The company Brennan works for shuts down between Christmas and New Years. It is nice to get that time off without using vacation but Iowa winter doesn't really lend itself to having a grand old time. This year Mara and Ben and co. made the drive up from Texas to spend a few days which was great! It was still winter in Iowa but at least we had company!
We made lots of treats, like more rice krispie peanut butter balls. And played lots of games, old and new.
Lucy loved holding Emry even though Emry wasn't often cooperative.
The day they left was New Year's Eve. It was the most anticlimactic New Year's Eve of my life. We were all tired out from the week and we just hung out at home, played some games and built with legos with the kids. Kind of lame I guess, but just what we needed.
