2011 ~ Some new and some the same.....

So, the start of a new year has brought changes to our family. And a little of the same old stuff as well. One of the "New Years Resolutions" that Steve and I set for ourselves was working on eliminating our credit card debt and so, we decided that the only way this was going to happen was for us to be bringing in as much income as we could this year. SOOOOO, I got a job.....for right now it's a temporary position that could only last for a couple of months, but it's something to get us started. For the next 8 weeks (or longer) I'll be working on a marketing project for an athletic club in Rockwall. My employment also came with a gym membership and, truth be told, that was definitely a deciding factor on whether or not I would take this position. I am once again attempting to get back down to a more "healthy" weight and lifestyle. And I'm thinking that working at a gym 5 days a week could really help me out with this!!
Steve is also going to be bowling a lot more on the weekends than he has in the almost 3 years that we've been together. He's bowling really well right now, possibly the best he's ever bowled, and we want to capitalize on that, so he'll be traveling a lot more this year and we hope that he'll be able to really be successful in his bowling career.
There really isn't much new for the kiddos this year. Ryann got braces during the last week of December and will have them for 12-14 months. And both girls will continue taking cheer this year. They seem to really enjoy it and they are learning a lot. Both girls are doing well in school.....and that's not something that I expect to change for the remainder of the year....thank goodness!! Grant is crawling all over the place and is already hard to keep up with!! He still only has two teeth, but we're hoping some more come through poor boy needs some relief!!!
Other than that, there isn't a whole lot going on with us. Check out our photo site for pics from this month.
Love to all,
Melony & the fam : )
