Happy New Year

I have been looking forward to this day all week long. This was our first Saturday without any plans since the first week of November. I had to go back to look at the blog to confirm this. We spent the entire day relaxing, one reason I took all our decorations down earlier this week. I got Cameron a booster seat this week for the kitchen table, he likes to me up in the mix while we are playing games. We got the Angry Birds board game for Christmas. I think you should get extra bonus points for just being able to build what the card tells you to do. Oh, and to get it all back in the box correctly.


I love their facial expressions.


I have to admit I never got into the game on my phone. Steve has been playing it since we got our phones last year. I finally downloaded it this week and I'm addicted. I don't know what took me so long. Funny story, yesterday we had on the news and they were talking about the UK/UL game. Cooper points to the tv and says, "look mommy, Angry Birds". Ha ha!! He knows the one and only IU! Speaking of.... how about them Hoosiers? I think we are back!


Tonight we decided to break out another Christmas present and have a movie night with Cars 2. Once the popcorn and chocolate covered pretzels ran out the boys had about enough. I didn't really blame them, it did seem a little over a 4 yr olds head. I liked what I had seen so far.



About 45 minutes into the movie the boys were jumping and falling off the bean bags so the movie went off. It was time to play more games, another Christmas present, Don't Break the Ice




I'm not so sure I will actually make it till midnight tonight. I know I say it every year but I can't believe another year has gone by. It wasn't the worst of years, I mean we did buy a new home, but it wasn't the greatest either. I don't know if it was extended period of the "baby blues" but I just wasn't myself for about 9 months. It just wasn't the best of times and I can't really say when I snapped out of it but it feels good to be done with that. I do always look forward to the new year. It's like a new beginning, a time to make resolutions, although I never really do and if I do I never keep them. Like my "I'm gonna run a 5k this year".


I hope everyone has a blessed, and safe, New Year!

You made me laugh out loud, "I'm gonna run a 5K this year" I've made that resolution a time or two myself :) Oh, and Cars 2 is boring, in my opinion!!

I fell asleep on cars 2 three times on the plane to Hawaii. I'm glad I'm not the only one who found is boring!
Happy new year to you!
