We were invited to a little New Year's Eve party last night. It's the first time we've done anything special to ring in the new year since becoming parents almost eight years ago. So we were excited. And since it's the first time the kids have ever done anything fun on this night - they were downright giddy. We all had a great time. Lots of food, fun with friends, yummy drinks and we all made it until 11:00! Crazy! Then we came home and had all kids in bed by 11:12pm. We were praying for a late morning - but both boys were up by 6:15am. Could be a very long day! But worth it.
So here we are -- 2011. I love the feel of new beginnings. Anything is possible. I have been thinking of goals for myself this year and came up with four. That sounds reasonable, don't you think?
1. Get rid of everything in our home (and garage!) that we don't either use or love.
2. Exercise regularly - with the focus on health rather than weight.
3. Memorize 24 verses (along with Beth Moore and thousands of other women!).
4. Have more dates with hubby and one-on-one outings with kids (at least once a month).
Happy New Year everyone!
