Evie and Henry were super excited to see Nana and Ipop and of course to open more presents. Henry really got into the present opening this year. Both kiddos scored some super fun presents. Evie carted everything up to her room to organize it at bedtime. LOVE that about my sweet girl.
Carl had to work for a bit on Tuesday but the rest of us headed out for doughnuts and to run some errands. Everyone loves a doughnut especially Ipop.
Carl and I headed out to our super fun New Year's Eve party. Our sweet friend Phaedra turned 40 and celebrated with a swanky soiree at McConnell house in Franklin. Delicious food, amazing friends, flowing drinks and free babysitters. What a night! It was a wonderful way to ring in 2014!
New Year's Day is always a low-key day around here. We took down some Christmas decorations. Our tree was completely dead and left a horrible mess. Oh well, my little helpers swept up the needles and everything is back to normal now. We enjoyed a traditional New Year's Day meal of pork, Hoppin' John, collards,and cornbread plus M&M bars for dessert. Those have to be on the tradition list, right! YUMMY - the dessert was the best part.
My parents headed out on Thursday and all of a sudden our house felt very quiet after all of our Christmas company! We sure had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hope you did too!
