Happy New Year!!

Typically, we don't do much for New Years Eve.  We will usually watch the ball drop in nyc on tv at 11pm and then head to bed!  But this year, we decided to host a little party at our house!!  The big boys were really excited which just makes it that much more fun!!  We made s'mores, did some small fireworks, the kiddos had a silly string fight and we enjoyed a fun evening with good friends!
(i was having so much fun that i kinda forgot to take many pics...oops!)

silly string war! =)
I'm not much of a resolution kind of girl.  But this time of year does always lead me to spend some time reflecting ~ the successes, the trials, the triumphs of the year past.  This year i am choosing one word to focus on in every area of my life.  Joy.  I want my home to be filled with Joy.  I want to choose Joy each day regardless of my circumstances. I want to grow closer to my Savior ~ to be a little more like Him when 2013 comes to a close. 
Praying a happy, healthy, love & joy filled 2013 for each of you!!

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
~Psalm 90:14~
