New Year's Eve and Day
I thought I would just document how we spent New Year's Eve day and the actual night because we had a lot of fun!
We first woke up early and hung out with the Greco's. A little tobogganing, snow ball fighting, and feasting on the delicious brunch Larissa and AJ put on. And Adam is simply delicious too:) We had fun playing with him and oohing and ahhing about how CUTE he is is!
We then headed to pick up some ice cream - a tub for each person, if you can imagine.
This was on our family bucket list from last year - we were to "wallow" and eat ice cream like they do on Gilmore Girls.
Although we certainly have nothing to "wallow" about, but the kids loved it.
We watched a few episodes of Gil and then watched a movie.
We ordered in some Chinese, and then got all dressied up and headed over to Andrea's to ring in the New Year with her kiddies.
It was a low key, but meaningful way to bring in another great year.
New Year's Day was pretty good too,
We went to see Les Miserables. I sobbed my way through it, and surprisingly, the kids enjoyed it too (we had talked about the story line, expectations (they sing the ENTIRE time) etc.so they knew the commitment they were making.
The afternoon was spent lounging, playing some games, and removing everything Christmasy from our home. Such a sad thing, but I actually like getting back to the groove of life too. Christmas will be back...but we can always try to keep the spirit of it in our home year round.
So long Christmas Season. Til we meet again.
