Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Last night, to mark the end of one year and the start of another, we let the kids stay up WAY past their bedtimes and lit a bunch of shit on fire in our front yard.


I will use pictures of that occasion to mask the fact that, instead of writing a real blog post, I’m just blurting out some random, sort-of-relevant facts.

I launched the first incarnation of this blog seven years ago today.


I didn’t do enough writing in 2012.

I will do more writing in 2013.

Wonder Woman & Jayna sparkle it up

I love my family.

Wonder Twin powers: activate.

I’m going to do my damnedest to make this coming year a special one.

Happy New Year!

I hope you have a Happy New Year, peeps.

    Happy New Year to you and your lovely family. What fun you had judging by those photos and how wonderful you had snow! Envious. :)

    The love you have for your family is evident in both the words you write and the pictures you post. Happy new year – may it be an amazing one.

    You need to write more! I’ve missed your writing this year. You are clearly talented and should use your gift!

    Happy New Year my friend! I resolve to get my ass over here more often and keep in touch. This was a crazy year. So glad to see you all looking so happy. Equally happy to see that you didn’t blow yourself up with the fireworks.
