Happy New Year!!!!

Hope you guys had a great new year. Things here have been busy but oh so good lol. Christmas was great . The weather not so much lol . I store all of the gifts in the other house . So one has to walk down the driveway to get to it. In the middle of an ice/rain storm. OK so picture this . Buddy and I head down to start hauling stuff. Sissy is keeping her eye on the sleeping bear, Hubby is working on clearing the 2 inches of ice from the driveway. Did I tell you when I mean down I really mean down... all of the houses here are on top of a hill. So picture me and Buddy 2 inches of ice and a driveway that if you slide your going to end up shooting across the main road at a high rate of speed.OK so we start to working our way down ...him holding me up lol lol . Than we remembered last year when the kids put out the rain deer food ( in an ice storm lol ) Sissy started to slide down the hill and Buddy had to save her lol . Well we started laughing ...we got laughing so hard that we couldn't walk . We finally pulled ourselves together and got moving lol. We made it with out getting hit by a bus lol .The kids loved everything. ( Bear was a bit over whelmed got to much stuff I guess ....note to self less stuff for next year). Sissy made breakfast than the kids where off to their dads. Then we just hung out and eat. The duck came out really good. We made cranberry chestnut stuffing and covered it in home made cranberry sauce.The rest of the week flew by with visits from friends and family .New Years Eve here was quiet, hell we hit the bed at 10. Yesterday was spent just hanging out . I've been getting some new goals set for this year ( more on that in another post). Right now we're going to spend the next 3 days getting ready for school to start again.

So with that I'm off to hang with the kid and get some stuff done. Til next time have a great day.
