Ringing in 2013!!!

We arrived home from San Antonio the night of the 30th and I spent the next morning taking down all the Christmas decorations while the kids played. I had meant to give myself some more time to do it, but I got in an organizing mood and I needed/wanted it out of the way.
We finished just in time to get freshened up and head to dinner to celebrate my mom's birthday (Mexican food, of course!). Then it was back to our house for cakes, presents and fireworks. I had been planning to make a strawberry cream cake but my dad called in the afternoon to tell me that two different friends of my mom's had brought by beautiful desserts so I didn't need to (which was awesome since my organizing had taken longer than I planned). There was a fruit tart that I failed to take a picture of before it had been partly devoured and a pretty pink cake with a surprise inside.
Scotto put on quite a fireworks display for us, which could have only been better if the rain had stayed away. And much of the crew stayed to party with us until midnight this year! The girls both were able to stay awake the whole time (Preston passed out a little after 9pm) and cheered in the new year with some sparkling juice. The next morning I was shocked when Preston slept past 8am and I had to WAKE UP Addie at 9:30am! Our kids NEVER sleep that late :-)!
2012 was full of fun, adventure and growth and we can't wait to see what 2013 has in store!
