And it was wonderful!
We got some long-overdue chores done around the house. We spent lots of time watching movies, playing video games, and playing board games. Andrew and I are reading a young adult book series together (Divergent). We take turns reading out loud, which we haven't done in years. It's so fun to share that experience. And by the end of break, he was doing well enough that we would leave him home while the kids and I got out of the house for some fun.
New Year's Eve
with Jeremy and Erika
and their yummy buffalo dip
and some fun sodas
And their cute girls.
Lots of Singstar
(The boys kicked our butts. Boo.)
Ringing in 2014 with pots and pans!
(a little early)
These two make me smile
Whitney spent the New Year with her cousins in western NC. That has been our tradition for the last few years. Since the whole family couldn't make it, we decided to send Whit as our representative. :)
She had SUCH great time.
They're already planning their next get-together.
We met halfway on New Year's Day to get her back.
We played at the super fun park again.
I was glad the weather cooperated.
It was a decent winter day!
We stopped at Tanglewood on the way home.
Love these lights!
And no break from school would be complete for our family
without a visit to Chuck E Cheese's!
Brrrr....where are their jackets???
