Goodbye 2009:
We were happy with our growth and accomplishments last year, and excused ourselves from some of our goals due to moving twice in six months.

We are ready for a great 2010!

Hopefully one in which our address stays the same throughout the entire year.

2010 Family Theme:
"Love should be our walk and our talk."
-D. Uchtdorf

2010 Family Scripture:
Mark 12:30-31
"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."

2010 Family Goals:
studying the Articles of Faith, 3 service projects, speaking nicely to eachother, visiting 5 new places, and greater temple attendance

2010 Personal Goals:
We each wrote 4 personal goals: One goal was based on a new skill to learn (cooking, piano, etc.), one on physical development (play baseball, being able to touch your toes, etc.), one on knowledge (reading a chapter book, studying Portuguese, etc.), and one on character (staying calm, respecting others, etc.).

Have I ever mentioned how much I want to be just like you guys?? I love the goals, and I hope you accomplish them all. I'd make an exception to that keeping the address the same for a year if it meant you were coming back to Utah, but other than that....I hope they all come true! And I love the family pictures.

Love all the goal ideas. Good luck on accomplishing them! (I should follow your example, but it's easier not to!)
