Happy New Year, everyone!! 2017 is upon us and I have a feeling that this is going to be one incredible year. With a new baby on the way and so many fun projects in the pipeline, this just might be the McDermotts’ best year yet.  I’ve been thinking a lot about New Year’s resolutions, and today I wanted to share mine with you… plus some pretty hilarious resolutions from the kids! I asked each of them what their New Year’s Resolutions were for 2017, and their answers made me laugh. Take a look…

“I want to play less video games and do outdoor activities with my family.” – Liam

“My New Year’s resolution is to learn how to master the backhand spring in gymnastics, and help with the new baby!” – Stella

“I want to be a princess!” – Hattie

“I want to become a ninja super hero and kiss the baby everyday” – Finn

As for me, my personal New Year’s solutions are to work on my organization and time management skills in my life. With 5 babes I’ll need these skills! I also want to work on being as connected as I can and communicative with my entire family (blood and chosen members!!). I think gamily is so important, especially for the kids. They crave knowing all of their family near and far, and I want to help them make these connections and keep them 🙂

What are your resolutions for 2017? Leave them in the comments!
