Good-bye 2018, hello 2019! We had a good 2018 but we also had some struggles. We are ready to bring on 2019!
NEW YEARS EVE
I had to work New Years Eve but Joe was able to stay home with the boys. When I got home we had dinner and then inflated the air mattress for a movie night!
We got all settled in when my friend Tyler (who is visiting from Oregon) texted and asked if we wanted to come visit for a little bit. So we did! We backed up the kids and it was a blasted! The kids had fun together and it’s always nice to see them.
Then it was back home to put Owen to bed and watch a little bit of movie with Liam. He loved having the air mattress.
We put Liam to bed and then review our 2018 goals, our 2018 accomplishments, and set our new 2019 goals (with some ice cream).
After we set our goals we decided to watch a movie. We chose “The Impossible.” Great movie but I highly recommend not watching it right before bed.
We made it until 11pm (which is east coast 12am right?) and decided to call that “good enough.”
NEW YEARS DAY
Happy New Year! We got up in the morning and relaxed before getting ready for a trip to the zoo!
We picked up my parents and off we went with our new zoo membership we got for Christmas.
Liam loves going to the zoo and Owen is old enough now to enjoy it too. It was the perfect day to go because it wasn’t very busy.
We had a blast showing my parent’s all the cool animals and Liam was just in awe of them all. Owen was even growling at the big animals.
We were all starving by the time we left so we picked up some lunch on the way home. We ate at my parent’s and put the boys down for nap there too. We watched the Blackhawks Winter Classic game.
While both boys were napping we watched “Dumplin” on Netflix (do not recommend). Owen ended up going down for nap late so I had to wake him up and he was not happy. We ended up leaving my parent’s and when we got home Owen was fine.
We had dinner, the boys took a bath, and then went to bed.
It was a fun New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Happy 2019!
