Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I love the New Year... I promise myself NO New Year Resolutions.. I've just never been that kind of girl. Probably a good thing I'm not a Catholic Girl either... because Lent would be out the window for me....
Instead I focus on dreams, desires, and where the Lord wants to take me... sometimes I battle with HIM because *I* have better ideas of what I WANT from life..... He has other plans almost always... Ü
This year... I would like to focus on my photography.. and learn more of my camera and to take better photos. ... I think I've gotten MUCH better... but there's always room for improvement!
I would like to put more effort into my dreams of becoming a nurse....I know what to do... I just need to stop believing I'm going to fail before I start!
This year I would like to become healthier.. and lose another 10lbs.... I want to be the example for my family to follow!
There's three... anymore and I think I would be setting myself up for failure.....
I however would like to blog more...I am missing it.. and I'm missing all of you that read! For that I thank you!!

I'm adding just a couple photos to share... ( to me ... I have to have a picture for each post!)....
Here are a picture of my crazy kiddos.. the day we went out looking for our Christmas Tree.

Here is the Tree Farm in Vermont....slim pickings this year.. but we found the BEST ONE!!
And a quick photo of my neighbor... she facebooked me for three weeks to ask me if I would "hurry" and take her photo for Christmas.... So during the busy week before... I took a bunch for her.... I actually liked this photo of her.... it captured her personality well!
I hope you all had an AMAZING CHRISTmas.... and a HAPPY New YEAR!!!

Happy New Year!! I refuse to do resolutions. Cause I never keep them for long lol. But like you I do hope to listen to what the Lord has for me more this year, and I too hope to blog more often.

Why was it slim pickings @ the tree farm?

Happy New Year! Loved your pics! I also decided for New Years this year that I have NO Resolutions. So my New Years resolution was to have NO New Years Resolutions and maybe at the end of next year I will be much happier with those results! I was super excited to see you had a post up!!! I love your blog!

I've missed you.

Make sure you share all of the camera tricks you find.

And, I love the Christmas farm, even in the snow!

Merry CHRISTmas and Happy 2010.

Happy New Year! I too decided against resolutions this year although there are plenty of things I'm going to strive to attain. I hope that you and your beautiful family are blessed in 2010!
