“Hobbes: Are you making any resolutions for the new year?
Calvin: Resolutions? ME?? Just what are you implying? That I need to change?”
It’s a new year! I can not believe how much faster time seems to be going by every year. I have been blogging for a whole four months now! I want to thank all of you who read my silly stories and especially those of you who make my day by leaving me a comment now and then. I also want to thank my mom Frieda who edits most of my posts for me. They are always much better after she has looked at them! It sounds like I’m giving an acceptance speech for some fictitious award. 🙂 No, but really, this would not be as much fun if it weren’t for you!
Below find my final thoughts on our Christmas trip:
Sunday was our last day to spend with my parents in South Texas.
Ready for church Sunday morning. The look on my mom’s face…priceless!
After we’d been home a couple of hours, I asked the girls to tell me what was their favorite part of the trip. Their answers were so typical of their personalities.
Faith age nine said, “Oh there wasn’t anything exciting. It was just a regular old trip.” (She wonders why I call her Eeyore.)
Joy age six said, “Watching the Barbie movie.” …that she had just been watching when I called her to the table. For Joy there is only the present.
Grace age four thought a minute and said, “My favorite thing was decorating ginger bread houses at Aunt Sara’s house!” She’s my thinker.
I wish you all a Happy New Year!
Now that is priceless! Happy New Year to you and your family
Cool tie! And I love the fact that all the kids have such different personalities – it definitely keeps life interesting…
Happy New Year! Your girls’ responses were too cute!
It’s so fun to ask the kids the same questions and listen to their personalities in their different answers.
awesome tie, dude!
So funny I nearly spit out my tea when I saw your husbands tie! I love what your girls said about their trip, they sound so cute.
Happy New Year!

Oh, wait! I forgot to ask you what your mom’s name is. If she went to the Guatemalan boarding school, and there was only one, and I went there, too… What is her name? Maybe I know her! Talk about a small world!
Happy New Year, Esther. I’ve so enjoyed reading your stories about your family and your comments on my blog as well.
Looking forward to more in the coming year! 🙂
Happy New Year Esther! Mine are 8, 6 & 4… almost the same as yours! They all turn again in the Spring! Blessings to you and your family 🙂
