I am practicing for the coming year on keeping up with my blog better. I never make New Year's Resolutions, because I don't keep up with them and then feel like a failure. I decided to change that this year. I have found some very inspiring websites, blogs and printed material and will just keep re-reading and hopefully stay inspired. I can do this.

I have figured I don't need a new scrapbook page for each and every blog entry, which takes off a lot of the pressure I was putting on myself. So just for interest sake here is a photo of Maggie opening one of her gifts this year. She always opens all her own presents, and then tries to help anyone who will let her, open theirs!

She is such a love.

Merry Christmas

It has been a wonderful Christmas. I got wonderful gifts this year; Gabe got me an upright mixer and it is terrific, and the girls all went in together and got me a Kindle! How fun is that? The weather has been pretty good, although not enough snow for my liking. At least the ground is white.

Everyone came for Christmas Eve, except for Jeff who is now living in Arizona, and Kathleen who lives in Louisville, KY. Then we all had dinner here on Christmas day; I make Roast Pork and all the fixings and then the girls pitched in and did the clean-up. What a blessing.

The little ones all did really good, although the holidays are hard one them. Here is Teagan after a bath at Nana's, having a snack and waiting for everyone to come to open presents!
