Happy Holidays 2012

Happy Holidays, from the Tran Family 2012
Wishing you and your family the best this holiday season and for the most amazing 2013. We send our love and prayers to the families in Newport, CT. We can't imagine the pain and suffering they are going through. I hugged my family even tighter everyday thankful that I have them.
We attempted to visit Santa the other day. Ayden was estactic as normal but that little Chinese girl...forget it she screamed bloody murder. You'd think we were trying to ditch her at the north pole or something. She loves to wave "hi" to people but if you dare say it back she runs and hides. Very diva like if you ask me...I have no idea where she gets it from haha (yeah, yeah it's from me.)
Our family portraits came out better then ever and we got cards out in a flash. I say it every year but the year truly did go by in a heartbeat. Our lives are busy every day and I cherish every day I have with my family. Proud of my little sister Stephanie for graduating college and getting into her first choice of pharmacy school. Proud of my brother Jason for surviving his first semster of college. And proud of my kids for every single one of their milestones. They say enjoy this age and I do. Ayden's a chatter monkey and is pretty smart. Aria is picking up more Chinese and it's always fun when and where she chooses to use Chinese or Vietnamese. This is what happens when your kids are tri-lingual.
It's supposed to snow a ton tomorrow so here's to safe drive into work tomorrow.

One year later

It's truly disgracefull that I have neglected my blog for an entire year. And as cliche as it sounds, my how time flies. Motivated by some new blog followers (you know who you are!) I hope to update my blog more often.

This time last year new and exciting adventures waited for the Tran family. Our family has been through a lot this last year, so many milestones, lots of fun, and of course lots of things that helped us grow. I've learned a lot about MYSELF this last year as well. I've always been pretty motivated and goal oriented. That's my drive. I simply can't be less than par. Question was this year where is par. I don't do bare minimum, wasn't raised or taught that way. Probably part of the whole immigrant parents and first generation American heritage in me.

That was the boring stuff. Let's get to the good stuff.

I have not been able to be as crafty as I was in 2011 but some crafts still managed to get done.
Maybe a recap of some highlights of 2012....

+ Aria turned 1, learned to walk and talk (currently in her "parrot" phase) plus no more binky!
+ Ayden completly being potty trained, going on his first big boy vacation sans mom and dad
+ 5 year wedding anniversary
+ 10 year high school reunion
+ Another year older but celebrated with Magic Mike (<~yes that's a highlight)
+ Girls trip to Vegas (front row seats to Chippendales holla)
+ First 5k done (Color Me Rad Run)
+ Booking my BSB 2013 cruise
+ Starting personal training workout sessions
+ Made it to the 2 year mark at work
+ Lots of new friends
+ Least amount of family drama ever

Yup that's my year in a nutshell.

Will post pictures next time!
