what a beautiful year it has been!!!
*insert beautiful picture here*
yesterday sophie (nana) took jones, boo, and starboy while i stayed home with binkins and otter pop took wolfie to the gardens to volunteer.  binkins got a few crafty presents for jesus' birthday and wanted to do some of them.  however, it's really hard for me to work with her one-on-one with four others begging for my attention at the same time.  the projects really require some undivided attention help, not just a point in the right direction help.  she got several last year too and i'm humble enough to tell you that some of them are still uncompleted... so, i asked her to stay with me and she was happy to!
otter pop dropped wolfie off with the others so then he, binks, and i brought in the new year together.  it was fun.  we watched a movie and then put in another to help us stay awake, but it didn't work.  i think we all fell asleep around 11:30-45, but the fireworks woke me up about 5 minutes in (11:50).  we waited until midnight, told each other all "happy new year", said a prayer, and went back to sleep.  all three of us in the same bed.  happy new year!
i slept great, thanks for asking.
we woke up at 6 and started our day.  and then i went back to sleep and started my day again at 8:45.  binkins made us eggs and i made hot chocolate (way too chocolate-y).
i hope you are healthy and happy.  spend time with your family and look for things that make you happy.  they're around.  our God is good.  smile.

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
