I am FINALLY ready to begin 2011. I am only a week late, but better late than never. New Years Eve was celebrated at home with my family and a few friends. We enjoyed swimming, Jacuzzi , games and a Just Dance contest among the kids (and a few adults too). New Years Eve is also my anniversary. My husband and I celebrated 12 years of wedded bliss (got’ca anyone married knows it’s not all FUN & GAMES). We have had our fair share of ups and downs, but I can say we are on an UP SLOPE and it’s wonderful. 2011 is the year of growth for our family, we have everyone on board (yes, all 6 of us) and we are going to grow like never before and it’s a very exciting time. My husband and I are starting the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University at a local church and we are taking on Dave’s motto LIVE LIKE NO-ONE ELSE, so later we can LIVE LIKE NO-ONE ELSE. The kids are working on many of their own personal challenges and accomplishments too.
