New Years Eve {2012}

While last year’s NYE was a quiet evening at home as a family of 3, this year we were lucky enough to spend it with some of my very favourite people.  We arrived back in Cochrane early this afternoon to fireworks on the countertop and plans of a bonfire in the works (thanks, Gar!)  My NYE contribution was picking up some groceries and putting together some homemade {wholewheat} thin crust pizzas while Miss G got her nap on.  Mix in some s’mores, noisemakers, and late night science experiments with my nephews {after the girls had gone to bed}, and you’ve got yourself a pretty awesome New Year’s Eve.

New Year’s Eve

We were very lucky to have gorgeous NYE weather today in Vancouver, so Gracen and I spent most of our day outside.  We went for a couple of good long walks and G enjoyed pointing out each bird, dog, and “vroom” (car) she saw.  We also played at one of our favourite parks for over 2 hours, but our fun there came to an abrupt end when we had a little incident of sorts (photos to come soon, I’m sure).

IMG 3653Once Bradley was off work, G and I met him at the Canada Line station, picked up our pre-ordered sushi, and headed home for dinner.  We had some Christmas crackers we’d forgotten to  use on Christmas Day, so we busted them out for NYE…  It’s festive, right?  Gracen didn’t mind that they were a week late.  In fact, she was pretty stoked on her paper crown and wooden birdie ornament.

IMG 3659Grae absolutely gobbled up her veggie rolls, miso soup, and edamame beans and then it was time for a bath, some stories, and her last night of sleep in 2011.  Sweet dreams, baby girl.
