Happy New Year

We had a very nice "low key" celebration for the New Year. We had some friends come up from New Castle and spent the night. We ordered in Chinese Takeout and then drove around and looked at all the Christmas displays around town one last time!

Then...back to the house for some games. Seth and Lynzi(6) played upstairs surprisingly well...for never have really played together before. Us adults...tried our knowledge at some 80's trivia. I swear...Andy needs to go on some sort of trivia show and win us a million dollars...he knows everything.

The kids stayed up and we toasted in the New Year with Sparkling Grape Juice...our wish: 2 healthy babies. LeeAnne is pregnant too...and we are due just days apart. So...that was our New Year's Wish.

We ate waffles this morning and then LeeAnne and I headed out to do some maternity shopping...I was able to find a few things...thanks to a gift card from Andy for Christmas. The guys and kids grabbed Burger King while LeeAnne and I had a nice relaxing lunch, with just the 2 of us! How did we get so lucky.

Tonight...the 3 of us just relaxed...it's been a whirlwind of a couple days. Tomorrow...we start taking all the decorations down...I still can't believe it's over. Wow...the month went fast!

But...it's going to be a great year...full of all sorts of wonderful blessings!
