We had a fun New Year's Eve. Lee brought home some fireworks and the girls were on pins and needles as to whether it was going to rain or not until we finally got to go outside. As it ended up it was sprinkling on and off but nothing we couldn't handle for a few minutes. Bethani was wide-eyed at the whole event. She loved the sparklers...
But she wasn't too sure about the fireworks themselves ;)...
Andrew was too cute. We have never had a child interested in the fireworks at his age. Bri and Tori slept through their first fireworks. Bethani would watch them on the ground but she wouldn't follow them into the air like Andrew did, he has amazing eye control (is that what you would call it? Hmmm...).
Afterwards we went inside to enjoy the rest of the evening in front of the fireplace making s'mores and roasting marshmallows. My heart about melted when I walked in to the living room and found them all laying on the floor in a row, too cute...
I love those big blue eyes!!!
Bethi's first s'more...
I think she liked it ;).
We're waiting, and waiting.... :).
(Don't worry, it's just sparkling grape juice!)
As the new year ushered in Lee led the family in a prayer of thanksgiving for the blessings the old year had brought us and prayed God's hand over us throughout the new year. That annual prayer time is one of my most favorite times of every year.
We are truly very,
"I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving." ~Psalm 69:30
