When Christmas was all said and done, Jaina had to set up
all of her stuffed toys. Including her 33 mini tsum tsums!!
A Sunday night at Mana's. Melody is always hit and miss when it comes to dinner time, especially
when we're out of the house. But this night she tried an orange and loved it. She called it a 'gort'!!
While at Mana's, we swapped kids. Mara went to Brent & Lisa's and Max came home with
us for sleep overs. On Monday, we decided to go to Nickel Mania and had a great time.
Jaina and I usually walk away with over 400 tickets each time we go, but she never
uses all of them. I have a paper in my wallet that the excess get added to each time
we're there. We started out with 490, but right now it's up to 940!!! And she even used
tickets while we were there! At least she's happy and get some fun prizes each time we go.
We met up with Lisa for a kid swap at the Wendy's by Target. Then we went to see Karri after lunch.
The boys had stayed up late, per usual, and Xander
totally conked out in the car on the way home from Orem.
A new car means new window stickers!!!
On that Wednesday we went to the Provo Rec Center with Liza, Addi
and Karri. It's been awhile since we swam during the winter. I was excited
to go because I was able to use my new camera for what I bought it for!
Thursday was New Years Eve! We spent the day relaxing, then headed up to Mana's for dinner
and games. We picked up food from Taco Amigo to eat at Mana's. Most of Mana's sisters were there
and we played Yahtzee for a bit before the littles needed to get to bed. So we headed home about
8:00, put the girls to bed, then watched Super 8 and half of Jurassic Park with Xander and Mara.
Since we don't have cable and didn't think to turn on the TV to find a New Years event, we
just watched my phone turn to midnight. We wished each other a happy new year, then went
to bed. I know, so exciting, but it's what/where we wanted to do/be.
It was a great way to end the year, with these people that I love.
