happy new year!

we are thrilled 2010 is here!
  • looking forward to lots of “kingsley” things.
  • excited for 2010 travels to utah, florida, NYC, and cabo, mexico.
  • fulfilling new goals and exciting work projects
  • exploring DC more and being more adventurous
  • maybe exercising a little
  • giving more hugs to people and not feeling awkward about them
  • developing myself more spiritually– strengthening my testimony of the gospel
  • celebrating birthdays, a 3 year wedding anniversary and other special holidays
  • planning a costume party for kingsley’s 1st halloween birthday (eeeek!)
  • moving forward with other personal goals and dreams
  • embracing everything else that’s thrown at us this year– the good, the bad….all of it!
bring it on, 2010!
we love you already!
*p.s. we die over kingsley’s turtleneck (thank you sarah and dmitri)
and his obsession with sitting beside the fire for hours watching it crackle. he’s a goof ball.

    I just recently stumbled across your blog–and I'm already getting blog envy! ;)

    I love your genuine style (and not just in fashion–'cause your obviously adorable in that area)…

    I think you're a great example of living young LDS life to the fullest! That's what I try to do :)

  9. I do have to say that Kingsly looks rather regal (in an English sort of way) sitting in front of the fireplace with a turtleneck on :)
    Nice goals!!

    I was watching americas funniest home videos tonight and there next contest is on bulldogs. Obviously its the simple process of submitting a video of something your dog did. I am not sure if you guys would be interested in this at all but I do read your blog from time to time and when i was it I thought of kingsley

  23. Chloé

    That little sweater is the cutest thing I have ever seen! I always freak out over dog clothes- my mom think I'm crazy but I don't care what she says. A cold puppy deserves a sweater!

  41. happy new year to all 3 of you….2010 is going to be the best!!

  42. Happy New Year! I never would have guessed you would be uncomfortable with hugs. I have the same issue that I'm trying to get over as well.

  43. what? a little puppy sweater? how absolutely adorable!

  44. oh my heavens! that is the cutest picture, it makes me giggle:)

  45. Ariel

  47. Could he possibly be any more adorable?

  48. Kiasa

    I'm trying to decide which is more adorable…the wrinkled pooch or your complete giddiness over him. So fun!

  49. Bryan
