Happy New Year!!!

I would like to tell everyone Happy New Year and hope you celebrated safely. We stayed home, our night out was the evening before. But it is fun to watch the ball drop on T.V. and be home safe and sound in your pajamas even though you are so tired and can hardly stay awake, I had fun celebrating with my hubby, he is such a wonderful man. Who would want to be anywhere else? I must be getting old, right? So not okay, I tell Doug we are not old and I will not consider us old until we are eighty. Fair enough or at least I think so, that gives me fifty-one years before I am old, so on New Year's Eve 2059, I hope everyone can still join me in a celebration although we will all probably be asleep by 5:30 p.m.

With the new year upon us I have been thinking back at all the things that has happened over the last year. The boys are growing up and changing so fast it is completely unbelievable they are 4 and 2 now. Eli started preschool and loves it, he has been slowly breaking out of his shell. Nic loves spending alone time with mommy and daddy even if it is only for a few hours a couple of days a week. Doug has been working a lot and we love him for it, he always puts the needs of his family before himself. We have grown closer to the Lord as a family. The boys have become more involved in our prayers during meals and at bedtime, they can even recite their Bible stories to us. We are blessed to have a roof over our head, food to eat and the Lord in our hearts everyday of our life.

Blogging has become an outlet for me and I have met quite a few people and enjoy every minute of it. Thank you everyone! I am not one to really make resolutions but we know what we want and how to accomplish it. Doug and I have decided to try and go out more, we realized how much we missed it on our anniversary. Guide our boys as they grow to become even stronger "Little Men of God". Give and help those as we can even if it is something little, every little thing counts. I am going to try and read the Bible in a year, it can be done with patience and prayer. Just to live life and love every moment of it because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

So much for not really doing resolutions, huh, guess I made myself a little list anyway. I hope that everyone had a great New Year's Eve and Day and I look forward to reading your blogs this upcoming year.
