happy new year!

Welcome 2010! I have lots of ideas--not for "resolutions" exactly, but ideas for what direction I want to be heading in my life and in our family. Maybe I'll share them here on the blog in a few days. The theme for the year, I've decided, is "helping." We welcomed the new year with a sweet family party--just us, all the kids (teens included!), and Faith's friend Kaylyn. We played games, ate yummy food and sweets, watched a favorite movie after the boys fell asleep, made a list of "favorites" from the year (inspired by Soulemama's post), and generally had a rockin time.
Before that, we went on our annual trip to Meditation Mount to see the sunset and say goodbye to '009. Here are some scenes from there:


Happy New Year to all!

Watching the sunset with the family sound like such a great way to send off the old year.
Wishing you, Ken, and the rest of your family a great 2010!
