Anyway, we are hoping for a good year around here! 2012 was tough, I sure hope 2013 is better. We rang in the New Year with a small sleepover party for the kids. They each invited a friend and we ate snacks, played games, danced, and stayed up to see the ball drop. It was a lot of fun! My kids are still talking about how much fun they had.
I am a little disappointed that the holidays are already over, but I am looking forward to Valentine's Day. I know a lot of people think it is a cheesy holiday and it's a lame excuse for flower and chocolate companies to make some money. I see their point, but I don't see what's wrong with a special day to show someone how much you love them. I always get the kids something for Valentine's Day too, and we make pink cupcakes. I just think it is a lot of fun!
I am also looking forward to an upcoming consignment sale where I will be selling some of the kids' old clothes. This will be my 2nd time selling. It is a great way to make some extra cash! I also love buying stuff at the sale - they usually have some great deals! Plus it's all stuff I would just throw away otherwise. Why not make some extra money?
This post is very random and kind of pointless. I am hoping to make my blog more of an online journal for myself along with a family scrapbook. Jenny told me she wants to start a blog too. She's only seven! I told her I would think about it. Obviously it would be private. I think it might be a good "diary" for her and it could help improve her typing and writing skills. Do any of your kids have their own blogs?
I really need to get going - the kids are in bed and I can hear them talking. Time to go tell them to be quiet. Happy New Year, y'all!
