This year we celebrated New Year's Eve with a candle light dinner at home. We enjoyed Chinese food from Wok on Wheels (complete with chop sticks) and Martinelli's sparkling cider. During dinner Wade asked everyone to tell us what their favorite thing about 2010 was. My first thought was that Mayley survived RSV. Wade agreed and added our family trip to yellowstone where we were able to see a black bear. Ryan said our family trip to yellowstone. Colby said his birthday (which broke my heart because that's when we were in the midst of driving back and forth to salt lake dividing our time between home and being with Mayley in the hospital. Thank goodness for my mom! Some how she managed to make it a wonderful day and made him feel special, in all our chaos!) Colby also was grateful he was baptized. Taylor's highlight was getting Daisy ( our border collie puppy). so over all I think we can count 2010 as a great year.
We gave Mayley a bath and got her ready for bed...
Then Wade and I played some games with the boys.
The boys were determined to stay awake until midnight, while wade and I thought sleep sounded more enticing.
Then today we joined Scott, Teresa, and Brad at Wade's parents house for the annual New Years Day feast and football tradition. Where we eat lots of yummy food, visit and and watch football.
I took my camera to take pictures of all the yummy food we get to enjoy....but when I got home I realized the only pictures I took was Mayley letting Grandpa hold her. For the past several months anytime grandpa would put his arms out to Mayley and offer to hold her, she would crinkle up her nose at him, whine, and turn away. If we forced her to go to him she would burst into tears. So I was very happy today to watch her sit contentedly on her grandpas lap.
