Happy New Year!

Finally lost that tooth!

See ya next year, Christmas!

Kitchen reno

Once  snow eater...



Pump It Up NYE party for the kiddos

They loved the balloon drop

And were very serious about pizza.

Because we are total idiots, we told the big boys they could stay up late tonight, which seriously hinders our Downton Abbey and decoupaging wooden nursery letters time.  But Ben made potato skins and buffalo wings and a killer fruit plate, along with veggies and dip and lots of crackers and cheeses, so that part sounds awesome.  And, thanks to bouncing, those two will be out in no time (**fingers crossed**).

Last year, I made some unkeepable resolutions.  This year, I am just going to enjoy myself-- the last time I'll be pregnant, the last time we'll have a newborn in the house, our little Jack going to kindergarten, another year with tons of little kids doing little kid things like losing teeth and learning to read.

2012 was a terrific little year.

Cooper started eating like a man. 

We made a mushroom cloud out of snow (Cooper's first foray into the snow, in fact).

Jack manned up and sat on the Easter Bunny's lap.

We hosted a holiday for our families.

Ben made his garage sale dreams come true while simultaneously helping Jack live his lemonade stand destiny.

Harry turned 6 and finished his first year of real school.

Cooper rode the merry-go-round!

We took the kids on a quintessential driving vacay and showed them the ocean.

A new baby on the way!  And our current baby turned 1!


Remember that whirlwind Thanksgiving weekend?

Chrismukkah was pretty much the best ever.

Cheers to 2013.
