12.31.13 – Christmas Recap and Looking Ahead

31 Dec

Christmas came and went in the blink of an eye, and we are getting ready to ring in the new year. But I was going through my Christmas photos and iPhone pics/videos and wanted to document a little more about our holiday fun.

We had so much fun decorating cookies with friends. Although she wasn’t too sure about getting our hands messy and was equally unsure about sitting by her friends for the group photo. (Thanks, Steph, for hosting us!)

We checked out the holiday lights with Leslie:

The reindeer sippy in the Christmas Eve surprise box was a big hit:

She didn’t really get the whole present opening thing, but enjoyed playing with paper!

Playing with Aunt Annie’s toys and walking all over Mimi’s and Grandpa’s house was a lot of fun too.

Playing cars with Uncle Ryan and Uncle Jacob was also a good time.

And dancing with a Prince…

And she had her first Chuck E. Cheese experience. You can’t tell by her face, but she had a lot of fun – I promise! 😉

Now we are just soaking up the last few hours of Christmas decor and playing with new toys.

My New Year’s Eve will forever be special since my first positive pregnancy test exactly two years ago and the sweet little “Laney Eve” that came 9 months later. I will always reflect on how grateful I am to be her Momma and will look forward to all of the new memories we will make in the coming year. 2013 has been a great one, and I can’t wait to see what next year brings!

Cheers to 2014, my friends! Wishing you lots of love, laughter, and fun in the new year!
