New Year Wishes

May the stars carry shine upon you,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears.
and above all,
May this New year be wonderful!

Happy New Year!

Please tell me I'm not the only one….

who let's things in the fridge too long…
I think there was something living and breathing in there….
Left overs become… well, they become something unrecognizable.

It was about time to clean out the Fridge!

The dishwasher ended up full of tupperware.
The recycle bin is filled with empty plastic containers and soda bottles.
AND
I am proud to say my fridge is clean!  Yeah ME!


But it's also empty.  

Now I need to go grocery shopping… 



Have a great weekend and Happy New Years!

Reading Royals

Last night the family attended a Reading Royals hockey game.  The Reading Royals are a professional ice hockey team that currently plays in the Atlantic Division of the ECHL (Eastern Conference Hockey League)
For those who don't know much about Hockey, the NHL is the main professional league.  Under the NHL is the AHL (American Hockey League).  Under that league is the ECHL. 


The Royals play their home games at the Sovereign Center located in downtown Reading, Pennsylvania. 

THE FANS!
RK (can't see), Zachary, Max and Brandon.

Lauren and Me.




THE ENTERTAINMENT!
Slapshot (the mascot) shoots T-shirts to the crowd during intermission.



THE TEAMS!



CHECKING!

THE FIGHTS!


CELEBRATING!

Going to the Reading Royals is an inexpensive way for fun family entertainment.  We had a blast!

  Sorry about the netting in the way of the pictures.  It's there for the safety of the fans to avoid injury of flying pucks!

VFC - Oct to Dec 2011

Wednesday Hodgepodge




1. Share something you loved about your Christmas Day.

Watching Corbie (my new kitty) play with the wrapping paper.  It was hysterical!  

2. You get to put five items in a time capsule to be opened in 100 years, what items would you choose and why?

Assuming the time capsule is for future family members I would chose items that described what our lives were like and things about our family.  A video camera with tapes I've recorded since the boys were born.  The family tree that I have dated back to the early 1700's.  My journals.  

3. What do you like on a cracker?

Bruchetta

4. Do you make resolutions at the start of a new year? How'd that work out for you this past year?

Yes, I do.  No, it never works out. 

5. What's a song or song lyric you'll associate with 2011?
God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton.  The is dedicated to my husband.


6. How will you ring in the new year?

We host a New Years Eve party with close friends and family.  I love New Years Eve!  I enjoy watching the boys set off fireworks, playing cards, laughing, and counting down to the New Years!  

7. What is something you look forward to in 2012?

A year of peaceful mental health.  I finally found a doctor who has prescribed me medicine for my bipolar and it has worked wonders!!

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Scotland has the largest New Years Eve celebration, lasting four days, called Hogmanay.
