1st Post of 2013

It is January 22, and I am just now getting around to posting to blogging for the first time this year.  My 2012 blog book came in the mail the other day, and I was so excited to get it!  It is so much fun to see memories from the previous year.  That's what I LOVE most about blogging!

I have a lot of catching up to do from the past few weeks.  Kevin built Elia a cool, new Lego table.

Ava got to meet some pretty cool storm chasers at school.  

We went to a really fun paint party at Meredith's house.

We also went to see the Harlem Globetrotters.  That was a very fun night!

The girls got to get the Globetrotters to sign their basketball.  

Our dishwasher just about flooded our kitchen so we had to buy a new one.

Of course, the box was the most fun!  Remind me next year to find a large box when we go Black Friday shopping.  This box has been a source of entertainment for days!

KK came down and brought Allie and Caleb.  Jason also brought the boys over.  We went to McDonalds and then to my house.  They played Twister.

They also played basketball where the dishwasher box was the ticket booth.  They made tickets, had pretzels at the game, and had a ton of fun!

The other thing we have done this month is try to focus on eating healthier.  I have been doing a 21 day body blast and so far, I am down almost 8 pounds.  I have found many vegetables I LOVE that I didn't realized I loved.

The best thing about it is I got Ava to eat broccoli.  I never thought I would see the day that would happen.  Ava is definitely my picky eater (even worse than me if that is even possible).  Elia is the best eater and eats healthier than most nutrition experts.  

Here's to hoping 2013 is just as good as 2012!
