New Year's Day/Scavenger Hunt

New Year's Day was spent at Nana and Pop's after a lazy morning at home.

After supper we played Mexican Train dominoes and after a while (a few hours), the kids got antsy. Ava had played for a long time, but since the game takes so long she had given up. I sent her on a photo scavenger hunt so you can see what she came up with below. ;) A good way to welcome 2014!
This has become Ava's go to spot for reading. Love seeing her reading challenging books.

This little guy spent some time curled up in my lap.

Rousing game of Mexican Train dominoes

The below pictures are from the scavenger hunt I sent Ava and Harrison on. They had fun and it gave us a little piece and quiet!

I told her to find an elf and take a picture. This selfie of her and the elf just makes my heart melt. Such a funny girl.

A ballet ornament???? She claims it is there.

I made her count how many ornaments were on the light. She says 67. ;)

She claims an elephant is in this picture

Not sure about this one

Welcome 2014!

We rang in the New Year with a birthday party for Bradley. But I guess we are feeling our ages because we actually rang in at 11 and then went to bed! Wild party animals!

We played some Uno and some Jenga, but we were just ALL tired out so we called it early this year. It happens. We did have a good time, good food, and the traditional Sparkling Grape Juice toasts, which Ava declared is her favorite part of New Year's (you can see she had a death grip on the bottle by the end of the night!).

So, welcome 2014, I hope you are good to us! :)

At exactly 12 I was in bed reading on my phone....what a wild life!

Can't believe that it has been so long! So many things have happened since our last entry (holidays, celebrations, etc.).

We hope you have all had a Merry Christmas and that you are gearing up for a marvelous way to ring in 2014!
