We rang in the new year with good friends, and a fun celebration filled with food, drinks, photo prop pictures, games, minute-to-win-it challenges, balloon drops, hours of fun on the trampoline, and more! Happy New Year to all, and thank you to our friends for making our celebration so fun!
Our finished snowmen!
The games were awesome, but some of us needed a little quiet time to ourselves…
Some of us were ready to party into the night…
Emily desperately wanted a photobomb, and Mr. Justin happily obliged…
Mom’s friends are the best!
Happy New Year!
Everyone made it to midnight, but just by the skin of their teeth!
We should have known the first doorbell ring of the year would be from Miss Ashley… right after midnight! It’s going to be a good year around here!
We had so much fun with our cousins, Aunt Bridget, Uncle Kevin, Nannie & Grandpa! They came for a short visit after Christmas and before New Years, and it was amazing how beautiful it was! One day, it was almost 70 degrees, so we took our cousins with us to enjoy a day in downtown Raleigh at Pullen Park, The Morgan Street Food Hall, The Boxcar Arcade, the Milk Bar for ice cream, and we even had time leftover to hang outside riding scooters, and spending some time with the neighbors! We love “winters” in the South even more when we can share them with family!
When Nannie, was here, we got to take her out to lunch and saw the new “Mary Poppins” movie!
Our time together ended with an epic game of Harry Potter trivia pursuit! Abby CLEARLY is the most up-to-date on her Hogwarts facts! Maybe next time, Aunt Bridget & Uncle Kevin… Probably not, but maybe…
We couldn’t wait to see what Santa brought this year, and as always, our stockings were totally awesome!
The girls gifts were pretty epic this year, and Abby was QUITE excited!
Ben’s favorite stocking gift was his smelly markers!
While we played with our new stuff and went out hoverboarding, Mom and Dad enjoyed, coffee, mimosas, and “It’s a Wonderful Life!”
We were so excited to get to share a little bit of Christmas morning with family! It’s almost like we were together!
We did some cooking and made up cookie platters for our neighborhood “progressive” dinner with friends. What a fun way to celebrate Christmas!
Even Nannie and Grandpa made it in time for dinner! We had a great group this year! Merry Christmas everyone!
