Christmas has come and gone.  This year was a wonderful Christmas, low-key and quiet.  Christmas Eve, we had angels and shepherds that acted out the Christmas story.  We began a new Christmas tradition by having breakfast for dinner.  Last year on Christmas Eve, I burnt the intended dinner, and ended up making breakfast.  We liked it so much that it is now how we celebrate Christmas Eve.  Christmas Day was filled with motor scooters, Legos, and Shrinkydinks (I cannot wait to get into that toy).  We celebrated at our home with some of our military family, and ate an Italian feast.  It was a joyous Christmas and it reminds me how truly lucky I am.  Christmas is not my favorite holiday, but now that I have my children, I enjoy it more each year.

I am taking the rest of the week off to spend some time with my family and make some changes around here.  I read somewhere that “goals are dreams with deadlines” and before the new year, I am going to sit down and spend some time planning out my goals for 2012.  I have a feeling that it is going to be a great year.

I’ll see you all in a few days.
