Last year, I stumbled on a really amazing group of people who choose one word on which to focus all year long.  I joined this group and chose the word serenity.  At different times thoughout 2011, I would find myself in an overwhelming situation, and would start repeating the word "serenity."  I was surprised to find it somewhat helpful! 

This year, I have chosen 2 words to focus for my family {joy} and one for myself {transform}.  Each day, we will choose joy.  Find joy in every situation.  Express joy!  This is something that comes very naturally for all of it shouldn't be too much work.  ;)  As for MY word, transform, there are just so many things I want to improve upon this year!  Hopefully, I will be able to share many transformations in 2012.  :)

All of that, we were trapped inside the house due to super yucky rainy cold weather.  What to do what to do?  We came up with something!! 

Every once in a while, my littles indulge me and allow me to take their photos.  Today was one o those days.  It really brought all three of us a lot of joy!!!  :)

Glitter letters + balloons + the kiddos = JOY!

Ryleigh was eager to participate!

Michael is a super cool 4 year old now.  His willingness was not as free...but we got there!

Mom, I am not going to smile.  

OK bud....let's make faces.  First up, sad face.

Next up, silly face!

And that is all it took!  JOY!

And finally...MY joy.

What a sweet post! I love R's shirt, totally fits w/ the shoot. It's great that you were able to find some joy in this gloomy, gray day. I was expecting sunshine and warm temps. !?! Not sure what happened on that front! Looking forward to hearing all about the transformative days of 2012! :)
