The party still continued the week between Christmas and New Years.
We met up with my parents and Erin for some ice skating just before they left for the airport. We love having them around for the holidays and it's always hard to see them go. We miss them all during the long winter stretch!
And we loved having Uncle Tyler with us too! The little boys especially love him because he plays with them and roughs them up!
We played many games of Tenzi...a new favorite!
And Addy and I took a trip with some friends to the American Girl store. It's a trek all the way up to Lynnwood...but good company and Cafe Rio for lunch make it all worth it!
And then my friend, Jen, graciously hosted a grand New Years Eve party. We went out as adults with Lallatins, Shakespears, and Carvers to a local Japanese Steakhouse. And then we met up at Jen's house with the kids to ring in the new year.
She always does a beautiful display of goodies!
And the kids had a blast playing with hats and props!
These 'nose' cups were hilarious.
We kept it low key on New Years Day. We had the Carvers over for lunch and some football. A great beginning to 2015!
