Time for a New Year

With the New Year coming it is time for me to reevaluate my life.  What did I like about this past year and what did I not like.  What can I change and do different?  Should I change anything?  I am kind of happy at how my life has turned out so far.  Although there are some times I am not.  When I look at the whole picture, I think I have done well this year.  My main focus has been my family.  With having two young kids, a house and my cats to take care of life has passes by and I am stuck way in the back.  

Who am I kidding?  There is a lot to change.  I have a long list of things I would like to accomplish and try out.  Like this blog.  This is a whole new adventure for me.  I am getting into my crafts more.  I am knitting a sock!!  Want to see?  I just started knitting a year ago, but that is just here and there.  I hope to get faster and better as I go with the sock.

  I am painting a paint by number.  I like that, but it takes so long to do every detail and mixing the paints.  This painting will take me another year to finish.  That is how it works with a crafty brain like mine.  I have many projects going, and enjoy the all.   But it takes me forever to finish them.  And then I find something else to try.  That is the excitement of life.  That is what life should be based on.  Abatement for the next project!  If I can always keep that in mind, then this New Year will be fantastic.  Oh...
Another project is for me to find out more about myself.  Think I can do it?  I will see.  Only time will tell....
There seems to be a Rainbow in my future!

Oh What Fun!!! Halloween 2010

Sarah carving her first pumpkin!
What a fun time.  It was great that it happened on Sunday.  My Hubby was home, therefore we could do more then usual.  My sis came over and went trick or treating with us.  My Hubby handed out treats.
Lukas knows what he is doing with his pumpkin

Markus and my pumpkins.  Aren't they great!

 I like these times when it feels like everybody has come together for a fun time.  One of our neighbors was celebrating his B-day and gave all the adults a nice spiked drink.  It was great!  Everybody was so nice and enjoying the great night for some spooky fun. The kids really enjoyed it.  Sarah was a Giraffe and Lukas Batman.   They got way to much candy.  They had the most fun just going from house to house.  All the costumes were great and there really were no issues.  We all had a great time. 
Just about to go out and get all the goodies!

Getting Colder!

Lukas at the Pumpkin Farm in Niagara Falls with his SK class

The sun is out.  But we sure have enough wind.  Halloween is almost here.  Lukas is the most excited.  He will have a party and walk around in his costume tomorrow morning.  He will be Batman.  My boy is such a fun kid.  Everybody likes him at school.  All I ever hear is "Hi Lukas B"  from many of the kids around the school yard.  They call him Lukas B because last year there was another Lukas, (Lukas T) in his class.  It is so cute to hear because the other Lukas is in the other class, so they don't have to call him that, but they do. On top of being a fun kid he does so well in school.  His teacher says he is the quietest kid and the nicest kid in the class.  He is so helpful with everybody.  We could not have gotten a better boy from God.  We are absolutely blessed.

Whats Interesting?

My little girl and I took a walk to one of the local parks around here.  The trees are just so full of color.  I just can't get enough of Fall.  I wish it lasted longer then Winter.  It is so much fun watching children interact with each other.  Sarah found another little girl to play with, we were the only ones at the park.  Sarah has such a personality.  She will play, but she does her own thing.  Its not like they are not welcome to join her, but Sarah is in her own world.  She is very nice about it, she just could not be bothered to follow along with somebody else's games.  But she loves other kids.  She had a good time.

Then tonight Markus was away, so I was with the kids.  So we played a game of Hide and Seek in the dark.  Its a nice warm dark night.  My kids love that game.  Especially at night.  I played it as a kid all the time.  I guess it kind of takes me back.  I love it when I try to hide somewhere and Sarah has to be right with me.  We have a good time.  These are the times I wish I could put this in a bottle and save it.

Today is a lazy Saturday.  Lots to do, but I want to go have fun!  Maybe we will go for a hike.  Enjoy the nice colors on the leaves and the sounds in the woods.  My kids will love it.  They enjoy going for hikes.  I think it is one of our favorite things to do.  Then we will see what the rest of the day holds.

Hope your day lets you to enjoy it in a fantastic kind of way.
