Some Favorites and Happy 2013

Good Morning Beloved Reader and Happy New YEAR!!
My Giant said this morning, "2013 what does it all mean?" very Dr. Suessical like and it made me chuckle.
Thought I'd just share that with you all. Not really sure why?  It has nothing to do with what I want to write about today, except that My Giant is my favorite.
(Here is My Giant on the Left with cousin Derek and Aaron, family is my favorite)

Speaking of favorites one of my favorite things to do with this here blogspot is go thru my favorite pictures at the end of the year and post them here. 
It is a way of looking back and remembering the year, and let's just be honest my blog has become my online scrap book over the years, and my scrap book that is not online has gotten quite dusty.

(Niece Sophia Adelle aka Last Minute Bisquit a moment on Skype at the beginning of 2012, my first time seeing her home from the hospital, thank God for technology. It just about ripped my heart out to not be there and smell her newborn smell, and I can't believe she is One year old as of yesterday.
Skype visits are my favorite.)
Happy Birthday Sophia!
So for the next few days I will be sharing some favorites with you. It's hard to pick just a few so if by a "few" you mean two then just prepare yourself that we might have a different definition of a "few."
And if you don't like scrapbooks online or otherwise then this is not the spot for you, for the next few days my dear beloved reader.
(Solomon meeting Sophia, Jan 2012 cousins are my favorite)
"Remember the former things, those of long ago;
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me.
I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say: My purpose will stand, 
and I will do all that I please."
Isaiah 46:9-10

(Emma in the Snow Jan 2012 Kids in Snow is my favorite)

(My Giant and Isaiah fixing some stuff on the property, father son bonding is my favorite)

It's a new year and with any new year comes new beginnings. I'm not one for resolutions because I don't appreciate the cruel form of torture they provide in constantly reminding of how I epically fail at them, however ... I do like new beginnings. 

(Isaiah brushing his teeth in his favorite Batman/Nacho Libre/ I just like to wear masks, mask. This is a favorite because I don't know how much longer my baby who is now 8, will go around entertaining us by wearing masks. This picture was a moment in time where he didn't know I was looking and I have a few more before this one where he smiled and shot that winning melt my heart grin. Grins are my favorite.)
I think those pics are a good start to my "few" that I plan on sharing with you all.
Meet me back here tomorrow for some more, and have  a great first day in 2013!
" Great day, that's too much pressure. Oh, or have the day you're gonna have!"
That's my new favorite quote from the movie,
The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

And now I leave you with another favorite quote. 
Quotes are my favorite.
(This kid Zed head he's my favorite... shh... don't tell!
Also saying "you're my favorite" to each of my children is my favorite)

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
