Farewell to the Old

I keep losing track of my days.

I was sure that today was Tuesday....

Until I looked at the calendar that said it is Thursday.... and the last day of 2009.

I don't even know where this year went, it just flew by.

But I am determined to ring in the New Year. 

My resolution is to not let this next year pass my by.

I want to savor each and every day.

I want those days to be full of love and laughter.

I want to be silly.

I want to fly kites.

I want to make a mess of the kitchen.

I want to try new foods.

I want to go on a road trip.

2010 will be OUR year.

And to herald it in, I declare today "No Computer Day."

We will make popcorn balls.

And cookies.

And a little something savory.

And then we will nap.

Because I want us to try and make it to midnight.

Tonight we will party.

Tonight begins a new decade.

Tonight begins a new way of living.

For us, and maybe for you.

Happy New Year!


  1. AWWW! Love those gold dresses your girls are wearing. And how one of your boys looks like he is shushing the other one...LOL! I wish you a very blessed and prosperous NEW year!
