Happy New Year Cabin Style

Once again this year we ventured up to the cabin for New Years. This is always a fun time at the cabin. At some point while being there everyone is there. This year it snowed while we were there. But not to worry the kids still got to ride in the meadow and the sledding hill was made by the snowcat...and only minor injuries! It was a nice break to escape from the day to day responsibilies. We enjoyed spending time with family, eating yummy food, (don't you know that is what you do at the cabin?), playing games, impromptu concerts, and just relaxing, curling up with a book.

On New Years Eve, we played games...and I don't know too many people who can say they played a wicked game of "Heads Up, 7 Up" on New Years Eve but we did! We played other games and at about 9:45 Lib was ready for bed, Brit was asleep and you guessed it, I pooped out! I don't remember the last time I didn't make it to midnight...but I was done! That's okay, it still came without me, and now we have a great 2010 to celebrate!

Happy kids heading down to the cabin. We hit yucky, snowy weather, but they were troopers.

While at the cabin Brit decided to take his first steps. He would only walk to McKinsey, and the first day he did it he actually took the steps, I think the most he took was 3. But the following day he learned that he could get to Kins by diving to her. I never told you my child wasn't smart! But we actually captured his first steps on film. But I'd have to be really talented to put that on here, which I am not, so you'll have to just trust the still shot of him.

Zach wasn't so sure he enjoyed the head gave him the chills and he would just giggle while it was on his head.

This was one of the impromptu dance concerts...I never knew that Lexi and McKay had so many moves! I was crying due to laughing so hard! Good Times!
Brit thought it was really fun to talk to people through the railings.

This was the on the ride home...Liberty and Brit just ZONKED out!

It was a fun time, but I was ready to get back to reality. Surprise, Surprise! Happy New Year to you! I hope it is a great year!
