What Will The New Year Hold?

2009 was an exhausting year. We had our second child and discovered that adding another boy to the house made the work load increase exponentially while sleep became non-existent. We spent three months, 1/4 of our year, out of our home either waiting for the baby to arrive or on holidays to show off the boys to friends and family. The year passed by so quickly I think it is going to take me until June to remember to put 2010 on cheques instead of 2009.

So what do I see for my family for 2010?
  • more outside time, especially quadding, as Cavan grows and can stay out in the cold for longer periods of time.
  • lots of camping in our lovely truck camper. This year we plan on hitting the North Canol road in addition to our favorite drive down the South Canol.
  • a visit from the East Coast grandparents in late spring.
  • a trip down to Dawson Creek in summer for shopping/visiting
  • lots of hunting trips with me included as the kids are both old enough to stay home with a sitter now
  • fingers crossed- more sleep as Cavan gets older
  • berry picking in the fall
  • trying some new sausage recipes in my new Bradley smoker
  • teaching Hunter how to use a fishing rod
  • finding and buying myself a pink lever action .22 and getting some grouse with it
  • of course the husband sees a new rifle in his future as well
So no real resolutions other than for us to continue to focus on doing things as a family, staying away from negative people and to do the activities we all love. I see a great year ahead for my family.

Happy New Year Everyone!

I love your thoughts on 2010 for you and your family. I'm not making any resolutions...but yes, staying away from negative people is part of my is taking better care of myself mentally and physically.

Good luck finding your pink rifel. I'm sure it is out there!

If you're ever down Calgary way, a pink rifle can be found at the Bass Pro Shops at CrossIron Mills, at Balzac.

I have no idea what caliber it is though - I just know that I saw one there the last couple of times I've been in the store and went "Hey lookie there - a pink gun!"
