A New Year without resolutions


Celebrations, Life around home / Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

The holiday season is successfully over and I just sent my boys out the door for their first day of school in twenty-fourteen. Successfully over, I say, because by dint of careful rationing the buckeyes lasted two weeks and the party mix a whole month. And nobody got hit with a bat in any vital parts during the piΓ±ata fest though we had some close calls. And I had to cry a few times from worship.

A most excellent holiday season. And now I get to rest, with quiet snow outside and my boys happily back in school, with sewing projects soon to be humming on my machine and a cup of hot tea to nurse my headache.

How was your Christmas? What do you look forward to next? I’d love to hear.

It was a good Christmas, with my family all together for the first time in three years. Next I look forward to my first baby, supposed to be born in March. A little boy. Very exciting and scary all at the same time.

We missed a major ice storm here by about 12 hours – headed to West Virginia for a delightful week of too much chocolate and introducing nieces and nephews to the old tricks – you know, “the ghost hovers”, “foreign relatives”, and “the airplane trick”. In 2014 I look forward to some “real travel” again… Arkansas for Calvary Bible School and Jamaica for A Capella Choir Camp.

Our Christmas was filled to the brim with family, fun, and food. Now that our month-long guests have left, our house seems bigger and quieter, and I’m enjoying that. I’m looking forward to normal life in January.

It’s nice to see you back. πŸ™‚

Our Christmas was filled with family. Touched with a lot of hurt (friend dying… gramps on his deathbed, people close to me hurting etc.) but also touches of joy and delight in each other. There was also all that scrumptious food, the midnight rook game, and the random food fight between us ‘grown’ Wengerd kids πŸ™‚

I chose 2 words that I hope to know more about by the end of 2014. I want to “Understand Love” to a much deeper degree.

Really good to have you back!

We had a wonderfully, relaxing Christmas season! We spent lots of time to just relax and be together as a family.

Now I am looking forward to January; the one month I can hope for a whole let less going on. After that come Feb.(always crazy) and then school starts winding down and all the busyness that comes with that, but for now I have January. And hopefully it will be filled with sewing, reading and long evenings at home. πŸ™‚

Christmas was stressful this year (too busy schedule, broken down car, travel delay). I’m looking forward to quiet house-y days in January and dreaming about a garden and where we’ll live come spring.
