most viewed tutorials of 2012

I can't believe that another year is gone by and another is starting in just a few days! I thought I would share some of my most popular tutorials of 2012. I think it's fun to look back and see what I have worked on this past year.

resolution wall hanging

Every year, we sit down as a family and talk about some goals for the up coming year. This year, I decided to use our "giving thanks" wall hanging as a resolution wall hanging too. So I switched out the grateful things note cards and autumn leaves and replaced them with goal lists and snowflakes.
{I painted some cardstock with gliter then cut out the numbers and wrapped some thin wire around them}

We helped the kids with their goals. We were pretty sure this is what Elly wants to accomplish this year. I'm pretty excited about Parker's goal to become potty trained. We asked Jackson to set a goal for the next year. 
Jax: I want to go to school.
Me: But you already go to school. What is something you want to learn to do?
Jax: I want to learn how to decorate for a party. Because I don't know how to do that. (not sure where that came from)
Danny interjects: Try to think of things that might be hard or challenging so that you have to work really hard to learn it.
Jax: I think decorating for a party IS hard because I don't know how to do it.

I told him I would have a special class with him on how to decorate for a party and we will decorate for Danny's birthday in January.

On my list of goals is to run a half marathon which I will be doing in July. I'm pretty excited about that. Danny has a goal to come home for lunch more often and finish three chapters of his dissertation. I really hope we can all accomplish our goals. And I am glad we wrote them down so that we can constantly be reminded of them and can help each other complete them.
