Happy New Year's Eve!

Hope everyone has a fun and safe New Year's Eve tonight! Our big plans include staying in and trying to stay awake to watch the ball drop. Grandma Marshall is driving our new car out today from Michigan so we will all ring in the new year together.

Well, I had a baby :)

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions and will you make more for next year?
