New Years Eve

Jan 1, 2007 at 9:53 PM

We went shopping this morning and I got some storage boxes (nice ones black and silver) and we brought some jars so that we can save money this year.

We have a resolution with the kids that we will teach them how to save money in 2007. So we had a talk to them and we all went out and brought a jar each and in each jar we are going to put 20 cents each for the boys and a 1 dollar each for us so the boys will save $73 each and we will save $365 each. I am not too sure if we will tell the boys half will go into their bank account and half to spend in the holidays but we will see. We are also doing the normal savings and pocket money stuff but I don't want them to be bad like us with saving so we want to start off now.

We also did a lot of other resolutions for ourselves for the year of things we want to achieve this year because after the fabulous year we had in 2006 we want to make sure we still keep striving for the best again in 2007.

We went to friends of ours G & P for New Years and had a BBQ and spa and swim and it was a fabulous relaxed night and we all really enjoyed it. We played Spin Uno and it is such a great game and we didn't stop playing till 3am in the morning and my oldest and their oldest were up talking in their beds till midnight that in the end we got them out just at midnight and did the count down with us.

It was fantastic night and it was good to get out with friends.
Love CM

The white-water rafting sounds like it was awesome fun! Good on you for doing it, even though you had your doubts. You are such an inspiration, seriously :)

Keep up the great work, and maybe it will be a bungy jump next time hehe
