I can't believe a year has come and gone. Never a dull moment in 2012. I learned alot of what TO do and what NOT to do. I don't plan on dwelling on the failures, but learn from them, make changes, and look forward to what the future brings. However, 2012 did bring so many blessings and with them I say, "Thank you, Jesus".
For the past week, the house has been filled daily with laughter, tons of food, Downton Abbey, and creative hands making cards, designing scrapbook pages, or knitting/crocheting. Every year from December 26th thru January 1st, 4 of us ladies spend these days indulging in our favorite things. Since the festivities happen at my house, I usually live in my fleece holiday pants ( 1 pair for everyday, no duplicates ). Not to mention, I still have the little ones I daycare, so I need to be comfy to be able to move quickly.
We start our crafting around 10:30 am and go strong until midnight, each day. We do potluck most of those days, so needless to say, tomorrow I will be SLAPPED back into reality. There is always a movie going in the background. Most years we watch the old movies from the 40's & 50's. Lots of Cary Grant. This year, Downton Abbey. I have Seasons 1 & 2, so, Julia and Rebecca watched both seasons and are now all caught up and ready for the new season that starts this Sunday, January 6th, on PBS. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
School starts back up on Thursday, so that means the 6 little ones will be together one more day. With the refrigerator full of leftovers, I am hoping tomorrow will be a very easy day. Lots of snuggling in the rocking chair, coloring, Barbies, and refereeing.
First goal for 2013, blog something everyday. Talk to you tomorrow.
