Se7en Are Ready For New Year…

December 31st, 2010 · 14 Comments

It is early morning here… 10AM… That’s early for us!!! Anyway, tomorrow morning on the first we will be doing our usual New Year Tree Party… and I am ready for waffles for breakfast:


My kids have decided it is a good night for a sleepover, which means a tumble of sleepy heads spending the night on the floor instead of in bed… Oh there are big plans afoot:

  1. The crafts are sorted…

I don’t know where they got all these ideas from but I have other plans… of a more exhausting nature… and I have all day to implement them…


And I could do with some help making fortune cookies…


And I have a secret cache of party supplies ready to go on the tree when they drop!!!


And more important I have a fresh new moleskin… waiting to be packed with new blogging ideas!!!


I am off to find the water bottles and backpacks… Hope you have a lovely day… waiting…

    Happy New Year!

    Thank you and your sponsors for the Fabulous Bible! Just awesome! Great for doing thru the Bible in a year…because it’s right in there (can’t misplace it!)

    And I’m looking forward to seeing the moleskin as soon as it’s been illustrated. Ha!
