New Year 2013

This year Mitch and I rang in the new year at Grandma's with grandma, my sister, her husband, the kids, baby Gage, and cousin Taylor. We had a great time together :)

I put together some count down activity bags for us

and I made these cute cookies too

At 6 pm the kids opened the first bag, "Pizza time"

7 pm we played Hedbanz for kids

8 pm we watched Despicable Me

9 pm intermission, we made sundaes!

then we finished the movie

10 pm we played Minute to Win it

11 pm we wrote out our goals for the year

(It was during this time that Jessica and Shane passed out with their newborn baby)

12 am, we rang in the new year! We celebrated with sparkling grape juice and watched the ball drop.

Christmas 2012

We had a lovely Christmas this year (as we do every year)! The kids announced at the end of Christmas that they got everything they ever wanted, lol. Through out the season we read to them the real reason for the season, Christ. And almost every day reminded them that it wasn't their birthday, its Jesus', and we spoke of ways that we could give to him, which is by giving to others and loving people. I'm hoping this lesson sticks with them.

Below are photos of us celebrating:

Jingle Twinkle made an appearance of course

We were able to slip in a few crafts this season. Not as many as last year, because this year unfortunately I was down for half the season with the flu

The Brevards' side Christmas

The Brevard cousins

Our Christmas morning

Christmas at Grandma's

I didn't even get any photos of Mitch and I :( but I guess that's what happens when I'm the photographer and Mitch was by my side instead of in front of me. Oh well, we were there though, I promise ;) and it was a merry Christmas!
