{Something I "Pinned" & Actually Did}

 I am not sure if I am the only one who "pins" and then. . . out of sight. . . out of mind.
 BUT this is one pin that stuck. 
 Its a miracle! 
 I believe what I saw was a "You write Me - I Write You".  
 I started out with that concept and I was writing. . the kids were writing. . . I was writing back. . .and then. . . the kids weren't responding or vise verse. . . I didn't want it to be "chore like". . . so now. . . I am the author.  
I write.
  I jot down simple little things. 
Something they said or did.
Somewhere we went. 
Or sometimes just how I am feeling at the moment.
 If they ever want to pick it up and write they can, but  mainly its me. 
I don't mind if they read them now or later. 
 Or much later.
  It makes me no difference.
  Its just something I want them to have tucked away.
I love tucking things away. . .

{Yes, its the New Year. . .}

 and I am still sharing my Christmas with you!  January came in roaring with cold and ice! It hasn't spared us much on the weather side but I hear some warmer temps are soon to arrive. 
 I honestly forgot to look back to see if I have shared about our Christmas but we did enjoy our family time and friends.   I am relishing this down time with my kids.  Since football season has been over we have been involved in ZERO activities.  Lily has tumbling for an hour on Thursdays but other than that it is quiet around here.  
Can I just say this is my first year to mess with this deco-mesh stuff.  It is fun!  It really adds alot too!  Makes up for the missed fluffing and lack of ornaments if that happens to be a problem.  This was my kitchen/dining room this year.  Next year I think I will move this motif to Carson's room and do something different.  Maybe.

Here is my short list of things on my 2014 agenda. . . in no particular order. . . these are just my present thoughts. . .
Date Nights with The Mr.  
Quiet Time (but with a scenic twist)
Lunch Dates with my Lady Friends
Praying with The Mr. 
Making a "Get Ready" table in my bedroom
Hang Pictures (Eek! Maybe.)
Reading with my Babies (yes. babies.)
