So anyway, on New Years Eve we drove up to Kansas City…..
We let her stay up and play with Grandma Jenny until about 10:30ish, which she thought was FABULOUS and then we rang in the New Year super eventfully, sitting on the couch, drinking sparkling grape juice.
Mabel Elizabeth received her very first gift! Which was very very exciting! It was an adorable outfit set that she will get to wear this fall. Eep!
I captured this picture before we left for church on Sunday morning. Her imagination is running absolutely wild these days and I just LOVE it. She is so creative and her mind works in totally unpredictable ways. I adore hearing what she comes up with and it usually involves laughing shortly thereafter.
Our cell phone photo taking expert(Abigail) snapped this when we got home from church. I like us 🙂
I happened past a mirror(the one in the photo below actually) and thought, “whoa! torpedo belly!” Where did this thing come from? I mean, holy growth spurt Miss Mabel! Or, perhaps, holiday treats? Either way, there is no mistaking the belly these days.
I totally love it.
Both of our families are major game players. It’s what we spend the majority of our time together doing. We love Settlers of Catan(with expansions! I actually got a victory during this visit!), Ticket To Ride, Puerto Rico, Apples To Apples, Pit, Mafia, and just about any card game you can think of. Usually Pitch, Nerts, Euchre, Hearts, or something like that.
How’s that for an eclectic post?! How was your New Years? Does your family play games? If so, what are some of your favorites?
Aww she looks so cute playing with her doll babies. How fun that you got an outfit for baby sister! And you look great! I definitely had a growth spurt over the holidays too…no telling if it's all the yummy food or not though! haha Have a good day girl!
I just love that Abigail can take pictures for you two. Your bump is too cute and definitely growing!
I have been thinking the same thing!!! Growth spurt or holiday indulgence!!!???? 😉 LOVE IT. Doesn't even matter. xx
Yes my family is a major game-playing family! I love party games like Catchphrase, Scattegories, Things, etc. but my family always trumps me (pun intended) and wants to play cards.
Stinky shoes… I love that kid!
LOoks like such a fun tradition!
We are huge game players! My husband loves Catan…I like it ok, but I always lose lol! We love Ticket to Ride, Taboo, Catch Phrase, Scattergories, Farkle, Phase 10…I could probably continue but I won't 😉
How fun! I like uneventful New Years celebrations 🙂 I'm loving your belly! And your facial expression of the pic in the mirror :-p We love games too!
I was going to say I spy a bump! Love it! No games over here just our enchilada feed and the rose bowl.
I LOVE Abigail's photos. And I love the angle. You can totally tell she is not tall enough to take them straight on so they are looking up. LOVE it!
I think because I DO SO MUCH for Christmas, by the time NYE comes, I'm totally over everything. This year, I was asleep by 11:15. Lame.
i love that your bump is bumping!!!! yay for growth spurt!
