Christmas break.

so our Christmas was really super lovely and for some reason i decided to horrify myself & delete all of the pictures off of the camera before saving them on the computer. i'll just blame it on being pregnant. :( here is a picture of some other family celebrating Christmas instead:

i was thinking that in just a few short days my mom will have a birthday which means that new years eve will be here. every year (for the past 7 or so...) we have made it a tradition to brave the weather and head over to the wolfs lodge steakhouse in idaho for dinner to celebrate her birthday/new years eve. it's a lot of fun and we aways eat way to much. this year we made reservations for 14. can't wait to eat the best steak ever.

also i was thinking about my annual new years resolutions. i'm still working on next years, but i went back and checked out out last years. i did alright as far as completing them, i guess:
*start a blog-DONE
*call my sister corinne every week-i got so much better about this.
*send a birthday card to every family member- almost, except i'm still behind on jasmine's december birthday and the 3 thanksgiving brithdays didn't exactly get cards.
*play risk more-didn't even play. not even once. :(
*go through grandparents photos, and then put some up around the house-work in progress
*rebuild back deck before it falls off house-this deck has now gone through another 2 serious snow falls and is currently sitting under about 3 1/2 feet of heavy snow but its still standing.
*finish basement family room- plans changed and we remodeled the upstairs instead.
*have baby brother/sister for cody- almost finished with this one. yay!
*learn to play more on guitar. at least 2 songs -oops....
*paint inside of house- DONE
*continue exercise routine and incorporate more pilates/yoga- i stuck with this really well until about 3 months into my pregnancy.
*more scrapbooking- negative.
*get cody a dog- maybe next sumer.
*take cody camping A LOT! - we did take him camping, just not a lot.
*take cody to the imax- arah took him instead.
*get cody a really tall bunk bed (all kids should have the experience at least once)- still in the works.
*run bloomsday again and beat past times- yay! i did by a lot!
*do a triathalon or a mini marathon - i got pregnant and changed my mind. but next summer...
*ride hiawatha bike trail in montana (or is it in idaho?) - i did the cour d'alene trail instead.
*cook dinner at least 4x's a week - definitely did this one.
*cut out caffeine- got much better.
*forgive others and get past guilt -a lot of progress here.
*be a good, kind & understanding mama to cody- i made a conciencious effort.
*be sweet to merv -most of the time.
*set up some kind of schedule for life; work play. (& stick to it). -umm ya right. for some reason this is just impossible for me.
*put cody in swimming & soccer- did both and even coached his team.
*take cody rock climbing more. - learned how to belay and took him and brinley several times at the y.
*more snowboarding - none.
*get bigger fire safe!! (after watching neighbors house burn down, i realize i am not prepared)-check this one off, but the safe is still sitting in its box in the office with all of the important documents stacked on top. next year i'll organize it.

One time all of my pictures were deleted off my camera (darn kids!), and I took it to an electronics store (Frye's, but I'm sure Circuit City, Best Buy, or a camera store) and they were able to save all of them!

Hey I deleted most my honey moon pictures. Not a happy moment.
So I still have it, in my best intenstions, to knit or crochet some booties for the three little babies in the your family. I will try. Keep your fingers crossed.
