So I have really been enjoying life lately!  I feel this new sense of happiness, rejuvenation etc.  I really enjoyed the 21 day fast and I really feel like it was a much needed check in my life.  I know have a new found appreciation for my friends that God has placed in my life.  I just feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and I am free, free to share things that are going on and free to be myself.  There is no need to pretend to be someone I am not, if I cannot be who I am around people in the Church and my friends then what is the point?!

I have also really started to enjoy cooking!  I feel this desire to want to cook super healthy, organic etc.  When I cook I feel really happy and it has been a great outlet.  I would love to start taking classes or just continue to sort through recipes on my own; thankfully I have a husband and kids who LOVE to eat and are really good eaters when it comes to trying new things. 

I started back up classes this past week and I really feel on top of everything that is going on.  I have made it a priority this year to stay on top of things going on and have a calendar right next to the computer to make sure I get all that needs to get done during the day.  

Speaking of school, I have been doing "school" again with Alyvia and I have really been enjoying this too!  I seriously find when I am organized (darn that word again! I told you it was a theme!) and lay stuff out the night before and set out the time we are going to do then it actually gets done and she learns more and we are not impatient with each other.

This is turning into a really long post but I am wide awake!  I have found that in the past few days that I function on little sleep!

I will leave you with two cute pictures:

It has been a rough start to the new year, with two sick babies here at home.  Both Alyvia and Anderson have not been feeling the best; both with major coughs and breathing problems.  I should be in bed because I know it is going to be another long night but for some reason I cannot turn my brain off!  

My prayer tonight is for healing over this house.  Healing over my beautiful children who do not deserve to be in pain. I would do anything to take it away if I could; it is so sad to see Anderson so sad.

   This is Anderson passed out in the cart at Target =(

I am just glad that Jonathan had today off and has Saturday and Sunday off as well; it is nice to have an extra pair of hands!

I am finally going to try and get some sleep.  I am going to enjoy my babies snuggles while I can!
