Happy New Year

4, 3, 2, 1... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 

We had such a fun get together with five other families for New Years Eve! (I wish they blogged... as I would have tagged them! Get with it girls!) It was a laid back evening, but at the same time SO much fun! We made it to midnight and Ally Ann stayed asleep through the entire party. I'd call that a WIN-WIN. The big girls got to go to Amee and Grumps' house for the night for a slumber party after they enjoyed dinner with friends. 

I'm eager to start blogging a little more frequent this year and am SO looking forward to it! I took a needed break, I mean look back... I blogged about holidays and birthdays and that. is. about. it. I chose to focus on our family in 2016 and am excited to get back into the swing of things over here in our online book of the Tennison family. 

Those that know me well, know that I LOVE to talk! Give me a cup of coffee and a girlfriend- and I am one happy woman! I've decided that a cup of coffee and my finger tips may just do the trick! As much as I would love to be cuddled up next to a friend, my computer may have to work & I'm excited about it! 

Here are a few of my New Years Resolutions that I am excited to pursue this year! 

1- Make mornings a consistent bible time/quiet time (note: It's 7:21am and I've already got that in! Wahoo!) 
2- Organize one/two spaces in our home a month (pantry: check!)

3- Read one book a month
4- Enjoy others intentionally-- be more intentional in opening our home to families to eat together/ intentional with our own family in evenings together.

Speaking of friends- I have linked up with Shay and Erika!  Once a month they are are doing a fun link up with other bloggers on how they "work it" in real life. The second Wednesday of every month I'll be hoping on over here on our little blog and sharing how The Tennisons are "working it!" 
So- Link up! and check out their New Years Resolutions, too! 

Cheers to 2017! I'm eager to see what the Lord has planned for us! 2016 had its ups along with its downs. And HE walked us through each trial and celebration!
