Fun with the family by Julie Lavender

Decorations and lights are put away for another year, heralding in the dawn of a new year and new beginnings. What was on your list of resolutions and changes for 2008? Have you tossed the diet aside already? Forget the pounds and the promises this year and make one simple goal - put family first. Plan to spend time with those you love, with simple things like watching ants crawl or roasting marshmallows to elaborate plans like building forts or going on extravagant vacations. Make an effort to make memorable times with special people, memories that will last throughout the year.
