New Year’s Resolution

We’re not always good about keeping resolutions but we have one we are trying out. One night each week, each kid is responsible for dinner. They plan and cook it (with help). The idea is to work on their independence in the kitchen and hopefully come up with new ideas for dinner – or at least an appreciation for my planning and Chris’ cooking. Fingers crossed!

Ice Castles

Tracy and I decided that instead of giving each other’s families gifts, we would go on a joint trip. Tracy had mentioned wanting to see the Ice Castles in New Hampshire. We found a hotel with a pool and made a night of it with our parents and Jenney and Laura too!
