Christmas Eve

I normally don't participate in blog hops, but I am doing this one.  It's hosted by the Aloha! Mark Koopmans Says Hi from HI blog.  The premise is to "set aside a moment to reflect on the year that was and share some hopes for next year, in 100 words.  Me? Keep to 100 words?  I normally do my year end reflection and hope for the following year on NYE so I will try keep this one short.

2013 was a lot of things, but for me it was mostly about bonding & spending time with the kids.  That was the best part. 

My amazing little family.  


My hope for next year?  That I can take his name, spend more time with the kids and that we can continue to live in this awesome rental home. 


Have a joyous holiday!!
