Our New Year's Marathon!

As long as we are catching up on the holidays I figured I had better do your New Year's post too!  New Years was more like a 3 day festival for our family this year!  We started out on New Years Eve (our 6th Anniversary!) going over to our friend's Erik & Christa's house with plans of spending the night!  In all their wonderful sweetness and thoughtfulness they had bought my husband and I a gift card for dinner, but without reservations we couldn't make it work out for our actual anniversary, so we postponed it for the next day and decided to just whoop it up with our two families for the night!

Erik & Christa have a son your age (E) who you have known since you were 4 months old and you have always been great friends!  They also have a younger son (A-2yo) and the three of you had a ton of fun watching movies and making forts!

Here you guys are watching Dawn of the Dinosaurs- so cute!

While you guys were distracted, us adults had a blast playing Dancing with the Stars on Wii!

Christa- shakin' her groove thing!

Daddy- shakin' the maracas!

He said he didn't like it but that face doesn't lie!

Erik was the Dancing with the Stars master!

Maybe his score was so high because the console could somehow detect his ridiculous faces!

Or maybe he scored high because he and Christa would practice their moves when it wasn't even their turn!  Haha- too funny!

As the 12 o'clock hour drew closer we broke out the pans...

Popped open the bubbly...

and prepared to wake up the whole neighborhood!

I still can't believe that you boys slept through all of the ruckus!

New Years Day you boys all stayed in your PJs, just playing and having fun!  I felt like I hardly saw you for two days because you were always on the go- hangin' out with your pals!  We couldn't believe how well the three of you got along!

Here I am getting ready for our belated Anniversary Dinner!  Christa put my hair in rollers and the boys all thought I should just go like that!  Haha!

Saturday morning we finally returned home (yes, two nights spent at our friends- we were all just having too much fun!).  Literally minutes after we walked in the door, Uncle Jake (daddy's brother), Auntie Jenn and your cousins showed up for an abbreviated holiday celebration since we hadn't seen them yet!  It was nice to see them and catch up- it had been far too long!

You and cousin A

Showing off your new swords!

Playing with your remote control car!

Your other cousin A with Lion Cub!

All in all, it was CRAZY three days but oh such a blast!  There is nothing like ringing in the new year with friends, family and a ton of fun!
