Happy New Year 2012

This is going to be the year of organization and finishing my house. There are sooo many projects that need to be finished that I have decided to start with kitchen. Today I finished about 90% of the cupboards and getting them cleaned out. I did not realize have many extras I have of any one item. Five bags of garbage and donation items later, but it is looking good! I will post some pictures later.

Year of the Tiger 2010...

I am not sure what happened to the last year and 1/2. I was shocked when I saw that my last posting was January of 2009! Anyways, Happy (belated) Chinese New Year! I am going to make a conscious effort to post more frequently than once every year and a half.

Happy Chinese New Year!

For those of you who do not already know, this is the year of the ox. I have always been intrigued by other cultures, so I had to investigate what the characteristics are of the person born during the year of the ox. This is what I found:

Year of the ox: 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

People born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed. They are most compatible with Snake, Rooster, and Rat people (Chinese Culture Center).

Roxy's babies have arrived!

Here's Dozer, or Bowser, or Brutus, or whatever his new owner wants to call him. He's the big one of the bunch.

Aren't they just cute!?! They were born 1/16, so are a little over a week old now. The one on the far left is always sleeping on his back. It's is so cute seeing this little puppy belly up just a snoozin'. The one on the far right DJ calls Moo-Moo because "she is marked just like a cow." The second one from the right is Bowser, or Dozer, or Brutus. The name depends on the person you talk to.

Green Bags...

Have you all heard of the Green Bags for produce? I was skeptical when watching commercials, but my mother-in-law swears by them. While in Wisconsin for Christmas, she gave me a couple to take home and try. WOW, I am sold! My lettuce is on Day 8 still as crunchy as the first day. If I had not tried it myself, I never would have believed how great these bags really are. Check them out - they will save you money in the long run.

Happy New Year!

I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.

~ Anais Nin

This quote sums up my belief about new year's resolutions. If there is something I want to change about myself, I am not going to wait until a new year to do something about it. You never know what tomorrow will bring, if it is change you seek, do something about it today!

I hope you all have a very happy and healthy new year!

Wisconsin Pictures

Here are a few pictures of what we did in Wisconsin this Christmas break. We arrived at Al's parents on Monday before Christmas. There was approximately 12" on the ground, but shortly after arriving the clouds opened up and the snow came down in full force!

Snow man building...

and skiing...

We went skiing at Nordic Mountain the last day we were there. This was Callan's first time, she did great! Dalton was hooked on the thrill of the big hills. I took my time and enjoyed the scenery.

and snow angels...

and more snow angels...

and sledding!

Thanks to everyone for a great time!

Merry Belated Christmas!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays, we definately are having fun. Waupaca has received record snowfall for the December dating back to 1887 - WOW!! I think they have received approximately 50" so far this month with 6 more inches expected tonight. The kids have been sledding and making snowmen - what a great Christmas. When I get home and situated, I'll post pictures of our fun activities. Have a safe and happy new year!
