We spent a nice Sunday cleaning our entire house (and the Saturday before too) in an attempt to rid our house of all the sicknesses that plagued us over Christmas and rested up for a party over at the Payne's residence. We played some games and ate some food and ended with a horn-blowing-terrible-idea by me where it nearly broke our ear drums because all of the children screaming into those horns at our 10PM countdown. Nielsens swept the giftcard standing competition, I was pretty damn good at Linkee (and Matt was really not ha!), Meg and CJ brought the heavenly guac, and Krystal nearly cramped up with her impressive one leg skills as she's 8+ months pregnant (and Devin worried about her.) A
Oooh and Matt and I actually made it to Midnight just in time for the countdown and our 12 grapes and a lil smoochie smooch before we passed out tired. Grape pictures are really flattering on our faces. I like this guy.

Besides all the Christmas activities from beginning to end, here is a synopsis of all the other stuff that happened in December. On December 1st we bought a new furnace & AC unit and they finished installation on the 4th. That took a chunk out of our end of year plans, but it's nice to have our house warmer and know it's not shooting carbon into it! haha. It was legit 30 years old so it was definitely time and we're glad we had some money saved up for it.
We also celebrated cousin Henry's 3rd birthday with the cutest little digger party, and spent some time at the libraries and I even took the kids out to eat (at terrible arby's and it was gross. but EZ likes it so I guess that was what we went for since he got a "good student" discount.) And the light was incredible for a family selfie. Also my girl Megan got a dog this year and I took a little picture of her kids and dog Winston for their Christmas card.
