Happy New Year!

I've been kind of slow with blogging lately. I took off time last week, so the boys could get some time at home to play with their new toys, and have lazy days. On those days I don't think we got dressed until noon. We ran around in our pjs pants and t-shirts. It was wonderful. I cleaned and cleaned to. Areas that typically don't get dusted a lot are now dusted.

We had a dance party on New Years Eve. The whole idea was to have kids come over, and parents could go out if they'd like. We had 2 disco light balls running, loud music, things cleared out in the living rooms so the kids could have room to dance, snack type foods, desserts, and sparkling juice. 

In total we had 5 adults, and 11 kids. I know we all ate way too much, but had a blast. I loved how my nephew Edison danced the whole time. Watching 1 year olds dance is so cute!

One of Isaak's friends (I have gotten permission to post his picture online. His mom posts pictures of Isaak at times to.)

I'm not one for making lots of New Years Resolutions, but I do like to set goals that I started before the New Year happened. Last year I made the goal to give myself more time to get places. This year I want to save more money for retirement, clean the house more, paint more, and have some blog updates that I have been working on.  

Questions For You: 
  1. If you have a blog, who do you get your hosting from? I'll just say it, I'm a dumb ass person when it comes to that. I really don't know what I'm doing. It scares me to set up hosting. I started this blog as a modern day baby book back in the day. I never knew it would lead to friends, reviews, and an outlet to express myself. I have a new "look" started, and as much as I've gotten comments on the name of this blog, I have to change it. I have a new name to! 

  2. Do you set New Years Resolutions? 
 Happy New Year! I hope 2016 is better than 2015 for everyone!

We had lazy days too. It went way too fast.

I use Blogger but buy my domain through GoDaddy.

No resolutions here. We did the lazy days thing too. When our kids were little, we always had a get together at our house for children through their teen years. It was nice to know they were somewhere safe.

I use Enom for my hosting. Recommended by Rosey (mail4rosey) and haven't had any issues in the 2 years I've used them. I wanted a new name for my blog when I updated its look but Jason talked me out of it saying that's my social identity. He thought it would be a disaster if I changed it. I kind of wish I would have not listened to him and changed it anyway. Oh well. It is what it is.

The party looked fantastic! We just played board games all night, almost missing the ball drop because we were so absorbed into the games. We remembered about 30 seconds before the New Year!

I can not wait to see what changes you have.
I need to update mine, but am clueless as to how or what or any of that..
I need to get to figuring out something soon.

We were so tired on New Years Day that we just lazed around and did nothing. We had been out at the casino until about 3 in the morning.
