Happy New Year
Christmas was really nice. We went over to my cousin Renee's house for Christmas Eve dinner as well as lunch on Christmas day. After that, we headed down to my friend Lisa's house for Christmas dinner and to have a family sleepover. It was nice to be around close friends. Christmas is hard when you're clear across an ocean from your family, but when you have friends that feel as close as family, it helps.
New Years Eve was also a nice night. We headed to our friend's house the Thorne's. There were a few other families there. I love games, so it's always nice when you get together with friends for games. They had a really cool dance game on their Xbox connect (I'm not sure if that's what it's called. It's the one without a remote. It just picks up your movements with a sensor). I didn't realize I was such a good dancer. :)
New Years day was very quite and relaxing. We hung out at home all day and in the evening headed over to another friend's house the Davies' to play games again. All and all, it was a wonderful couple of weeks. Nice and relaxing. It's always good to get back to normal though. Hans started back to full days of work today, Eva will be going back to German Kindergarten tomorrow, and Gabe will have preschool in the morning. I'm kind of relieved to get back to some kind of routine.
I have decided to set a few goals for this year. One of them is to be more spiritual. I have decided to take the challenge of reading the Book of Mormon from front to back by Easter. I think that will be a nice way to jump start some spirituality in my life. Wish me luck!
