It’s a little late into this new year to share with you our yearly Wish List which I originally shared with you last year, but I’ll go ahead anyway. I usually try to share it with you closer to January 1, but this year got off to a bit of a delayed start as The Driver’s mom passed away in the early days of January. We’re getting back on our feet and into a new “norm” now. I’ll write more about that later. Without further ado, here is our list from last year with our completed wishes.
Our 2010 Wish List
The Negotiator wants to finish reading all of “The M*gic Tree House” books.
Build a play structure.
Go to Disneyland.
Ride a horse & see the bats at our friend’s house in the country.

Now that I’m thinking about it, I wonder what is on your list of things to accomplish with your family this year. As you can see, we don’t always finish everything, but the sky is limit for us. We dream big…why not? So how about you? What are you dreaming big about?
