Good bye 2012, hello 2013

What a wonderful holiday season it has been.  We have been so blessed to get to spend it with good friends and family.  The last two weeks made for the perfect transition from 2012 to 2013.  Minnesota was busy and full but not to with the usually holiday stress and excess.  Busy reconnecting with friends and family, singing and praising (yes we caroled on 3 occasions - now that is my kind of Christmas!!!), rejoicing, relaxing, and reflecting while enjoying some brisk fresh air and God's amazing creation.  We came home to just in time to reunite and ring in the new year with some old friends, actually the first two couple friends we made when we moved Sheridan.  It was really special to spend the evening with them, the bliss in reminiscing about the past and the anticipation and joy of talking about what the future may hold made for the perfect New Years combination.  Oh and these two cuties only added to the fun.
A New Years toast. Don't worry it's just Fresca but as far as H was concerned it was the finest concoction ever created!
H busting a move.  Honestly, how could anyone resist him in these awesome red pjs? 
 We spent New Year's day together lounging around, catching up from being gone and playing.  The highlight by far was kick sledding around the neighborhood.
 Colin made the kick sled for my Birthday last year.  It is so fun. He is going to have a hard time topping that one. AND he better get on it, since the big day isn't far away :)!
It felt like the perfect day, H took a 3 hour nap, I was super productive while he slept, we had the dream balance of work, fun, and play. What a way to start the new year!!!  Unfortunately, H was not catching up on sleep from the night before but trying to fight off the dreaded CROUP.  The croup won. So we have been a bit out of commission for the last few days.  We turned the corner tonight and will be back and better than ever tomorrow with another post and lots of Christmas pics to share. But for now my bed is calling me, taunting me with the thought that I might be able to sleep in it all night...
