See you next year!

For a challenging ( i.e. tense, stressful) year our Christmas was refreshingly challenge free. It’s always better when I don’t fight the holidays, but surrender. 

Christmas eve my mother took us out to dinner and afterwards we walked to look at the lights.  Rex was absent.  Once again he refused to “dress fancy” and I think he takes after his big brothers.  He would rather be at home and watch TV, eat simple food than get dolled up and go to a restaurant. So, the boys stayed at home. Vivien hews closer to me.  I love seeing her with her daddy.

This will be the first New Years Eve Mark hasn’t worked in over 30 years.  We are going to have a quiet, family celebration.  I’m looking forward to unplugging. So, I will see you all next year.

Thank you all so much for coming to Cool Mom in 2012.  It was a time of great changes here where I no longer had the economic backing to produce as many videos as I use to and I had to learn to drive this ship by myself.  Editing, shooting, etc.  I learned a lot, and have more to learn and explore.   Have a great New Years and here’s to a happy, healthy days in 2013.

So much to be grateful for.  Life is good.

  1. Life IS good. Beautiful post to end the year. Thank you Daphne for making me laugh and cry. I became a fan before I was a cool mom myself and now have a 2.5 year old and a second baby due in 4days. Happy New Year to you and yours- I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings for you. You deserve nothing but the best.

  2. Happy New Year! Thanks for giving of yourself in 2012. You make my evenings with your honesty and humor. 2013 is going to be a great year for you, I can just tell!
