be kind and work hard

...and amazing things will happen. have you seen this?

we got this awesome gift, for christmas, from my dear friend, steph and we absolutely love it.  we bring it to the dinner table every single night.  actually, the kids are so excited about it, they bring it to the table.  each person gets a turn to pick and read a card (ryder needs a bit of help still). then we go around the table and each person takes a turn answering the question.  we do this until each person got to pick a card.  last night, our questions were: who do you sorely miss? what's the nicest thing you've ever done for someone? have you ever stood up for something you thought was right? if you were going to create a new holiday, what would it be and how would you celebrate it? would you rather be smarter, more athletic or better looking?

in discussing our answers to the above questions, there was a lot of talk last night about being kind, doing the right thing and working hard.
