if you're looking for a fun, family-friendly New Year's Day tradition ~ here's my New Years post from last year! We'll be doing the same thing this New Years Day too ~ I can hardly wait! Woo Hoo! Enjoy!!
Happy New Year from our home to yours!!
We hosted a fun, family friendly New Years celebration last night. We had 19 people (kids and adults) enjoying a taco bar, sledding, games, an ice cream sundae bar, tattoo stand and so much more! :) What fun!!
Here's a fun example from my son Jake (shared with his permission). Jake is now 16, but here's his Thank You for 2002.... :)
Or here is Benj's from last year...
For our New Years Day tradition, after we share our "Thank You" page, we take a new piece of paper. On this paper, we write out/draw specific prayer requests for the coming year. For example, this is Benj's paper for 2009....
For my New Years Day prayers last year, I had written "opportunities to share Jesus with others". (I just love Him so ~ and want to tell everyone I can!) I had no idea at that time that God would open a door for me to lead a Bible Study of 80 women on Monday nights (and less than a month later, no less)!
God is so faithful, isn't He?! :)
I can't wait for our special tradition to get started today !! I've pulled out the paper and markers, but John just said first I can sneak off to the bookstore for a bit with my Bible, while the kids are still waking up after their late night. Woo Hoo!!
What about for you?? Do you have a special New Years tradition?? Share with us please!! I'd love to hear from you! :)
Happy New Year! May your year be filled with much joy, peace, good health, and God's richest blessings!
