Goals, good news, and goofiness!

So...it seems that I add a post every 8 months, so I wouldn't want to break that track record. However, I do want to improve it...especially because I want my family and friends to be able to know what we're up to as a family. So, I have made a goal. And, the neat thing that I recently learned about goals is to make minimum and maximum goals, so you don't set yourself up for failure if the goal is too lofty, but also allow yourself little triumphs along the way until you can work up to your maximum.
That being said, here is my goal: minimally, I will post at least once a month some fun tidbit that has happened in our family, how the kids are growing and changing, etc. Maximally, I will post every Sunday or Wednesday something for each week.
There you have it. :) I'm excited to really keep better track of my own life, so I don't forget all the great lessons and feelings I have over the years...otherwise life seems to go by so fast and I can't remember what I ate for lunch yesterday, and other important things. ;)

At any rate, some good news: Jonny and I had a wonderful Valentine's Day present for each other - we went and got an hour long couples massage! It was heaven! Seriously - I highly recommend it. I learned a few new tips on how to massage better, as well as learned that it's actually really nice to have your knees massaged. Wierd, right? I thought so at first, but I really liked it!

And, as for goofiness, Morgan and James are growing like crazy! James is 21 lbs, 6.5 oz, which puts Morgan only 2 pounds heavier than her "little" brother. They sure love to play. Morgan will grab James around the shoulders and pull him into a big hug, with James just smiling all the while. There's no one he smiles for faster than for his big sister.
Morgan can count all the way to 10 now, although this week the number 5 is getting left out from time to time. She is still so social, and loves to play out in the snow, and every puddle MUST be splashed in.
They are my joys.

Well, until next week (hopefully), I love you all!

P.S. I had my manager ask me a profound question that got me thinking: What do you want to do before you die?

Awww cute! I wanna see pictures of little (not so little) James! They sound like they are having such fun being siblings!

Another goal is to learn how to get pictures off of my camera and onto my work computer...I haven't had a lot of success. :(
But...I will triumph sooner or later!
