Happy New Year!

The past week has been pretty relaxed around here, after the craziness of Christmas.

The kids have eaten a lot of meals outside in their new little house, ridden bikes, and run around like crazy people. We went out to sushi lunch and visited Ellie's apartment (JC Penny) and took down our tree, which means that now there are pine needles all over the house, which I will continue to sweep up until the next holiday season, when our new tree comes to join us.

Mostly we end up with nothing to do and all day to do it in, and so try not to go too stir crazy on each other. For New Years we hung out with some friends and their kids, and when we couldn't find a countdown either on live TV or netflix, we just started counting down loudly, told the kids it was the new year, and then stuffed them in their pajamas and headed home. This morning, the same group got back together to continue drinking (champagne, also great in a mimosa!) and the kids continued running around like loons. Ellie and Lex were very into the fact that they were the "big girls" and had to take care of the other kids. Happy New Year everyone!
