HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2013 is gonna rock!!


 

 
 
Thank GOD for do overs!!
 
 
I have been doing alot of soul searching this holiday season. Being so sick gives you time to reflect on what is important. I know God and Family are a given. But inside myself is where I need the most fixin!! So I have picked out my word for 2013. And it is "PEACE" and I keep singin that song " Let there be peace on Earth". So I keep sayin to myself "And let it begin with me"!!! I remember throughout the years I would always take pics like this with my peace sign held up. Being a girl of the 70's it was a given!! LOL I remember the day these were taken!! LOL I rode the city bus to the mall with my best friend. Which was a big deal in itself!! LOL And I had just gotten that shirt! I LOVED it!! It had a tie in the back and it was one of my favs for a long time!! I wore it with stir up pants!! Oh my goodness that is so funny as I look back!!!
 


Christmas was very good. We had three family gatherings. Christmas Eve was with my family and was very nice with good food. It was so cute my cuzin had re-done her kitchen in Italian decor so we had an Italian style meal with lot's of yummy food.
 

 Chillin with the family

 


My Brooke bein her cute self!! Brooke LOVES peace signs so I know she will remind me alot throughout the year of my word peace!!
 
 
Here is the family gathered at the table. I lOVE the way my family gets into the spirit with their cute Santa hats!! And all of the little girls have red in their hair they do it at the beginning of December thanks to their Grandma!! LOL One bottle puts red on all of them!! LOL
 
I also got to spend some time with my Danny on Christmas Eve day. Kaitlin helped me pick him up and take him out to lunch. One of my best presents for the day!!
 
 
And here is a few of my presents I got on Christmas day from the family.
 
 
My new groovy boots Sim got me!! Every time we go to the Tractor Supply Store I either put them on or stand and stare at them!! LOL I was so surprised when I opened them up!! LOL My Spring boots!! YAY!!
 
 
Here is what I got also from the girls. My box of my very favorite candy is the Chocolate covered cherries. Brooke got me those!! And the cute Candy land bandages came from Kaitlin and the moustache markers too. They are so flippin cute. She said she knows I'll do something creative with them!! I know I will too! LOL
 

We also got to See our Caylee Roxanne on Christmas Day. She was having a tea party when we got there. What a sweetie. She is gettin so big and so smart! She was pretty tired and is trying very hard to smile for me here!!
 

And here is the awesome bench Sim made for his Mother for Christmas. He really rocked it out and she loves it. He painted it green her favorite color and it looks so good on her new enclosed porch.
 
We also had another Christmas at my SIL's on Sat. I didn't get any pics of it though. We were very blessed for Christmas. We stayed home last night. Sim had to work yesterday and today. We did make Mexican food and I wanted lemon cake but we made cupcakes instead. I have alot of positive thoughts flowing for the New Year. I know when I put my mind to it I can do it. And so that is why I know I need to let PEACE begin with me. So that I can help others in a positive way!!! PEACE OUT buddy's I Love ya!!
XOXO Fran.
