Happy, Happy New Year

 Happy New Year!!
We are ending 2014 on a really great note. Nathan turned 12 yrs old this month, which doesn't seem possible but he assures me it is. He decided to have a mint chocolate chip brownie ice cream cake for his birthday. He even helped make it, so it was extra delicious!  He also got more gifts than he knows what to do with, thanks to awesome friends and family. But he was also responsible and put some of his money in the bank. He's a pretty wise little fellow.

This year my parents decided to have an ugly sweater contest on Christmas Eve. Brandon was the big winner of the night. He picked a girls sweater, decorated it himself and even made a headband of holly. He went all out!
Nathan's sweater was pretty ugly too. His was straight out of the 70's and he decided to attach pop-pop ta-ta's. I told him that's why he didn't win, he was too inappropriate. He just smiled and said it was still funny. What a goof!


Christmas was really nice. The boys were very happy with all their gifts. We have been playing tons of board games every night. But I believe spending time with family and friends for the entire week of Christmas was our favorite thing. We got to see some movies, eat out, play games and just hang out with everyone. You can't beat time spent with loved ones!!

Tonight the boys and I are just going to hang out at home and wait for Brian to get off work. Maybe watch a movie and eat some junk food, play a game or two. Once Brian gets home, we'll watch the ball drop and bring in the New Year together.
Happy New Year!!! I hope it's a great one!!
