Well, it's a new year and time to make resolutions. A resolution is a "firm decision to do or not to do something." It seems that everyone makes them in January, hoping they will see them through in the new year. "Hoping" doesn't sound very firm. But that is exactly what I'm doing. My friends are so good at keeping up with theirs. Many movies depict people blogging and doing a great job keeping it up. That is what I am resolving to do. So, I am planning on using my lazy Sunday evenings to update my blog. 2010 New Year's resolution! (At least one of them!)

Christmas 2009

Our family spent Christmas 2009 with family. We had a wonderful time. Our holiday lasted a month. We spent most of the month with my family, going between Houston and the Rustic Star (near Schulenburg, TX). Of course, shopping was done in Houston, but Christmas day was spent at the farm. We also made an overnight visit to Baylor. Kurt's parents met us there and we all went to a basketball game. The next day, Ruth Anne went on a tour of Baylor. She had a great time and loved the campus. It was wonderful being with my family and, of course, I loved every minute at the farm! I really enjoyed going to Mom's and Dad's new church in Schulenburg.
We left the day after Christmas for Susan's house (Kurt's sister). We spent a week with all of Kurt's family there and at his parent's lake house. When we got to Susan's house, there was some leftover snow in the backyard. Josh was able to make a snowman with the help of Uncle Kent (Kurt's brother). Ruth Anne went to an all-day concert with her cousin, Kaitlyn. Everyone took turns playing the Wii. We also played 'Apples To Apples' until midnight one night! Grandpa took Josh duck hunting one morning for about 45 minutes. Josh told Nanna that he and Grandpa waited for 10 hours to shoot a duck !!
Josh got plenty of opportunity to ride his quad-bike and Ruth Anne drove Papa's truck every chance she got. We all took turns riding with her.
Enjoy the pictures!
Blessings for the New Year!
