Luckily for me, my good friend Julia and her husband were hosting a New Year's Day open house. YEA!
It was a great party, fabulous food, a great mixture of people, and the best part being the kiddos played outside happily for 5 hours!!! 5 HOURS of happy, non-tattling, non-hitting, non-whining kids. And there were a lot of kids. It could not of been a more perfect day.
I got home and bathed both of the little angels and then they went right to bed. I took down all of my Christmas decor (boo-hoo!), poured a glass of wine, and then talked to Casey on the phone for over 3 hours!!!
My mother is coming in tonight and we are going to do a little shopping tomorrow. My sitter is going to sit for a few hours so we can shop without trying to keep two people from destroying the stores and have a nice glass of wine with lunch without having to wrangle kids into high chairs and such. I can't wait.
So far, 2009 is looking like it is going to be a beautiful year. Yes, it is only the second day, but I am thinking positive people!!!
At Julia and Jay's the kids played dress up. I was hilarious seeing them traipsing around the backyard in these gettups. They were playing a serious make believe game. Precious.
Again, notice Bram going right into an action move.
John-Carter, Bram, and Ben. Buddies.
My little angel posing for me on our front porch. I had to get a January 1, 2009 picture of both kids. She says, "CHEESE!" as soon as she sees a camera. Can y'all tell she is getting more hair? I can smell those big, huge bows and grosgrain ribbons.....they are just calling my name!!!
