Happy Merry New Year 2012! + new word

Happy New Year, 2012!! Long time no blog......and here's why.....

So proud of our son-in-law....a college graduate!
A very cool coaches party at our house with a few twists and turns. They filled out a menu for a three course meal with all items disguised under another name (icicle point=knife, Santa's sleigh=twice baked potato, etc.) Not knowing what they might receive for each course, they were good sports!
The basketball team played 17 games in the month of December.....whew! Only 3 of those were in town. Lots of travel! But.....they won 15 of those!!! Go Tigers! District gets underway for the month of January.
Christmas in Amarillo and Houston. Awesome time with family. Love. Love. Love.
Worked in a little ink painting with my sister, mother, and cousin.
Our family Christmas picture. Cheese!
Of course, the center of attention at all times........grandbaby! So adorable.

My new word for the year is ACTIVE. Last year it was Seek. I really enjoyed having a word to focus on so I'm doing it again.
Active: 1. engaging or ready to engage in physically energetic pursuits
2. (of a person's mind or imagination) alert and lively
3. doing things for an organization, cause, or campaign, rather thansimply giving it one's support

Actively pursue the use of my time in the best way possible.
I have just registered for two classes that I am very excited about that should help me focus on my new word. First: Hello Soul, Hello Business by Beth Nichols and Kelly Rae Roberts and
Second: Bloom True by Flora Bowley.
So looking forward to both of these starting in just a few weeks!!


  1. Barbara - I saw your post on the Flying Lessons f/b page. I'm taking both of those classes as well! "Great minds think alike"...right? Happy New Year and may all your dreams come true (after you do the work of course!).

  2. What a great word to choose for the year! I like this idea. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. I saw your post on FB Flying Lessons. What a wonderful word!! Love it! You are so fit and pretty...that is one of my goals this year is to get to my goal weight...

    Anyway, enjoyed your post and your blog. I love the positive feel.

    Have a wonderful day!
