Week one of the new year.
Come and gone.
My, how time goes by fast.
I didn’t make any resolutions, persay, but decided this year would be different.
I would have family dinner ready before Drew has to leave for work…so he gets to join us more often.
I WILL get my etsy shop started and utilize my goodies. I have many..many…many creative ideas and hadn’t made the time…(but, it’s a new year, so what better time to START!)
I am going to promote, promote, PROMOTE my photography business this year (because I LOVE to take photographs and I want to help others capture their memories.)
I am going to visit more family…all of my family.
I am going to wake up every morning with devotions and prayer so I can be the best MOM, WIFE, and FRIEND I can be…and I know God has big plans for my simple life.
More kisses, hugs, and kind words.
I am going to manage my time with family, school, and me better.
I can go on and on…but the point is, 2010 is going to be a DIFFERENT year!
So, on to our first week of 2010
We went to Gramma Bev and Cecil’s on the 1st and stayed for the weekend. A GREAT way to begin the new year.
Jessie loves to play dress up and now and put on ballet shows. It is really cute. She can’t wait to begin classes.
nothing like a good game of OLD MAID!
Ahhh…all pooped out and fast asleep.
Then, on Sunday, we left to go to Granny and Gramps’s house. We didn’t get to stay very long, but it was wonderful to see them.
Granny gave me this box. It’s an antique Heinz 57 her mom used to use as a bread box. I am so grateful. I LOVE it!
Gramps is such a good story reader. Jess and Connor got these new books for Christmas and they immediately needed to know what they were about.
Granny and Gramp’s cat…doesn’t like kids…
flying paper airplanes from the balcony.
Granny and Gramps live in the “woods” and the deer are always hanging around. It is REALLY awesome for us when the kids get to see them. They get excited. So a group of about six deer came up to the front of the house and eat all the bird seed. Gramps ran out to scare them away. This deer was brave and snuck back. She eyeballed that bird feeder with all our faces squished in the window. I guess she didn’t want to see “scary Gramps” again and walked off…no bird seed and no scary Gramps.
Well, that’s all for now. Iwill post more tomorrow about our SNOW day! Yes…we actually got enough snow to go sledding…YIPPEE!
