After Christmas and New Years

I just like this picture, but we didn't catch any fish:(




We left Gramma and Papa's the Monday after Christmas so that we could attend the wedding of one of our previous babysitters. Their family is so special to us. Here are the two younger sisters and former babysitters:)

And the BRIDE! As you can see it was a rainy day, but EVERYONE had a great time. The 1-hour rain delay allowed the guests to mingle and have a drink, so by the time the nuptials were said, no one was complaining.


The newlyweds...



Me and the Bride!! What a great time!!





New Years Eve found us having a full-family sleepover at friends. We kicked of the evening with some fireworks...aka sparklers and those pop firecracker that you throw on the ground.




The kids rung in the New Year with our family tradition..."Purple Cows"



We also started off the year with a tragedy at the house behind the ditch from our backyard. New Pup woke me up to go out at 3:30am. As I went to the door, I gasped and yelled at B that the house behind us was on fire. B being the complete level headed administrator, jumped out of bed and began to get dressed while simultaneously calling 911. He jumped in his car and went over there to bang on the door of the house and its neighbors.

Unfortunately, we later found out that there had been someone inside. I was so proud of my husband and it definitely made us talk to the kids about fire safety and formulate a plan in the event of something like this!

That's really sad about the house behind you! But good thing that you saw it and that B was so quick to action. And I love that first picture, too! Great shot!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
