Remember when you had that mental-moment last month and you said that this year changes will not be feared? Well, time to follow through and start the New Year off right.

Here's a few things to add to that checklist to checkoff:

Reserve tickets for the 17th Annual Teddy Bear Den Celebrity Night Out. A night of great food, silent auctions and a fantastic and festive live auction that will all benefit economically disadvantaged pregnant women in the Sioux Falls community.

Strap on the skis for outdoor winter fun at Great Bear Recreation Park. Have you seen the tubing hill this year? Also, choose one of the many city ice rinks.

Un-decorate the Christmas tree before you drop it off at one of the Sioux Falls sites for free. 1015 East Chambers Street West of Cliff Avenue by the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Or 100 North Lyon Boulevard West of W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds.

First Day Hike at one of our State Parks. Sign up for hikes at Big Sioux Recreation Area, Oakwood State Park, Good Earth State Park and several others. And while you're on the GFP site check out ice fishing and snow shoeing.
