2016 Blue Jeans week 52

I know we are already into 2017, but I need to post my last week of 2016.  We had a very nice, relaxing week in between Christmas and New Years.  It was a great way to end a great year!  Take a look at our week. . .
We always go over to our next door neighbors and celebrate Christmas after Christmas day with them.  They are the sweetest people and have no grandchildren of their own, so they have very sweetly adopted mine :)  We love them!

One of my requests for Christmas gifts was I wanted new art for my art wall,  My kids did not disappoint!  Can you see that white tree?  Miss O cut that out.  Miss E did the heart and Mr J did a few pieces to add to it also.  Love it!

Enjoying fun times with friends over the break.  Mr J got a mini pool table and has been having fun with that!

And Miss A got some mega peanut butter cups from Mr J as a present.  She shared a huge one today.  Really big!

Miss O had her cute friends over for an after Christmas party this week. Cute, fun girls!

And to end the week we celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary!!  We headed up to the city for a nice weekend without kids--went to the temple, went to dinner, and went to see the movie LaLa Land.  It was a very nice anniversary!  Sure love this guy and so lucky he is mine!!!

On our anniversary weekend we grabbed lunch at a famous and very yummy BBQ place--Joe's KC BBQ.  If you ever are in the KC area--go there!  Yummy!!! And yes, it is in a gas station :)

So we had a great 2016 and are looking forward to 2017!  Happy New Year!  Thanks for joining us on our journey and we hope you will stay with us in 2017!


  1. CONGRATS on your 21st wedding anniversary! :) How neat! ♥ ♥ ♥
    I LOVE that you have an art wall, and that you asked the kids to make you new art for Christmas. So TALENTED!!!

  2. Happy Anniversary! It's nice you could get away. I just booked our 25th anniversary trip that will happen this summer to Bora-Bora--can't wait! Glad you all had a nice week spending some good quality time with friends before the new years started.
