Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I was going to title this post … “you know resolutions really start on the day the kids go back to school, right?!”, but then I remembered that I didn’t start all my resolutions today so I canned that title.  I did start a few …. and there is always tomorrow.

We just got back from a fun few days in Minnesota.  It wasn’t as cold this year …. which was good, but there also wasn’t any snow until the last day.  It snowed about 4 inches on New Years Eve.  Jacob, Savannah and Bill stayed out until 1:30 in the morning building a fort for a pretty big snowball fight.  Caroline, Brittany and I just stayed inside and watched the ball drop in Times Square on TV.  🙂
We still had a little time after church and before our flight on Sunday for a little more snow time …

We had a good time visiting family AND watching Baylor win the Alamo Bowl … yes, that was very good.
One of our favorites in Minnesota is “Christmas Pie”.  It’s worth getting cold just to have a slice.

We took the traditional … “in front of the tree” picture …

 And played in the Baerg family carpet ball tournament.  I don’t want to say too much about it except that I beat Bill.  HAHA.

We got together one night with Bill’s extended family.  It was actually the night of the Baylor game and we hated to dine and dash but it was a bowl game and the Heisman trophy winner (RG3!) was playing and there are certain things that call for dining and dashing … like that.  I did take a picture of this cinnamon roll type cake.  One of Bill’s cousins has brought it for years.  I think it’s kind of “pintresty”.
So now it’s back to reality.  The kids went back to school today and I started on a few of my resolutions.  I’m normally kind of private about goals and such but I heard today that part of making yourself accountable is telling someone your goals … so in the coming days …. well, the blog is going to hear about some of mine and I’d love to hear some of yours too.
Looking forward to 2012!
