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 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."|
|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.|
