afternoon. Daddy was standing on the roof outside their window raking leaves...I am telling you, there are leaves EVERYWHERE!

I have been working really hard to beef little Jonah up over the last month and it's WORKING!!! Whoo hoo! He has passed the twenty pound mark and I put him in a front facing carseat today. {Btw, I do realize backwards is safer, but for the sanity of all involved, the decision to turn him around was unanimous. He is such a GREAT baby, but he does NOT like riding in the all!} Jonah LOVED being able to see the dvd player and hold hands with mama on our trip to town this afternoon :o)
If you look closely, you may notice that we were finally able to find a carseat configuration that allows us to fit FIVE carseats in my car...just in case we need it :o) Just sayin'

There were many days in the beginning of 2010 when I thought there was NO way I would be able to finish my 365 project, but the longer I blogged, the easier it got. I am thankful to have a lot of our pictures, funny stories and everyday boredom documented for my kids to look at one day...although, they will probably think it's dumb and won't care...haha!

It's a new year...what are your New Year's resolutions? Do you make them? I am working on my list...but I'm not ready to share it :o) Will blogging make your list this year? Will you do daily...twice a week...weekly?

I am not sure if I will be blogging daily or weekly (let's be honest, it will definitely be more than weekly...haha!), but I do know that I will be blogging. I cannot bear the thought of not capturing this year of our lives. I am sure our days may be boring, but the overall picture will be great entertainment to look back on one day :o)

If you are committed to blogging in 2011, grab a button and stick on your sidebar. That way we can keep each other accountable...because I felt a little lonely when some of you quit blogging on a regular basis in 2010...haha! It's all about my feelings, ya know!

Also, just to cement our plans (whether it's daily, weekly or monthly), link up below so the whole class can follow you this year. Pressure = good, regular blogging...haha!

Thank goodness, I was worried you would take a break from blogging! Love your daily pics and thoughts! Oh, and May 25th is sausage and cheese manicotti and veggies! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous start to 2011!

I am so glad you decided to continue blogging, b/c I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Oh, and I love that you can get that 5th carseat to fit, "just in case" ;)
