our new year's day

Back at it with these holiday posts. The last one though, I promise. Which I won't focus on the word last....

My sister and her husband always host us on New Year's Day. My niece Mikayla still being sick and some sort of football game on tv meant it was just us Olsens and my parents once more for this occasion. Beth made all sorts of tasty treats for us, smaller group not withstanding. We tried to recreate the annual grandchildren/grandparent photo but of course missing one grandchild and see also, Dominic, it did not go to plan. Letty's favorite activity to do at Aunt Beth's house is to work on practicing her sight words which makes my heart just so happy. Also taking mommy's camera and photographing all the things, like her cute little stocking feet with the heart. I love that girl. Just so much.

The old years gone and the new one is here to stay and life marches on right? Holiday Season 2016, over and out!
Past New Year's Day's here, here and here.
