2012 - out with the old and in with the new!

Last night we started a new family tradition.  Although we think that it is very important to set goals and resolutions for next year, we also know how important it is to get rid of the negativity and bad experiences of 2011.  We all wrote down things from 2011 that we wanted to rid ourselves of...things we wanted to go away.  We wrote things like car accidents, arguments, toxic people, bad grades, etc.  Then we all went outside and stood around the fire.  We took turns reading these things aloud and then BURNING the papers.  It was very therapuetic.  It was neat to hear eveyone's lists and everyone got into it, even Ryland.  Now that we've moved out the negative from 2011, we have so much more room for all the good things that 2012 has in store for us!

Happy New Year to you and yours!  Make the best of it!
