A Sunbeam!

New Year's Day brought changes at church, beginning with our new early time which is a little tough since our kids are late risers. Bryan and I got a new primary class full of rambunctious 6-year-olds which should be interesting as always. Hoyt got put in a new Nursery class with new teachers and so far he seems to like going. The biggest change though, was Lexie finally gets to go to primary and be a Sunbeam! She didn't want me to take her picture after church so this is the best I got. She really likes her teacher and here she is with her "I Am a Child of God" crown.

Lexie is most excited to be in primary so she can sit on the stand and sing for the primary program...she really wanted to participate last year. I am helping her learn The Articles of Faith and she has the first 3 completely memorized and is now learning #4. We are excited to have a cute little Sunbeam in our house to brighten our lives!

Happy New Year!

This year our New Year's Eve was really low-key and I didn't even take pictures of the kids. Because it was on a Saturday night and we started 9 a.m. church the next morning we didn't do anything too spectacular. We went out and had some burgers and fries for dinner and the kids went to bed at their regular 8 p.m. I think next year we will do a party and count down at 9 before they go to bed, but they were both super tired and not up to doing much this year.

Bryan and I stayed up and watched the ball drop in New York which was 10:00 p.m. our time so we had our sparkling grape juice...

...and our New Year's kiss!
We started watching a movie, but I fell asleep 1/2 way through. After it was over we brushed our teeth, said prayers, and fell into bed. As I was falling asleep it turned 12 because I heard fireworks going off outside. I'm glad I didn't stay up any later because church came plenty early the next morning. I'm excited for the new year and looking forward to the good things it can bring. I know I probably won't keep any big resolutions this year, but each year I just try to make myself better and try harder every day. Happy 2012!!!
