This was the first time the kids stayed up to watch the ball drop. So. Much. Fun. Sunshine didn't make it, but it was awesome to watch the older two experience New Year's Eve for the first time. Some of our dear friends from church celebrated with us and it just made the night so sweet! Of course not going to bed until 3am will take it's toll on us parents, but oh my goodness what a wonderful night we had! We feel so blessed to have found such good friends and kindred spirits in the E. Family. The kids get along swimmingly and it sure helps that the parents feel mutual too :-)
It was an awesome celebration and I gotta say ... I am super excited for all that's in store for us in 2013. So many blessings and so many things to be thankful for. God is good! Happy New Year to all of my bloggy friends!
