Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year Everyone!! Going to start the new year off right with some blogging! Kinda let the blog drop for awhile but I am ready to get back in gear now!

Today was a pretty low key day at our house. We went to my parents house last night to celebrate the new year with them, my brother's family, and my sister and her husband. It was fun. Jadon stayed up the whole time!! He loves playing with his cousin Owen. They ran, ran, ran all night long!! I figured he would fall asleep on the way home but he jabbered the whole way and even wanted to do his usual bedtime routine. I was dead on my feet. Not sure where that kid gets the energy!!

Today Jadon let us sleep in. He woke us up around 9:30 which was a pleasant surprise since he never sleeps in!

The rest of the day was pretty low key. Watching movies...Rio and Kung Fu Panda 2 again! Good thing they are both good movies!! Did some cleaning and reorganizing in preparation for the work week. The house got a little sloppy while we were in low key vacation mode last week.

Jadon having some snuggle time with Daddy today.

Jadon of course made some time to play with two of his favorite Christmas presents....his new Melissa and Doug train table from Santa and an IKEA art easel from his Aunt Dani.

Of course we had Hoppin' John (black eyed peas, ham, and rice) for dinner. Fingers crossed it was a lucky batch!!  We use Matt's Grandma Bea's recipe that we found in her own handwriting.  How cool is that??!!

After dinner made a run with the hubby to the grocery store so we can eat for the week now just blogging and relaxing!
