My friend Sarah asked me if I had done the things that I wanted to do by the time I was this age, but as sad as it is, I didn't really have any goals set for myself. I have started my family and I think that when I was younger, that was pretty much the only thing that I really wanted. Now I don't want you to get me wrong, having a family is a big deal, and I love mine so very much, but what do I want? Where do I want to go? How do I want to raise my family? Do I laugh enough? Do I help my family or the community? What should I do for Dan to make him the happiest husband ever? I think like many people in this world, I just kinda cruise by. I don't take the time to evaluate my life and think of the things that I need or even want to do. When I am with my little girls, they make things so simple. I try to be patient and be like them, because they take in EVERYTHING! They love to learn and laugh and be crazy. Life is so short and yet I take for granted that I am going to wake up in the morning and be there with my family. I guess I need to breath and slow down. I need to be more happy. I need to tell people that I love them. I need to not be so scared of life in general.
Am I crazy for thinking about all this stuff because I turned 28? I don't know, but it can't hurt!

The girls are so different, Hawley was walking all over and playing in the snow. Loving every minute of it.....
Scarlett on the other hand would just stand in one place and not move. She hated every minute that she was outside. What is weird is that the last time it snowed (in September) she absolutely loved playing in the snow. The only thing we can think of, is that she can somehow remember falling into the fire pit and associates that with snow. We don't know, but she hates it now. In the picture she was crying.
