I don't know about you but I am glad that the Holiday season is over. Don't get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving and Christmas but I am just over it. I couldn't wait to put up my Christmas tree and couldn't wait to take it down. I love spending time with my family. I have such a big family. My favorite part is listening to my husband read "T'was the night before Christmas" to our children. A tradition he took over once his grandpa passed away :(
It makes me so happy that even at 10 and 12 they will sit there and listen to their father read. I hope that this is a tradition that they carry on with their families. However I am NOT ready for them to even think about having families right now.
For the past several years my nephews come over and spend the night with us for New Year's Eve. We drink fake wine and the kids play on their tablets or Ipods. This year we decided to make cookies.
So with a New Year comes new roads, challenges, and adventures. I can't wait to see what this year brings. My daughter will graduate from 5th grade in May and I will have to children in Middle School. This really saddens me. Our son will start his last year of Middle school. I am not ready to have a HIGH SCHOOLER!!! We are trying to plan a family vacation to California. My husband and I have joined a gym to get healthier. What are some of your goals or resolutions for this year?
We all know by my last blog that I might be just a "Little" bit of a Colts fan! Well I got two tickets to go to the game this past Sunday. I had the task of picking who I wanted to take with me. My first pick of course was my husband however, he doesn't do well with crowds and didn't want to go. I thought about taking my mom but she is a jinx. Every time she watches the game they do bad or lose and I really didn't want to risk that. Well then there were my children. My 2 children. They are both big Colts fans as well. I sat and pondered about how I was going to take one and not the other and decided that maybe this was a bad idea and I should just take my brother but then I would have 2 angry children. So I weighed my options and decided to take my daughter. It was only fair since her brother is going on a Ski Trip to Michigan next weekend. So Ali and I took off for the game and arrived at 9:30am outside Lucas Oil Stadium. It was FREEZING. We went into the Colts Touchdown Corner and met Jim Sorgi. Ali got her face painted and took pictures of cardboard cutouts of T. Y Hilton, Reggie Wayne and Coach Pagano. When it was time to finally enter into the stadium that is when I saw my daughter's eyes light up. We had REALLY good seats. Lower Level row 15 in the end zone. You could see the players warming up and she was instagramming and taking pictures like you wouldn't believe. Coby Fleener at one point was only 10 yards away from her. She was too shy to yell out and ask for an autograph. Cory Redding passed us by as he was warming up. We shared a wonderful day together and I was extremely happy that she had the best time of her life.
May this year be the one in which all your wishes come true. The one in which your dreams may turn into reality and all your fears may fade away. Happy new year!
Until next time......
