Happy New Year

Welcome 2013!
Last night we went to my father in laws for a little New Years Eve Party.  
The girls packed up their Hello Kitty bags full of goodies to keep them entertained while we were there so we could enjoy some adult interaction and a cocktail or two.
We stayed until about 10:30, Brooklyn was so tired she would go from laying on the cold tile to a sudden burst of energy to wanting me to hold her so she could sleep to back to crazy again.
We figured it was probably best to leave and get home safely anyway so we loaded up and drove home.
Kayla was not a happy camper to be leaving which is pretty common when we have to leave any situation.

Once we got home it was just about 11:00 so we told the girls they could lay in bed with us and we would all watch the ball drop together.
They climbed their tired little bodies in bed with us and made it until midnight and not a second after that ball dropped Brooklyn was already out of our bed and running to get into hers.
She was so tired!

It was their first New Years Eve actually up until midnight and it was probably the first time in atleast 6 years that hubby and I have stayed up that late on New Years!
If only they would have slept in today
they were both up at their normal times,
6:30 for Kayla 
7:15 for Brooklyn
Daddy got up with the girls so I could sleep in until 9.

 (Kayla coloring as usual this New Years Morning)

(Brooklyn's obsessed with her new chapstick set she got from her Nina last night)

Today will be a lazy day at home and pretty much the only day of this winter break where we have nowhere to be.
A perfect start to the New Year!

(Before heading out to the New Years festivities last night)

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
Excellent work!

Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post's to be what precisely I'm looking for.

Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally?
I wouldn't mind composing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome weblog!

Howdy just happened upon your website from Bing after I typed in,
"Blogger: Upon A Dream" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyways, I'm pleased I found it simply because your subject material is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some information from here and I will of course credit you as the reference.

I'm new to developing internet sites and I was wanting to know if having your website title related to your articles and other content really that vital? I see your title, "Blogger: Upon A Dream " does appear to be spot on with what your blog is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking
to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for something unique. P.
S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

went to type in the domain name: http://www.blogger.
and guess who already purchased it? You did! haha j/k.
I was about to shop for this domain name but noticed it was taken so I decided I'd come check it out. Nice blog!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
Terrific blog!

I'm new to running a blog and have been thinking about using the Vox platform. Do you think this is a good foundation to start with? I would be really thankful if I could ask you some questions through e-mail so I can learn a bit more prior to getting started.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Hi there. I noticed your blog title, "Blogger: Upon A Dream" doesn't really reflect the content of your website. When creating your website title, do you believe it's most beneficial to
write it for Search engine marketing or for your readers?
This is one thing I've been struggling with due to the fact I want good search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.

Currently it appears like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform
out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
