Have A Wonderful Day!!!!!!!
I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!!!!!!! I hope you all have a very blessed and prosperous year. I don't know if you make New Year's resolutions, set goals, or whatever for the New Year, but if you do I hope you are able to meet those goals and resolutions. I was doing pretty good last year with my resolutions until about August and then I am not sure what happened, but I kind of lapsed in my resolutions. I tried to get back on track throughout the remainder of the year, but it was a no go. So I debated about whether or not to set any for this year or what I should do in the New Year. I decided to go ahead and set some goals and things for myself and I am going to do my very best to meet those goals and stick to my resolutions. I don't know how successful I will be this year, but I am going to try. So what about you? Have you set any goals or resolutions or do you have any advice on how to meet your goals and meet your resolutions? If so, I would love to hear what you have to say. Once again I want to wish you a Happy New Year and Have A Wonderful Day!!!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!! So once again I wanted to go ahead and post this in case I don't get around to doing on Christmas. Plus this will give y'all the chance to complete it and not have to take time away from your family on Christmas. So since it is Christmas, I thought we would focus on the Names of Jesus.

There are only 3 days til Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!! I can hardly believe it. Today we are going to play a game of reversed Taboo. So for those of you who have never played Taboo, here is how it is played. You are giving a word such as HOLIDAY. You then have to describe that word to your teammates and see if they can guess the word. The catch is you are also given 5 words that you cannot say when describing your word. If you say one of those 5 words, then that word does not count. So in reversed Taboo, I am going to give you 5 words and you see if you can figure out what the word is.

2. reindeer, nose, sleigh, red, bright
3. Santa Claus, workshop, reindeer, arctic, cold
4. wife, Santa Claus, North Pole, cookies, married
