All week long, people have been asking what we're doing for New Year's. It's a simple enough small talk question mostly, but no one seems to like the honest answer of "not much, really." We're simple, stay-at-home celebrators. We avoid the roads and those who may have imbibed a bit too much at the various parties they visit. We don't drink champagne and stay up 'til midnight (ok, sometimes I do). We will probably play Scrabble or watch a DVD before heading to bed, and that is fine with us. But it doesn't particularly smack of "New Year".
This year, we decided to reflect a bit as a family on 2011. There are some great questions at Simple Mom to get you going. It was a fun exercise, and we enjoyed recording our answers. Our older girl chimed in for several questions, which was fantastic! When we were done, we made up some questions of our own about the coming year:
What do you most look forward to for 2012?
What would you want to do differently than in the past year?
What would you like to do more of?
What would you like to learn?
Happy New Year, everyone! Wishing you a fantastic start to 2012!
