So, since I am choosing to opt out of the year-end reminiscing (not that I have a problem with that-I think it is great, just not for me this year), I still wanted to close on a happy note. Today was a terrific day, and I hope that next year will contain a few more days like it. Nothing special, just spending time enjoying Joel and the kids. We did a little shopping (a lot of good days for me include a trip to Target) lunch out-compliments of a gift card (I love it when someone else pays!), lounging this afternoon with Joel, the kids playing in the snow, a tasty dinner and finally some family time together this evening cuddled on the sofa watching a movie. No stress, no pressure, nothing fancy. Just the way I like it. I know that the new year will hold a lot of changes for our family, but I am thankful for today.
The kids were delirious to see the snow once they woke up from rest time! It was getting dark quickly but they were not going to miss the chance to frolic.Carson doing his "cheese" face. Love his pink cheeks!
The only kind of angel he will ever be. ;) Taking his cue from Josie.
Jocelyn's snow angel. Kind of hard to see, but she did a really great job.
The making of the snow angel. She has been longing to do this, and it was the first thing she did when she went outside!
I hope your New Year is full of simple pleasures, family time, love and a few surprises. But most of all I hope it finds us all right in the middle of God's will. Happy New Year!
