new years with the poiriers

mom, dad, and mack came up to TN on the wednesday after christmas and helped us bring in the new year together. they of course came bearing gifts and the kids were excited to have another christmas with them. they just love having time with the three of them. kenzie and the kids all got along really well this time and it was great having them here. the picture below might be one of my favorites right now! i just love it. (poor jori slept through another christmas)
me and my beautiful sis, mackenzie.
gram snuggling with her girl raelyn
since moms birthday is on new years day, we always try to do something a little special for her. on new years eve, her brother and sister in law came over for a visit and we all went to a fantastic rib place for dinner. the kids and i made her a blueberry cake that was super yummy and we even got fireworks and put on a little show for her. the kids loved it, probably more than mom did :)

daves parents came to dinner with us and then watched the fire works show as well.
we had to grab a picture of the kids with the grandparents and mack. we sure did have a run time together. wish kenzie could have seen some of the great snow, but we did have some really nice weather while they were here.
and one last shot of all the girls. kenzie got the little girls their camo shirts. :)
happy new year!

frm kenzie: i love brennas face in the last picture :)
frm mom:these were all so great, and makes the great time we had there even more memorable. Jori's room is one of my favorite rooms you have done (is that a boo boo on my grandbaby's forehead?) I totally enjoyed every second of my birthday celebration with all of you, including the mother-in-law fireworks!! Thankyou for making me feel special.
