Well the end of the year is fast approaching and with it the change that must come.. I read about resolutions of others and think of myself... What would I want to resolve to do .. I think it would be the same thing that I always resolve to do, not just on New Years, but always. ... I resolve to become a better person... everyday to grow a little, every day to learn a little... Every day to let the ones around me know that I care ... To give to others that need it..To be the friend I would want for myself.
This year has past by quickly for me .. I have lived in 3 different states, traveled many many miles, renewed relationships with family, and given to others.. All in all it has been a pretty good year...
Christmas was wonderful and I got everything I could have wanted... I am blessed in so many ways.. and my kids .. well they are spoiled..lol..
We were able to give a few wonderful gifts to Mom & Dad and see the look on their faces like they were kids again.. To bring tears to Moms eyes with a gift is the best present I could get... and you should have seen dad playing with his tools..lol..It made me so happy to make them happy.. Unfortunately I don't have pictures because this year I resolved to enjoy everything rather than trying to run around capturing it... Kris did take a few though... :)
The kids reactions to getting their bikes and Alora getting her little atv thing was wonderful.. Mcleod thought his bike was for Kris..lol.. Alora looks at her atv and says .. Mommy? Mine? I said yes Alora, it is yours. Then she proceeds to run up to me with her arms spread to hug me.. <3 It was wonderful! Tristan gave his normal overly enthusiastic response to everything he received, very appreciative, and very loud..lol..
Next year we will be moving again around Christmas time and we won't have so many presents, but I can guarantee it will be just as good, if not better than it was this year.. :)
