We watched the clock tick over to 2015 in the fine company of the Smiths. 6 week old baby Cameron was so excited that he didn’t sleep the whole evening, and his parents seriously impressed Will and I by staying at our place through midnight. I neglected to take a single photo of course. It was a delightful evening, Lucie and Teddy entertained with their pre-sleep-tired-energy-antics for a full 30 minutes before bedtime, and the grown-ups enjoyed food and cocktails until midnight when we all went immediately to bed. How things have changed in the last 2 years! New Year’s Eve 2012 when I was huge and pregnant was spent at a big party where we stayed out well past 2am.
New Year’s Day we visited the Peggy Notebart Nature Museum in the city where we’re lucky enough to know a girl on the “inside” and got to visit some animals behind the scenes. 2 Russian Blue rats surprised me by being absolutely cute, friendly, and fluffy. Teddy loved them, and Lucie was wow-ed by the turtles.
We have had a busy and happy holiday season, but I am glad to get back to our regular routines. The kids are in for a rude awakening tomorrow morning when Dada goes back to work and we head our for a Monday Costco restock the house trip.
Here are a few of my favorite moments from the past year, here’s looking forward to an adventurous 2015!
