NYE 2013

 One of my most favorite, new traditions is NYE with my favorite sister.  The past few years, we have gotten reservations at a fancy hotel - gotten all dressed up and gone out to a very early dinner, and spent the evening playing games, and dancing and watching the ball drop.  This year we stayed at The Grand, and invited T and Matt and Lo.  They almost made it... (insert frown-y face).

This year, Bennett and Harper insisted we bring props.  Need I say more?

 If this is what brings us to the end of 2013 - can't wait for 2014!

Matt loves to sled or snowboard or be outdoors - so does Bennett.  Coincidence?  I think not.  We took advantage of the holiday break and spent a few days at Prince Albert.  The girls stayed home, and crocheted and played with the babes, while the boys went out to play. 
 It was pretty much the perfect day - for the boys and the girls.

Hey, Clark.

Matching pajamas, homemade pizza and a new sketch pad.  Can anyone say "Griswald"??

Acres of Love

Christmas 2014 was the last Christmas spent at the farm.  I'm kind of at a loss for words, and really tried to remember each moment.  I couldn't even say it was bitter-sweet, as I am feeling so very excited about the next residence, and have only happy (ok, about 98% happy) memories of the farm.  If I learned anything there, it was that the land is the land, and our family is our family.  I'll keep both.

While Christmas 2015 seems SAFAR away (sorry, I couldn't help myself) I can't wait to see where mom puts the trees, and where dad puts the light up baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
