And not as in “huht-huht-hike!”
Took the kids out for a hike the other day and it grew contagious! They have asked for it every day since. What a thrill to discover a winter-stricken forest full of snow, sticks, animals, rivers, uncovered paths, fall trees, animal tracks, iced-over puddles for ‘ice skating’, and MORE! It’s been just so much fun. All of them doing their thing, getting along, creating adventure stories and just plan fun.
Rang in the new year last night. Thank goodness we had a few great movies (Brave and ParaNorman) or I would have passed out by 10pm! The older 2 made it to midnight and enjoyed seeing the ringing of the new year. SBJ had to work and the other two had passed out. But a quiet-at-home new years is just what I like the most. The kids want to do-it-up next year with a party! I think we had all vowed to do-it-up all year long this year because we certainly do love entertaining and good times with friends.
Looking forward to this year ahead. Big things are in store for the J-Kunda clan!
