Happy New Year!
This evening we'll be enjoying a big pot roast--part of the 1/8 cow we recently purchased. It's baking slowly in my big cast iron Dutch oven along with some potatoes, carrots, celery and onion, and filling the house with good smells.
Even though tomorrow is Sunday, we do plan to let the children stay up to see the ball drop (if they make it). They have a Veggie Tales movie to watch and we may get a family game of Rail Baron going after our nightly chapters of Little House. Now that we've finished Jotham's Journey, I'm looking for a new family read-aloud to start--any suggestions?
While I finally managed to get most of my Christmas cards mailed a week ago, I didn't get the ones for our church family finished. So sometime this evening I'm hoping to finish those up so I can put them in church mailboxes tomorrow. Better late than never, right?
I've been working on some New Year's resolutions/goals but don't have them quite finished yet. Will post more on that soon!
Wishing each of you a happy new year!
