One of my favorite books as a child. Pretty sure I ordered it through Scholastic Book Club.

Family New Years letter.

One wintry day the Stack family decided to form a band… The Procrastinators. We have all the makings of becoming the next Beatles, except for one very minor detail. We haven’t produced any songs. Blowing off copyright, we made a playlist that embodies The Procrastinators in 2012.

Sunday Morning Coming Down by Johnny Cash  Sunday, December 30 and just starting our letter.

Separate by Trampled by Turtles  Sara now works in Minneapolis, living there part time.

Home by Phillip Phillips, Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes  Despite Sara living away from home, Gerae is living here and Isaiah will be next year.

Alone by Trampled by Turtles  Empty nesters? Not quite, they keep coming back. We’ll be moving out instead.

Little Lion Man by Mumford and Sons  Our cat Fuzzy is still with us despite the efforts of certain family members.

Stuff that Works by Guy Clark  After 10 years in this house and in reference to our band’s name, not a lot.

Big Jet Plane by Angus and Julia Stone  Dani world traveler. Added England and Mexico to her passport. Gerae’s trip to Florida.

Midnight on the Interstate by Trampled by Turtles  Several road trips for weddings, track meets and Isaiah’s trip to Boise.

Dance all Night by Chance McCoy  Nieces’ wedding dances and the living room floor with the music cranked.

Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show  A standard family sing along, as well as one of the cranked tunes.

15 Step by Radiohead  Not an addiction program, Gerae danced to this song at her Fall Dance Show.

Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel also covered by Mumford and Sons  Isaiah tweeted “Simon and Garfunkel, best band ever!” Everyone loves Mumford!

Pursuit of Happiness by Kid Cudi  May you all pursue and capture it in 2013!

Playlist will be shared on all 5 of our Facebook timelines. As well as Twitter accounts and Tumblr.

Went to the Movie “The Hobbit” on Christmas. It is unfortunate that the makers of the movie didn’t find the story as written by J.R.R. Tolkien complete enough. I was very disappointed with how far they wandered from the original story. Not sure I even want to see the rest. What a bummer!
