This New Years we were excited because fireworks were legalized so we went to buy fireworks around 5pm and waited in line for about 40 minutes, well ryan and gabriel did, me, bella and jeremiah went to wait in the car. it was so cold! I swear it hasn't been that cold since I moved here. It was probally 30degree's. We went and had pizza at my mom's and waited till midnight to light the fireworks. All we heard all night from the kids is "when are we going to light the fireworks?" The kids had so much fun with the sparklers and all the other fireworks, Orlando bought some fireworks for us too. Gabriel stood back from the fireworks while the other kids were running around the fireworks going off. He's always been afraid of fire. Jeremiah was asleep by midnight so he didn't see them. On new years day we went up to our friends Sara & Pete Goodman's cabin(pinetop) to play in the snow for a couple of days. It was so fun, my kids could stay out in the snow all day. They went sledding and made a snowman with Orlando & Jessica. They were on their way home from spending new years eve up in pinetop so they came and spent a few hours with us on their way home. It was really fun and beautiful up there.
