New Year 2012

5 Great things that happened in 2011
  1. Starting new jobs.  In January of 2011 Katie began subbing and Mark started with BBC’s IT department.  For Mark there was a steep learning curve and some very interesting twists and turns along the way.  Katie, however, was a natural from the beginning!
  2. Katie told me we were pregnant by coming to my work to meet with me at lunch at BBC.  She said had an “early valentines gift” for me.  It turned out to be clues that told me that she was pregnant.
  3. NYC for our 1st anniversary!  Though we ended up getting out of the city way later than we expected, we had a blast!  By the time we got to our hotel we had walked way too much for a pregnant women, and it was past hours for any nice restaurants.  So we had Taco Bell for our anniversary dinner!  We did enjoy an upgraded room, very modern looking!
  4. Birth of Eden!  Though the story was a bit crazier than we would have preferred, it ended with us holding our beautiful baby girl!
  5. Mark completed running 280 miles between the last week of July and the 11th of October.  To complete the goal Mark had to hold himself hostage by restricting himself from drinking Pop until he finished the running.  Completing this goal has led to further goal setting, and therefore bettering of his self.

5 measurable goals for 2012
  1. Read 2 parenting books
  2. Run a 5k together
  3. Pray together before bed 5 nights a week
  4. Take on an active ministry role in a local Church in Michigan
  5. Update our family blog at least twice every month
We would welcome any comments about our 2011 year, or any tips towards meeting our 2012 goals!
