2013 year wrap up

Things I missed in between Christmas and the end of the year. . .
My sister, her husband, and their 2 cute boys were with us for Christmas this year which was way fun!  Love having family and cousins here!

Miss A turned 16!!!

And being the runner she is, loved her running gear gifts

Miss A finished her quilt she had been working on this year with Nana.  Beautiful!  It is her 2nd quilt she has made.

Mr J got some awesome Lego sets for Christmas that Miss E helped him  put together.

We celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary and got away for a weekend in the city and went to the temple.  So nice to be together!

The kids did gingerbread houses at Nana's while we were away.

We have spent a lot of time playing the new games we got for Christmas and enjoying our fireplace while it is cold outside!

Miss O had a Christmas Ball at school, and the sister missionaries came over to do her and her friend's hair and make up before the dance.  They looked so beautiful!

Our amazing high school band director convinced Miss A she needed to switch to band in January and play the French horn, so her awesome sister has been giving her lessons over the break.  We are definitely a band family now!
And this is our last photo of 2013--our New Year's Eve party with our fancy glasses and our sparkling apple and blueberry juice.  Happy New Year!

Here's to a wonderful 2013 and looking forward to an even better 2014!
