New Year's Eve

 Gypsy was not a fan of us taking all the Christmas decoration down. She kept laying on/under/in things as we put them out to put things away.
 We decided it might be a good idea to have the kids rest for a little while since we are going to the Bussell's to ring in the New Year. I guess the last 10 days caught up with them. Hannah even slept for about 30 minutes. Gypsy was just glad to have us home and wanted to be near whoever was being still.

 The kids had pizza, edamame and cream soda made by Mrs. Allison!
 The adults made sushi and it was so good. I made one roll, but I am not as good  at making them as I am eating them. Allison wins the prize as the best sushi maker I believe.

 For dessert we had pineapple, strawberries, angle food cake, marshmallows and pretzels all to dip in chocolate. The kids thought the fondue pot was pretty neat.

 Look at these cute faces!!!! Love them!!!
We all matched and did not even plan it. I love these girls and I am very thankful for the friendship I have with them. I am glad to spend time with my TN friends.

Hunter ended his night playing with play doh. I did not get a picture of Cooper bowling. We put the kids to bed and then enjoyed each others company while we rang in the new year. Thanks for having us over!

I am so glad that I get to see my friends when we go to SC. I had breakfast with Dawn this morning. I love that we always pick up where we left off. I was able to have lunch with Jennifer and Micah earlier in the week. Tonight we got to hang out with the Hayes family. I am sad I did not get to see Chrissy, but hopefully next time we are there, unless she wants to make a trip to TN?

Here is a picture of the girls doing their performance.

Here is a short clip of the live entertainment we enjoyed.

a day full of family

 This morning we met Aunt Jan, Linda, Ian, Thomas, Brittany, Peyton, Preston, Brooklyn, Aunt Carol and Uncle Roy and Nana to play and visit. The kids had a great time and it as nice to see everyone and be able to visit for a little while.
 After we were all done playing we went and ate lunch with Nana. Then we went to see Great Papa for a little while. After taking Nana home and resting for a few minutes we headed to MeMe and Pop Pop's to have Christmas with them.
 Hunter was so excited that he got to help collect the eggs. He even ate one for dinner.
 Let the opening begin.

Hunter was holding on tight to his Joker car and play doh.

spolied rotten

 Hannah made Rockie out of play-doh. She loves that MeMe always has play-doh and lets her play with it.
 Hunter enjoyed a new game on MeMe's kindle.

As soon as we got to Papa and Nana's Hunter needed a snack. Hannah had one too.

 Hannah lost her third tooth today. She is so excited that Santa and the Tooth Fairy are both coming to visit tonight.

 The kids were so excited when they saw Tinsel at Mike and Nene's house.

Hollywood Studio

 Hunter was so excited to start his day with Handy Manny!

 This is Jake from Jake and the Never-land Pirates.

 Ready for Toy Story Mania!

 After the ride we sent to get the kids pictures made with Woody and Buzz. It is set up like Andy's room and is really neat!

 While we were eating lunch Hunter was really quiet. I looked at him and he as hardly able to hold his eyes open. I asked him if he wanted to come sit with me and he said yes. As soon as he laid his head down he was out. He slept for about two hours. Derrick took Hannah to play in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids area, to ride rocking roller coaster and tower of terror. When Hunter woke up we went to spend his Mickey money and then then for a few more pictures and the Osborne Christmas lights before heading out.

 Hunter kept touching the end of his pointed nose. Phineas finally moved his hand.
 Ferb got a big hug!
 Good picture with both!

 We saved the best for last!

 Thanks Aunt Kim for the Mickey money!

They were such good travelers! We only have about 4 hours left to drive in the morning! We had a great time and can't wait to go back.
