Shortly after we were off the phone and I was cleaning, getting ready for my friends to come over tonight for a NYE celebration, there was a knock on the door. There was a delivery man holding the most beautiful flowers. Alex had sent me flowers with a sweet note saying he wished he could be here tonight.
After the kids were up from their quiet time, we played around with their New Year's Eve crowns. We were able to get some fun pictures. I didn't think Hudson would wear his, but to my surprise, when he saw Madison and I wearing ours, he kept pointing to his head and saying please...that was his way of asking for his crown! So below are our silly pictures that we took for Alex so he could see us and feel like he was part of the fun!
The many faces of Hudson!
Me and my babies!
More fun with the crowns!
I didn't have anyone to take a picture of the three of us, so this was my best attempt!
Once the kids went to bed, a couple of my friends came over that live in our neighborhood and we just hung out and ate a plethora of homemade snacks and goodies! We also just had fun catching up with each other. Once we were all satisfied and full, we took it up a notch and brought out the competitiveness and played some serious rounds of Catch Phrase and a rousing game of Guesstures. I would just like to add that the ladies won the Catch Phrase match and we also won Guesstures (by 2 points).
The Ladies: April, myself, and Brittney....the Champions of the Night :)
The Guys: Matt and Seth...our fierce competitors

This is a picture of me toasting to Alex and being thankful that it's finally the year 2013.
The year Alex and I will be reunited! :)
Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!
