So now that I'm
almost, halfway, kind of done catching up with all of you and halfway through my New Year organization frenzy that I do every year, I thought I should post something.
I know the holidays are over, but I realized that I hadn't posted any pictures since the Christmas decor.
So, please forgive me for the late wrap-up.
My son, Alex, came for a visit.
He's in Military school to become a pastor, so he's taking advantage of the no hair rules or facial hair rules.
My children love to ham it up for the camera.
Okay kids.... please just give mom one nice picture.
Never mind lol
We played scrabble that night.
and took the time to make cookies, before Alex had to head back.
For Christmas Eve, I made dinner at home and my tradition is that I always invite any friends that don't have family to eat with. This year it was just my friend Sharon, so there was only four of us. Sometimes it's up to ten people so as much as I love doing that for my friends, it was much more relaxing this year.
Christmas day and evening was at my mom's house, but I didn't take pictures this year.
On New Years Eve, we were going to have a pajama cocktail party, but we had a scare with Mini and we thought she'd have to have surgery, but she didn't, thank God, so it turned into a pajama party for three instead.
There's Sharon eating all the glorious food...
There may have been a few cocktails involved ;)
But Mini partied the most ;)
The next day we watched the rose parade and then everything went back to normal.
Well, except for this new weird thing that Bubba does with his front legs...
Silly boy :)
So that's it for the wrap-up.
Oh and one last thing...
Apparently it's "the thing" to come up with a word for the New Year.
So, even though I'm not a "thing" girl, I came up with one anyway.
My word is...
Not just my house this time, but an all around restoration of myself.
I've been neglecting myself for a long time for the sake of my family and my home (I'm sure you ladies know what I mean ;) ) and although I'm glad I sacrificed myself for the better of little lives and my passion of old houses, I believe that it's time to start taking a little care of "me" too.
So I am and I feel better.
A lot better :)
Take care of YOU too, okay?
