This past Christmas was a chance for our little family to start a new tradition. Mr. B and I decided that in order for our kids to open their gifts, they had to give something before they could receive.
Now, with a four year old, a 16 month old and a six month old, this act of kindness had to be a small gesture. One that they could preform, learn a small lesson, then get to the gifts. Dad and I decided this year, the children had to take food to the local police station on Christmas morning in their pajama’s before they could even touch one single thing from Santa.
The act was very well received. Here is a picture for you.
Isn’t that the cutest elf you’ve ever seen!
And as far as resolutions go, it’s that time again. Time to buckle down, get serious, and make some new and improved changes for the New Year. Everyone makes resolutions whether we outright claim we do or not. Everyone has something they want to change. I have several!
I want to write two novels in 2015.
I want to lose thirty pounds-forty would be better.
And I want to take a vacation.
The vacation part sounds the easiest of all, but in all honesty, will probably be the most difficult to achieve with our schedules.
What do you want to achieve for 2015?
