Party like it is 2010

Happy New Year!!  2009 closed out a pretty great decade in my book!  I would go into detail but as my Mom always says when I start to tell a story of my college days "Stop, still too soon for that"....

We celebrated New Year's at my sister's house up North.  We made it till 9pm which technically allowed us to watch the NY Ball drop.  Colby and Wes taught Sophie and Ceci how to pop party poppers and snap its. 

We decided to steal a page from Tracy's blog.  Last year Tracy and Wes decided on a list of things to accomplish in 2009.  Colby and I were able to take part in a few of the activities and we enjoyed it so much we decided we need a list for 2010.  So, here goes...

1. Visit three beaches
2. Pick Blueberries
3. Pick Raspberries
4. Ride our bicycles down the cedar river trail to the park and have a picnic (4.5 miles each way)
5. Make a recipe from a cookbook once a week

11. Sleep completely through the night 7pm till 5:30am. Currently 7pm to 2am, quick snack and then back down until we get her up at 5:30am for work.

These are some hefty plans but all and all should be a lot of fun!  If you want to take part in any of our adventures just let me know as I am starting to plan out a few of them!

My New Year's wish for you! 

I wish you Health... So you may enjoy each day in comfort.

I wish you the Love of friends and family... And Peace within your heart.

I wish you the Beauty of nature... That you may enjoy the work of God.

I wish you Wisdom to choose priorities... For those things that really matter in life.

I wish you Generosity so you may share... All good things that come to you.

I wish you Happiness and Joy... And Blessings for the New Year.

I wish you the best of everything... That you so well deserve.

Wonderful posting! There are many items on your list that we would love to be a part of, or help plan. Here's to another great decade. (We have the Planet Earth series)

Ken also mentioned that his list for the year looks very similar to Elle's - go more hair, sleep thru the night, eat more vegetables....

Great list - 2010 sounds like a fun year at the Sheet's. You know there is a good reason #13 was a banned book for teenagers?

Tracie said...

Sounds like a packed 2010. That is a great idea; Marc actually mentioned making a list too. We didn't get to far on that one though. Maybe 2011 :-)

Great list. Please include me on the list of zoo adventures. I have a craving for Wing Dome. Hmmm.

The 2010 list is a great idea. I just might have to borrow that one for the Loyds. :) Looks like you will have a very adventurous year!
