Hi All: It's been so long that I did a blog, I couldn't even remember how to sign in. Pitiful, Huh? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We did here in Holbrook. The family all came by for brunch. Then in the afternoon they all went to their Grampa Smith's for dinner. And Pete & I enjoyed some peace & quiet.

We watched one of our favorite movies, Ben Hur. This movie always lifts me up and makes me so grateful for the Savior & His sacrifice for us. I sat there and resolved several things for the new year. (No not regular new year resolutions), but promises to myself as to how to be a better, and happier person this next year. I resolve to go to the Temple more, to read my scriptures more, to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. To be a better wife, mother, sister & friend. (And to write and read blogs more.)

So anyway, keep the blogs coming. I enjoy them so much!

Glad you had a Merry Christmas! I love your goals for next year. Mind if I steal those for me too?

I'm so glad to see you back bloging. And I love your new goals, except you really can't be a better sister, you are the greatest already!! See you soon.

Where have you been? It's good to have you back among the blogging. It's the only way we can keep up with you. How is the weight watchers going? Why haven't you blogged about your great success?

Bryan, thanks for the comments. Of course, I'll share my goals with you-----I'm sure you would do better at achieving them than I--after all, I'm much better at putting off until tomorrow, or maybe the next, or the next, etc.

Sis, You're the best sister! I just want to grow up and be like you.

Lonna, I'm holding my own on WW goals, haven't reached it yet, but I haven't been working very hard at it. I admit to putting on about 3 lbs. over the holidays. But I am still proud of my accopmplishment in the past year. I'll get back at it now that the fat season is over.

Love you all!!!
