Home Depot Workshop for kids January 2nd

Home Depot Workshop for kids

See link below:
Happy New Year!!!
Yesterday I made a "toast" with the boys with some Sprite and asked them what they want to accomplish in 2010.
Jack wants to play more video games.
Alex did not know and Luke wants to ride his bicycle better and without training wheels.

My New Years Resolutions are:
  • To be more patient with my children and to try to have more fun with them.
  • To save more and pay off more debt.
  • To keep on a better cleaning routine of the house.
Hope your New Years is full of fun times with your family.

This morning we started our new year with sore throats and hot chocolate so we are having a pj day filled with a Looney Tunes Marathon.
