We headed home for some baths to warm up and pj's to snuggle in. We then made pizzas all together and started to hand out our 2012 Gatchel awards. They were as follows:
Mikayla: Most Stylish
Noah: Best Penmanship
Grant: Best "Fixer"
Kristi: Most Creative
I think if you've followed the blog at all over the past year, all these are totally self-explanatory ;-) It was fun to celebrate the accomplishments we've all had over the past twelve months.
We settled in to watch "Hook", chow down on the pizzas which were then followed up by some absolutely phenomenal skillet cookies. We also did our Gatchel predictions from 2013. We tucked them away and will pull them out next New Year's Eve to see how we did. We then all toasted each other and the year (Mikayla and Noah got special glasses and drank a whole bottle of sparkling cider themselves) and then followed it up with a countdown complete with poppers. Note to Grant and I: Buy better poppers next year :-p The kiddos were tucked in snuggly by 9pm and Grant and I ushered in the New Year at midnight with the traditional ball drop. Here's hoping that 2013 will be just as wonderful!
Ready to sled
