happy new year! we had so much fun ringing in the new year with my whole family. when the girls heard the word "party", they ran upstairs and changed into dresses and fur stoles, leaving matthew and i feeling quite underdressed. gracie is never one to pass up on an opportunity to dress fancy. at 8pm the countdown started and sparkling ciders were toasted and kisses were given (further spreading all the winter colds).
the adults (mostly) stayed up till midnight. it's one of my favorite days of the year, and new year's morning is close behind. we spent our morning eating waffles and working on a set of new year's resolutions. the first new year's eve matthew and i knew each other, we made a list of resolutions (he has always been goal oriented and it's something i wish would rub off on me more!) and we've done it every year since. this year we decided to focus on family goals that we can make together. it was great to reflect on our favorite parts of the last year and what we can do to make 2014 even better.
