Happy New Year!

2013 had lots of great moments for us, but some really stressful ones too and I would be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to 2014.  It will be the year we move into our new house and can finally get our lives back in order.  It's the one event I'm looking forward to most and now that we are in the new year I feel like we will be inching closer and closer to that time.  AND, the real fun part of building the house will begin like getting to pick everything and see the house coming together.

We said goodbye to 2013 and Happy Birthday to our friend, Justen, last night.  Our dinner club friends went to a delicious (kid-free) dinner and had the best time laughing and making up excuses and plans for a grown-up only weekend get-way to possibly happen sometime this year.

While we were at dinner all of the kids were at Jen and Justen's house with two babysitters, who definitely had their hands full with 8 kids.  However, the kids all did great and so did the sitters (one was my cousin, Bryn).  The youngest ones were sleeping when we got home and the others were in their PJ's cuddled up on the couch watching a movie.  

After we got the kids to bed the adults, including Bryn who really needed a drink at this point, had fun watching football, listening to music, dancing, laughing,  and doing Wii Dance Party as we welcomed 2014.

Today we got dressed in our red and black to cheer for our beloved Bulldogs in the bowl game and made our way back to Gigi and Papa's house.  Robby went to the new house to work on clearing some more things and the kids and I stuck around the house.  We opened lots of their new toys from Christmas and spent lots of time relaxing and playing on this first day of 2014.
