It Was Merry & Pretty Calendars

I can hardly believe Christmas has already come and gone!  It went so fast and was so busy that I officially failed at taking Christmas photos.  Now I feel guilty about it all, as I have hardly a thing to show for this special time.  Besides lacking photos, our Christmas was full.  A Christmas Eve meal with family and Pioneer Woman side dishes, hot Wassail, singing, games, comedy, dessert with my brother and his family and Husband's family (it is so nice to be able to combine families during special occasions), friends, naps, sleeping in late, reading, and of course, the full meaning of the holiday are the many things we enjoyed last weekend. 

We are so thankful. 

With the New Year fast approaching, there are a few things on my mind:

1) Our plans.  I'm hearing it is going to go something like...our house, Dance Dance Revolution, Ping Pong,
music, and fondue.  Having children and having friends who have children has given us a whole new outlook on ringing in the New Year.  We like to do it family style.  The kids may be asleep, but we like to at least have them near as we ring in the New Year.
2) My New Year's resolution(s).  I'm working on these.  I don't want to go overboard or anything, but I like to gear myself up for a challenge or two during the New Year. 

3) My 2012 calendar and planner:  Is it just me or isn't it fun getting a new calendar for the new year?!

I've been eyeing these...

I'm also loving this twelve month calendar from Little Things Studio.

Pretty calendars get me even more excited about the New Year, you?

Oh i really like that horse calender. Very cute. My new calender is full of different kinds of birds. Anyways, thanks for your comment over at "My Daddy." I was so glad to hear that. My dad has told me stories of when he would take you out with his friends sometimes, and when he would babysit you. And also megan and lindsey liked when you helped with watching them. I think its great that our family is close and we have such a bond. And yes i am very lucky to have doug as my dad.(: But anyways, i hope you have a great new years, and hopefully we will see eachother sometime throughout the new year! 2012 here we come!
Love always,

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
