A New Year!

2012 was such a great year for me!  The highlight of last year was...drumroll... getting married to my best friend! We did so many fun things last year.  San Diego on our honeymoon, Disneyworld together, Remii went to Hawaii, and we went on some fun family trips to Myrtle Beach, Washington DC and lived in North Carolina for the summer.  A great idea that came to me this summer was to start a food blog and share my love for cooking with everyone.  Little did I know that my idea would become what my blog is today and I am so glad that I have a family that supports me.  Who am I kidding?  Of course they support me.  I make delicious food and treats all of the time!  This has been a great year and I am excited to see what 2013 brings.  And it better be a baby or two!  Ok definitely just one baby but I would love for an addition to the River's family to come this year!
Goals for this year:
Get Preggo
Lose 10 before our cruise next month
Run at least a mile every day
Read the BOM with the family this year
Be a loving and supportive wife
Be more patient with life in general

Christmas Festivities

I wish that I could hire someone to blog for me.  My family blog is getting neglected.  And this is most important to me because I want to remember all of these fun things that we do together!  I am forcing myself to sit down and get caught up on it.  It was our first Christmas together as a family and it was a great one!  Ben and Luke were in our ward nativity play and it was so amazing!  Ben was a shepherd and Luke was a donkey.

 That night we went to temple square with my parents and saw the lights.  It always amazes me how beautiful it is!

We had a great Christmas together.  Nice and low key and relaxing.  The boys didn't really know what to ask for this year and since they just had their birthdays, they didn't ask for much.  Ben wanted the new diary of a wimpy kid, a guiness book of world record book and the new Paper Mario for his DS.  Luke wanted some Lord of the Rings Legos and a construction set.  That is really all that they asked for this year!

All dressed up for church!  Love these boys more than anything!!
