First New Year's Resolution

My first resolution for the New Year 2008 is to create a family blog! This blog will be a diary for our family, the H family, on what we're doing, where we're going, and all the various things that go on in a family of 6.

I will start with Christmas and the New Year. Christmas wasn't as great as usual. For starters, our grandparents were unable to join us as they usually do due to a last minute illness. But that actually turned out well, because from about Dec. 20th til the 27th, one or more of us was suffering from the stomach flu! The kids still were able to participate in the pageant at church, which was nice. Some of us were able to attend the nextdoor neighbor's party, which was really fun! But the rest of the holiday was pretty uneventful, except for a trip to the ice rink-fun!

We celebrated the New Year at a great party some friends had. They even invited kids (with babysitters to help). Even little BBH, age 2, danced the night away and blew horns with everyone at midnight! It was a great way to start 2008!
