So last week we had our young women's activity at my house. Our beehives are a lot a like but very different at the same time so we wanted to have a fun night of games and pizza to get to know one another. The biggest hit of the night was a game where I ended up becoming the 1st VICTIM!!! The game involved placing a penny on top of a tightly packed tower of flour. It's sort of like Jenga... every person takes a turn cutting away a portion of the flour with a knife without knocking it over. The person whose turn it happens to be when the tower falls gets to dig the penny out with their nose! (I had such a hard time explaining this game in words so I borrowed this explanation from my friend. Thanks Christy!)
Here are a few pics of our fun time:
Out of the three times we played this game 2 of the victims were leaders! 5 girls 3 leaders what are the odds?? What a fun night!
Eliza was officially 4 months old last Friday...can you believe it?? She smiles, drools a lot, holds her head up pretty well, pushes down on her feet and tries to stand and loves to look in the mirror. On Friday we had a date with Jenny Freeman and her two daughters. The girls watched a movie and then watched their mommies make hair bows. Jenny and I had such a great time chatting and making adorable heart bows for Valentine's Day. Eliza was quite a pill and wouldn't take a nap so we had to keep her entertained... but we still had a fantastic time.
This year was Eliza's very first Christmas. On Christmas Eve we spent a wonderful dinner at my parent's house with my Grandpa Baglin & Shelia. We enjoyed opening gifts and watching Ellie with her Snuggie on :)
On Christmas morning we were all so tired that we barely wanted to open presents and get ready for the day. Eliza didn't enjoy sleeping in her bassinet so Matt & I split the night sleeping on the couch with her sleeping in the boppy (bad I know but it was the ONLY way!) After opening some fun gifts including exersaucers, clothes and toys we headed off to my Uncle Kelly's house for a Christmas breakfast and to open some more gifts. Eliza & Savannah got a lot of fun toys and they each got a GLOW WORM... remember those?!?! We went back home and got prepared for the entire family to come over for salmon and filet minion and stuffed mushrooms... DE-LICIOUS! After our tasty dinner a few of us went to see Sherlock Holmes...a good flick!
A few days later we celebrated Kelsey's 22nd birthday at a new pizza place called Grimaldis... it is modeled after the Grimaldis Pizza in New York under the Brooklyn Bridge (which I have actually been to). The pizza was pretty good but they didn't have RANCH and I didn't know if my family was going to SURVIVE! We had a very fun night.
Thank you to all of our family and friends who made this Christmas season enjoyable and full of love!
So I think I've been on "blogging vacation" and hopefully will get to it soon but.... I wanted to share with you one of my New Year's Resolutions if you will.
For the last year I have wanted to have one of those blogs where you take a picture every day and blog a bit about it and then at the end of the year make a book with all the pics. So I jumped in and did it and now I'm sharing the link with you!
