The lamest holiday in our house is New Year’s Eve. I tried to spice it up a bit with trying out a new traditions this year. For Christmas the girls received a baking set which included an apron, oven mitt, and baking kit. For New Years Eve I had the girls make up each of their baking kits to eat as treats. My girls love baking, so this was a success of a tradition! I still think they would rather have a bunch of friends over, scream all night, and be wild.
See? Shae would have rather had friends. No actually she wouldn’t, she adores baking. She woke up from her nap in a sad mood, and I needed to give up on taking pictures.
They did love trying every flavor of the sparkling cider that I could get my hands on. We might have had some bed wetting problems that night. So maybe that is NOT a new tradition I should hold onto.
New Years Day was full of playing with Christmas presents, making the front room a LEGO building space, and working on a new exciting project (*I will tell you all about that in another post). For breakfast I made beignets and for dinner we had Korean food.
I worked on blogging, a whole big 6 month chunk and one time. Kind of like what I am doing now. I also spent time working on the dance team bulletin board. Abby & Cameron are on a fun dance team and I wanted their team to have something fun to look at.
During the holiday break my girls also went on their Christmas excursion presents with their Dad. Poor Cameron needs a redo, the penguins TERRIFIED HER. Abby adored snowboarding, adored it. Reagan spent over $70 on a mermaid statue she painted with her dad. She better save that for the rest of her life. Shae was in heaven at her cooking class at Ruby Snap. THIS is a tradition I will not let die.
The holiday break was also a good time to heal. Everyone was a bit under the weather and worn out. Reagan was really sick, her poor body was trying to heal from a staff infection traveling up inside her nose. Cameron also got a bad break out so both of them were in some pain.
At church teachers & classes changed. Which sometimes is sad and makes you realize kids are growing up. Reagan left her sweet Brother Beck in nursery and now is a sunbeam. I will never deal with kid in nursery again. Reagan took to Sunbeams really well and loves Primary.
That was our New Years Eve—a whole five months ago. I am surprised I can even remember things and where the pictures were in my computer!
