Here We Are Again...

Our New Year's Eve was much the same as it's been the past two years. A new game to play with the family (this year - Jenga!), a movie, and toasts. I love making toasts as a family. The kids drink their sparkling juice in fancy glasses, Hubs and I enjoy a glass of champagne. To family! To another great year! To selling our house in '11! We also toasted to goals in the next year, the kids even made goals for Mollie, our family dog. Apparently she's going to get more exercise and pee ONLY outside.

When I started writing here in 2006, it was just in time to make a list of resolutions. I feel like I've kept those same resolutions year after year, because really, they are not the kinds of things you can do and then be finished with? They are mostly just a list of things I want to be doing all the time as a functioning member of my family, so plan to keep doing now, four years later.

I have some resolutions for TODAY.
* Take down the Christmas tree and put the storage containers in the basement.
* Finish 2010 photo book, which is my annual new year's tradition.
* Make lasagna.
* Eat lasagna.

Lofty goals for this cold winter's day.

Is it so wrong that the only reason I'm excited about a new year is because I get a new calendar?

Ugh, I still need to finish the 2009 photo book...and I'm not getting it done today. Soooo behind. Glad to see you are on top of things! Happy new Year!

We had pomegranate sparklers. Pomegranate juice, ginger ale and a spoonful of pomegranate "seeds" floating on top- m-m-m-m. We let
Sam be the "mixer". I didn't think a 7 year old should be called "bartender". Fun times! Oh, I forgot to mention the tons of food............ double m-m-m.

I have thought of you so often after the tragedy at MSH! Hard to figure out why...??? Take care of yourself and family and continue on your positive road.
