Welcome 2009

Another year is upon us. For those of us on Guam, we rang the new year in last night. OK,not me, I was asleep at 10 but...

We sat down with the kids and talked to them about changes that we wanted to make in our home. So after telling them what a resolution is, they were ready to help. I love getting the kids opinions on things. It always makes me laugh. So here they are, the Turner Family 2009 resolutions...

**Eat healthier by eating at least 5 fruits/vegi's a day, limit sugar intake to one treat a day, only 45 min. of video games a day

**Family prayer and scriptures every night as a family, no matter what

**House picked up every night before we go to bed

** Save money by not wasting food, only buy things we need ( the kids weren't that excited about this one as they realized we didn't need Bubble Yum, pokemon cards, Webkinz, etc) only eat out once every pay period ( the kids asked what a pay period was) finishing the food we take, be responsible for our belongings

** Exercise More

I think we did a pretty good job. Wish us luck!

Kids are funny! I can see my boys having a heart attack if I said we were limiting video games to 45 mins. They would claim their world is ending!

Good Luck. I didn't even really bother this year. I might start in March or something. But how smart to involve the kids.
