We had a fun evening last night with friends - pizza party, silly string fight, fire, s'mores, fireworks, dance party, flashlight tag, sparkling cider and bellinis, more fireworks, Face Time with family and celebrating the dawn of a new year. No pictures for now, but I'm not going to let that stop me from reflecting on it.
As my eyes opened this morning, the rain tried to lure me back to bed, but I got up anyway. At 9:45! Okay, so that's not shocking, but what was shocking is that my hubs was also still in bed. I blame last night's bellinis.
We, like most families, have set resolutions for the year. We woke up with a renewed fervor for pursuing the Lord, organizing our lives, loving each other and relying on the Holy Spirit to be more like Jesus.
It was a nice first day of the year. Lots of family time, as the rain wouldn't let us out. Mochi soup, Rose Parade, family game time, reorganizing part of the house, cleaning some excess out, some video game time, family reading time, Star Wars Episode V, homemade ice cream sandwiches...does the day need to end?
2014...here's to a new year.
