Happy New Years! Welcome 2013!

This year we spent New Years Eve with friends of ours. They invited us over for dinner (make-your-own pizzas), fireworks/sparklers, games and play. We had fun!...and got "close" to ringing in the New Year ;)

Our friend printed out some fun crafts for the kids. Here, Suzan with her New Years Eve glasses :)
Bethany ;)
And Brielle. Sorry, no pics of Jared :(
I did get a pic of Baby Gary with his new shades :)
An after dinner musical performance, with Mr. Ryan and Baby Gary :)
Then, we head outside for some sparkler fun!

Thank You B Family for having us over! We had much fun with you all!

A new phone

Thanks to my hubby, I have now joined the community of smartphone users :) He got me the new iPhone 5. It's pretty cool, I have to say. For example, I am composing this post from it via the Blogger app. Isn't that cool? Now let's see if I can post a picture here...

This is a picture of the girls' Christmas gifts. They already went through the Shrinky Dinks and the headband kits. Do they like crafts? YES! ;)

You might see more posts, especially pictures, from us now :)

Christmas Baking

We had lots of fun baking some yummy treats over the Christmas holiday.  We made/baked one Christmas treat every weekend before Christmas.  The kids really enjoy baking with The Mama ;D  And they probably enjoy consuming them too - Ha! ;)

Enjoy the pics!

First up, gingerbread cookies!
Anna had to bring out our "The Gingerbread Man" book we have. Cute! :)
Bethany, just decided to bring out Purple Dog so she could get a picture taken too - Ha! ;)
Now decorating their cookies
Anna. Her cookie is about gone there ;D
Suzan, very proud of her gingerbread man :D
Jared, decorated like a professional!
We (or I should say, "I") made Pioneer Woman's toffee squares. SO yummy!
Gingerbread house making time with Grammy!

Jared the Builder ;)
All ready for decorating
The other girls, minus Anna
All decorated. Can you guess the one that Jared did? Yes, the 2nd from the left, with the frosting icicles (of course! ;) )!
We baked up some Christmas sugar cookies. Here, they are frosting and decorating them!
