Christmas & New Year is a good time for us. No stress. No big meals.... just relaxing, cleaning up.... still reading our Advent....
not worrying about gifts.... or buying or wrapping....
Our older children went to a conference from Monday- Wednesday (today). It was just the three youngest, dh and I. So different without all of us. Nice time with the littles. We read some books together, played some board games..... had some good time of prayer.
For New Year's Eve... we have a fellowship at our church.... bringing in the New Year. For New Year's day we will all be here again.... through the weekend. We will have a big meal together, some deserts. My cheesecake didn't turn out for Christmas.... terrible! I realized I put fat free cream cheese in it by mistake.... yuck. LOL~ So I will try that one again. The kids will play and spend some fun time together.
Thinking about my goals for 2010. I also like to look back over 2009... and see what God has done. We do our prayer box. Each New Years we write our prayer requests down and put them in our prayer box.... leave them all year and take them out on the next New Years and read them. Seeing how God answered..... we also put in new ones.
Would love to hear how things are going this week at your home. What New Year activities will you be doing.... or what goals are you setting for 2010?
