HAPPY New Year!

Happy Holidays from Pickwick House!  We've been out of the office since before Christmas due to a loss in our family.  Will's father passed away.  Thank you for all of your kind thoughts and patience during this time.   

With time and life being so precious, I decided to take some extra time off while all the kids are home. Taking my own advice about SLOWING Down from that last post.  I hope you have done some of the same. 

Starting mid week, I'll be back in full swing.  In the mean time, here are some sweet photos taken by Heather Cherie Photography, from a recent setup we did for KY3 about creating fun for the kids during Christmas, New Years, and winter break.  

We used our large chalkboard as a master plan for things to do over the break.  Here are a few things we wrote on the master task list:
Listen to the Music 
Dance at night by candle light  
Save boxes from Christmas to build and create things with {AKA:  Boxing Day...Make a doll bed, a dollhouse, a boat.}  Bake  
Host a game night  
Celebrate any time you can 
Take lots of photos  
Go sledding  
Do something nice for someone  
Write Thank-yous    

Garlands are all the rage.  These gold stars are actually a ninja star origami made by my friend's nine year old son, Anthony.   I'd hoped to add that to today's post, but blogger is giving me problems.  Stay tuned for that!

We made our own gift wrap using black poster board and interior white wall paint we had on hand.

What are you doing for NYE?  We are spending the early evening with the kids and then we {Will and I are gussying up}.  We will head up to Pickwick House to ring in the New Year with family and neighbors.

I am so thankful for all of you.

I'm also excited to get started on a New Year.  I hope you have a wonderful New Year too!  May it be YOUR year.  One that's filled with peace, love, abundance, joy, and may it be full of promise!

Much Love to you All!
