New Year...New?

What?  We all have something 'new' to add to our list for the upcoming year.  New goals, new things to focus on, the list goes on & on.

This year, I am having a baby, so my goal is to survive.  That's right, that is my top priority this year.

Okay, not really {yes, really!}, but I am keeping it simple this year so I don't feel overwhelmed.  Because feeling overwhelmed leads to stress, leads to goals not met & me feeling like a loser.

So while I am keeping it simple there is one thing I am adding to my week each year & I am hoping it stays simple!  That is Family Home Evening.  That is Mormon Talk for Monday night being Family Night.  Meaning we have a small lesson/thought, sing a song, open & close with prayer & cap it off with a treat.  Now, most nights at my house could be classified as 'Family Night.'  My kids are young & their activities don't take them from us in the evenings...so every night is Family Night!  But this year, I've decided they are old enough that we are going to get a bit more formal in our approach -- like by actually calling it Family Home Evening & having a set lesson each Monday.

And while this might not sound simple at all I have found my link to sanity in this endeavor...here.  This girl has a whole year of FHE {Mormon talk again...Family Home Evening} lessons!!!  Um, thank you.  That I can do.  And I might inform that I do not plan on every FHE going perfect or smooth & sometimes the treats will probably not be home made...but dang it, we will call it Family Home Evening!
