Cheers to a New Beginning / Snippets of Design

Happy New Year!!!

I hope everyone had an awesome, amazing New Years Celebration of some kind…

I hosted New Years at my house this year.

We enjoyed a yummy potluck  of  ham, a baked potato bar, & appetizers.

We got to count down the New Years Twice because

not only did we celebrated the New Year at midnight

but we also celebrated at 10 P.M.

for “Little Tikes’ New Year”!

I caught a few pictures of some of the little ones “partying hard” that I thought I would share…

{I wish I had taken more but I tend to forget when I am hosting…sorry}

New Years/ Snippets of Design

My niece Bekah will probably kill me for this one when she gets older but it is my favorite…

eating or not…she was ALL decked out! ;)

New Years 2 copy

Poor Emmalyne couldn’t keep her glasses on but she was so sweet to hold them so I could take a pic…

New Years1a copy

Erik “awesomely” posed for this pic.  {I LOVE his face in it}

He discovered that if you stuck a balloon on the end of a noise maker, you could blow it up & the air from the balloon

would make a REALLY LONG noise without all the work…

lol…smart kid ;)

New Years3 copy

Ben is so cute…this is his “I’m blowing up a balloon but I am still a stud pose”.

New Years4 copy

I stole a pic of Megan as she as she Celebrated Tiny Tikes’  with her clapper, chips, & hot chocolate.

New Years5 copy

and William as he entertained himself with some balloons…

Yep, we had a rocking good time!

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”
 -Rainer Maria Rilke

I am so very excited for this new year.

I love the adventure & I honestly can’t wait to see what comes…

as C. JoyBell C. said…

“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book!

That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas;

this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page!

And it is a beautiful one!”  


I honestly believe that every year, every DAY really, is a new adventure.

A new chance to decide who you want to be & what you want to become.

I created this new 8.5 x11

Free Printable Sign

with a saying that I believe states this perfectly.

{Maybe it will help fill in that space you will create by taking down you Christmas decorations…}   :)

It looks like this:
