Rolling (more like falling) into 2013

We had a lot of fun ringing in the new year. The fun started on New Year's Eve. We got a babysitter for the girls (one of their favorite things), fun microwavable food, a movie, and candy. Then Cory and I left. We met up with six other couples at Cheesecake factory (I'm so mad that I forgot to take any pics of our night)and then afterwards we all went over to one of the couple's house and played games and ate some more food( favorite!) It was such a great date night, especially since we got to know some more people in our ward. Yes, it is finally happening. We are starting to really love our ward and all the wonderful people in it. Cory and I left with enough time to take the babysitter home and watch the ball drop with our older girls. Then we drank our traditional sparkling apple juice in our fancy goblets and then crawled into bed at 12:02. The next day we all went ice skating. It was the girls first time and they LOVED it!! It was a little tricky to manage the little ones but we figured it out and I think they had a great time as well (except for the moment when Hailey ran away from me and I was frantically chasing her with Makayla in my arms, and a stoller in front of me while trying to manuever through a crazy crowd at the mall. I'm sure it was not a very pretty sight and I'm glad Cory didn't capture it...he was the photographer for the day). Speaking of photography...Cory surprised me Christmas morning with my dream camera. I can't stop taking pictures...and neither can he. It's amazing the difference between my iphone pics and my new camera. I LOVE IT!!! We are all very excited for a new year filled with new resolutions. Cory and I both have a goal this year to do our very first triathlon. I have some more resolutions but I think I'll save them for another post. Here's to a rock n rollin' 2013!!

What a fun day! It was fun to see all of your holiday pictures. Wished I was there to see it in person! It was fun seeing the girls in the pajamas and the big girls in their cute Justice shirts.
