New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve party prep - thumbprint cookies on the way
Some time in the last month or so I found a page I'd written with about 50 ideas of "Things I could do every day in 2015" Since I remembered writing these in more of a brainstorming way than a resolution way, I didn't feel too bad that I hadn't done many of them.

And this is where I was going to make a list of all the ones I actually did do every day, but then I realized that there were only about three.

So, instead: how about some of those things I worked on this year:

- read scriptures on my own (Book of Mormon)
- walk
- write for my blog
- make good dinners
- pre-school time with Owen
- clean the kitchen before bed
- bed by 9:30 (ish)
- family prayer and scriptures
- brush kids teeth (or remind to brush/floss)

Probably the most successful here were writing on my blog (because I made it a habit every day while Porter napped) and family prayer and scripture study (because Jordan took charge and helped us remember every night before the kids went to bed).

And even though I know all of my goals will likely be just the same as every other year since I was about sixteen... I'm excited for a new year and a good chance to write those goals all down again. :)
