Happy New Year! Family Update

I hope you're all getting a good start on the new year. I like the feeling of a fresh start when the calendar turns over to Jan. 1st.

We didn't do anything special to celebrate the new year. Cody and Morgan went to friends' houses and spent the night. Tim was, I think, asleep by 10:00 . . . I stayed up to see the New Year as I was working on finding articles for the paper. I worked at my nursing job on New Year's Day--I had to take advantage of time-and-a-half pay!

Morgan's 15th birthday was Dec. 28th. She wanted to go shopping and take advantage of post-holiday sales and gift cards she received for Christmas. She took a friend along and we all had a nice day, which ended with supper at Applebee's.

Our family will travel to Denver, CO, for the National Western Stock Show later this month. Tim will be there for about 2 weeks, and Cody, Morgan, and I will be there for a little over a week. They have to be there early in the week to check in their cattle, but they don't show until the end of that week. I am planning to take along my scrapbooking supplies and scrapbook at the hotel for several days--it will be a huge treat to be able to do so without the at-home interruptions of having to clean the house, do laundry, cook, and so on. It is nice to have that to look forward to, to counteract the post-holiday letdown.

Cody and Morgan go back to school on Tuesday. I think they're kind of excited to see their friends and get the second semester started.
