So here we go bloggy peeps - let's get this new year started out with our first post for the month and a start of great blogging for the year.
First off sorry the link was wrong to Jodi's blog - it's fixed now and it should take you right there if you haven't already found her. I swear that linked worked when I tested it. I know it's frustrating when you can't get something to link you to where you want to go.
Oh my goodness I was so touched to read what all of you wrote regarding the last post I did on my word for the year - and I want to do a proper post about them - so I will leave my thoughts until then. Thank you all for stopping by and sharing - they touched my heart. I will be picking a number for a winner based on those that left a comment and will announce it tomorrow.
Did everyone have a nice New Year's Eve? We got together with a few friends last night (we missed several who couldn't make it - but I know they were having fun and sorry to the one who was sick - we missed you) Anywho - we got together for some appetizers, delicious soup and some fun games - AND - we made it to midnight lol. In our group of friends - 3 of the guys are trying their hands at brewing beer - so we had a taste testing of 4 home brews and 1 store bought. Here's my board - I said give me teeny tiny amounts (not a beer drinker)
I picked my guesses based on color and "the sniff test". It was fun and these guys are doing a great job (my sniffer told me so lol) - the least favorite was the store bought one - go figure. What a fun evening of games, laughs and friendship and a great way to end the year. We are blessed with some wonderful friends and we toasted to that and a blessed 2014 at the ding of midnight.
This morning we got a call that Ellie was in need of a sitter - Daddy was sick in bed (with the stomach flu not a hang over lol) and Momma needed to get to work if she could - and of course daycare is closed on New Year's day - so we hopped into the white rocket and headed to Fargo to spend the day with our little peanut
Oh my goodness what a joy she is and dang that girl is funny - we laughed the whole day. She started walking last weekend and is on the go now all the time. We were able to witness lots of those little steps and moves. Is there anything more precious as you watch these little peanuts discover new things they can do. What a great way to start out the new year - a day spent with her.
So here's to a NEW YEAR - let 2014 be the best one yet.
