Welcome 2014!

I still have roughly a thousand of our birthay-birthday-shower-Christmas-Michigan vacation pictures to post but I wanted to sneak in a quick New Year's Eve post first.  Our 2013 was full of blessings and changes, much like every year.  A few "hellos" (mainly to a new house) and quite a few good-byes.  We traveled and visited but stayed home a good bit too. Jonathan and I both ran a lot and Brinnly occasionally joined us.  We grew in many ways as a family, even though it's still the same six of us that were here on January 1, 2013.

So to cap off the year, we voted for a night in and a full day at home today.  Mali dubbed last night as "Family Jammies Night" so we prepped a good spread of food and headed to the basement to watch the original film of "Cheaper by the Dozen".  Steve Martin has nothing on this one.  The girls' were also invited as long as they followed the dress code. (They have Grandma Sandy to thank for their new wardrobe). 
After the girls went to bed at their normal time, Jonathan and I stayed up with our new best friends, the Bravermans.  Seriously, how did we just discover the show Parenthood?  Good thing the library has Season 1 on DVD! 

 I"m not sure what Jonathan was exactly picturing when he asked me to parry him 13 years ago last night, but I'm  hoping this isn't too far off.  It was was a lovely night and we have so much to be thankful for.  Here's to a fantastic 2014!

Well my dear, I'm positive he knew exactly what he was doing when he proposed! My son set his sights/goals, with his heart's desire and went for it! All of you have been truly blessed. Happy New Year! With much love, Mom-Deni-Grandma (baba)Deni
