We have been good this month and we survived the 3 huge storms. I love falling asleep to the sound of rain. In Uruguay we only had a piece of metal (I think aluminum) between us and the sky and so even when it was barely raining it was pretty loud. I used to just lay there and love that sound. It rains more often there than here so I got to hear it more and since I got home I miss it. So this last week it was so nice to have all the rain. Here are a few pictures since it has been a while since I posted any. Bryn has finally started letting me put her super cute bows in her hair. I have been getting and collecting cute bows since she was born but she would never leave them in so all I have to say is FINALLY! And thanks to Heather and Rachelle for giving me some cute bows to use! This is her cheesy smile that she gave me when I said I wanted a picture. I think I have a sarcastic kid on my hands. Payback for all the sarcasm I have dished out I guess.
Snuggling with Grandma during her visit last weekend.

And I cannot seem to break her of the style-your-hair-with-food habit that she has. She is such a goofball.

I got to go see Leap Year last night and it was cute. Man for my 20th wedding anniversary (in 15 years) I want to take a trip there. Then I drove home blasting Juanes, Shakira, La Oreja de Van Gogh, Arbol and Reik and sang at the top of my lungs. It was so fun!! Good times, good times.

Ok, well so far January has been nice. We have been cleaning and organizing like crazy! We had a whole bedroom full of so much junk that you couldn't even go in the room. So we cleaned it out and threw away a TON of stuff and re-organized the garage and everything is much more organized. I always put organizing off but it feels so good to have everything clean and in order. Hey, what do you know the scripture about a house of order is true!! And Bryn is so funny because she has recently become OBSESSED with Blue's Clues. She doesn't even want to watch Dora or Backyardigans anymore. She calls it Clue clues and gets so mad if I don't turn it on when she wants it. She is so funny with the phases that she goes through. And I want to post my goals for the year here so that I can be reminded to accomplish them.
1) Re-read the Book of Mormon and really study it, not just read it.
2) Continue with my quote book which I have been neglecting.
3) Deep clean one room in my house every week
4) Lose 10 lbs. I know everyone sets weight loss as a goal but I am really going to do it. I am drinking slim fast for breakfast and dinner and I am walking 3 days a week and doing wii active the other 2. My goal is to lose the 10lbs by about March since that is when we want to start trying for baby #2 again. We will see how it goes. No pictures this time but I will post more later. See ya!

So, I have for some reason felt like reading poetry lately. This is not a habit, I usually can't stand poetry but I had a book from a class in college and I started reading through it again and realized I like some poetry. Here is a funny poem by Alexander Pope:

Where-e'er you find the cooling Western breeze
In the next Line, it whispers thro' the Trees
If Chrystal Streams with pleasing Murmurs creep
The Reader's threatened (not in vain) with sleep

I thought it was cute, funny and true!

And here is one by Shakespeare:

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red, than her lips red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.

Apparently I only like humorous poetry, but still. I just thought I would share. That is all.

Here are some pictures of us and Bryn at about 8pm. Bryn only made it to about 9:30 and then she was in bed. We stayed up playing Guitar Hero 5 until late because it is so addicting. I gave Bryn her first taste of some sparkling cider and she wasn't too fond of it. She only took 1 sip and then didn't want any more.

The New Year's Kiss!
With Daddy!
