New Year and Late Christmas Post

I've never been one to make bold new starts in January.  Sometimes I make a resolution, sometimes not.    This year I'm really giving the new year a fresh start in my life.  I plan to be more proactive in several areas and I'm off to a good start.  Okay, I know we have just finished the first full week of January, but I'm feeling optimistic.

I'm not making any commitments to blog more yet.  First, I need to work on getting my life in order, then I can work on consistently chronicling it.  

Moving backwards for a moment,  I didn't take a lot of pictures this year during Christmas.  It somehow seemed a whirlwind this year.  I'll share a few of those I did take though.  I hope your family enjoyed a wonderful holiday season and are off to a wonder filled new year.

My beautiful mom 

My daughter's family went to the mountains for Christmas, but I did get a shot of them in the Christmas parade before they left.

Here is Belle telling Santa secrets.

This gumdrop tree at my brother and sister-in-law's house is a sentimental reminder of the ones my Mimi used to have at Christmas when we were growing up.  The gumdrops we sneaked off those trees always tasted better than any others.

Here is Pooh waiting to see Santa.  He later decided that he didn't want to talk to the "big hairy monster."

This is part of my husband's family that we got to visit with during Christmas.  I so hate I didn't get a picture of my nephew and his fiancee before they left!  It's been a while since we got to be together with all of them for Christmas, so that made this year very special.

Lots of smiles here with my son and three of the kids.

These little cars were really a hit!  To tell the truth, I want one. 

This is as close to snow as we got in our part of Dixieland.

Here our daughter-in-law and our sweet grand baby share a snuggle before Christmas dinner.
