WELL HERE I AM. just a *few* days late. ;D

We all had such an amazing New Years celebration!!! It was such a wonderful time of laughing and smiling and being together as a family. Making sweet memories and spending time together was so awesome. I can't even tell you how refreshing it felt to all be laughing with each other and dancing and goofing off at nearly 1 am on new years eve. <333 It was a really special time for me that I wouldn't trade for anything.
On new years eve I babysat for most of the day, Mom got groceries and other party stuffs. Once we were all together at home, the party 'started'. xD Out came the ritz crackers, spray cheese, nut mix, and doritos. We talked about the day and how work went and other randomness until it was somewhere around 11:56. Then we started getting serious and got everyone to the table and started opening the sparkling grape juice. When 12 am- Jan 1st, 2018- came, we all cheered our glasses and Mom went around and kissed everybody on the cheek. <33 (it was a tradition she had growing up ;D) 
We goofed off (pics 1 + 12 thru 19)  before going to bed. It was kinda sad to have to end the dancing and laughing together, but if we wanted presents we knew we had to get up early, so that was something to look forward to. =D
The next morning was fun as people tore into their presents one by one. Everybody LOVED what they got!!! It was such a fun time! Then after the goober laid down for his nap, me, Ash and Lilli went to town to get some stuff. On the way home she stopped at Arby's and got me a loaded curly fry and mint chocolate shake...(!!!!!!) IT WAS SUPER GOOD. thanks awesome sista!!! <33
