While some are our partying this year away, we opted for our usual way of celebrating New Year’s Eve, at home! We made finger foods which seems to have become a tradition, took silly pictures, Aub had a friend sleep over, & hung out with my parents. Only somehow this year by 10 pm this is where we landed. In bed, with a glass of wine, under a warm blanket, and snuggling with my husband. Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year. Of course at midnight we will go out in the freezing cold air and see a few fireworks with any of the kiddos that managed to stay awake long enough to see them. Looking forward to a New year of memory building with my family and friends. So many great plans already being made.
Damned good thing 40 is the new 30, because that’s where I’m heading in ten days!
Mad (8 years old): “Almost everything is made in China.”
Bitty (5 years old): “Except us. We’re not made in China.”
A full day of keeping my mouth shut or barely whispering because I’ve lost my voice is just about to make me go crazy! My kids don’t know how to handle me not answering their 5,000 daily questions. Guess we had too much fun on that trampoline with our kiddos and grandkids in that cool air yesterday. Worth it!
Woke up early with our three little ladies, my husband, and my parents to see what Santa tucked under the tree for them! Quite possibly my favorite thing about Christmas morning is the genuine excitement children hold opening their gifts. A little later my mother in law came to spend some time with us. And then our son, daughter in law, and grandbabies came over for a fun filled evening. It turned out to be a rather perfect day.
This morning while I did a little baking our girls decorated gingerbread houses with my parents. After taking some pictures of our kiddos in front of the Christmas tree with our pups we went to B-Boo & Mac’s for some Christmas fun with family. So many laughs were had. Then we got our littles home and tucked in bed so Santa could bring some goodies for them. I can hardly wait until tomorrow morning!
