Well, I think you all get that I love taking pictures, that I like to have fun, and that usually means me being silly. Â So, this year when I went home I discovered that my mom had found this amazing antique carriage and gave it a new home on our property. I thought, â€œWhat a perfect prop for some pics!â€ Â
It will soon be a New Year, and with it come new resolutions; new hopes and promises for our future. Â I like to set an intention instead of listing resolutions. I pick a theme of what I will work on within myself, and I choose a handful of words that will be my guide for the year. Â I’d love to hear about your intentions, themes and resolutions! Â So head to the comment section and tell me what they are (Iâ€™ll share mine too). Â Maybe we can keep ourselves accountable for the promises we’ve made!
For Christmas Dinner we were a total of 23 people. The dining room was crowded full of family-siblings, parents, cousins, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, grandparents aunts, uncles and kids!!!! The hum of family in action is a sound I cherish! Although I had been in charge of dinners leading up to Christmas the Christmas dinner duties were shared by all! It was beyond deelish. I think I could taste the love!
Family, food, lots of giggles and late night talkingâ€¦that is what Christmas is all about. Â There is nothing better. Â Lately, since I have fallen in love with cooking, I end up organizing and preparing most of the dinners. We pretty much eat at home and everyone pitches in for cooking, market runs and clean up. This year was no different I took charge of the menu planning and most of the cooking until Christmas when my mom did most of the dishes with help from Rhonda, Ross and myself with my cousin Michah as our roving sou-chef. On average there were about 17 people a nightâ€¦pretty normal for us. And I hate to toot my own horn but â€˜TOOT-TOOT!â€™Â we had some wonderful meals!
