Besides our epic family game night,
the 12 grapes at midnight
and our firework extravaganza
(the neighbors-not us, ha!)
Auld Lang Syne singing
and of course a good toast!
We started one a new one this year
and I hope we continue it.
I enjoyed doing this with the kids a lot.
I picked up a poster board
while last minute shopping on
I had no idea what I was going to do with it,
but I knew I wanted to create something.
Something that we could look at all year
and be inspired. Something that would remind us
that this year we promised ourselves that we would
Be. Do. Hope. Have. Create. Explore. Adventure.
Both as individuals and as a family.
So with this white poster board in hand
and my harebrained scheme,
I was off…
Create we did.
We started at 6:00 PM
and at the top of every hour
we wrote something for 5-10 minutes
This was our first year doing this.
I’m sure it will evolve, but it was a lot of fun
and all 4 kids enjoyed it.
I look forward to doing this for years to come and seeing how it changes,
what words/quotes/pictures they come up with as they grow.
