Ringing in the New Year - 2015

Happy New Year friends!!! We had a great time ringing in the new year with our sweet friends! Before we headed to Justin and Melody's house, Mallory wanted to put her 2015 glasses on so I let her and when I asked for a picture, this is the pose I got. Love her!

We all brought appetizers and munchies to eat on and all the food was so good! Instead of each of us finding a babysitter, Melody asked one of the girls in her Sunday School class to come and play with the kids. We love Alex and she was great! 

Mallory loves all her friends so much and they all were excited to put all of their New Year's gear on for a picture! I'm laughing as I look at this because Will would put Liesl by Ella for the picture and then she would walk away and Will would put her back and then she would walk away again and repeat. She wasn't interested in the group photo :)

The Estes Family ready to ring in 2015!!

Love these crazy girls! 

Now for our not crazy photo! Seriously grateful for these friends and their genuine friendship! Glad that I get to do life with them and their families! Can't wait to see what all 2015 holds for all of us!

So thankful that I get to be by this man's side every year!

At midnight, we all watched the ball drop and yelled "Happy New Year"

It was such a fun night playing games and just hanging out with our friends! 

In 2015, we can't wait to meet all the new babies that are coming this year and we can't wait to see all the God has in store for us as a family. I saw this tweet by Jennie Allen and as soon as I read it, I knew it was for me. I struggle with wondering if I'm supposed to be doing something bigger, greater than I am, but I know God just wants a daily, personal relationship from me and He will use me in the ways he wants to - big things and little things. I shared it with Brian and he and I both agreed that this so true for both of us.

Happy New Year again!

I didn't know Melody hosted??!!! I can't believe she actually invited people to her HOUSE!

The Silly Chic Pic is the BEST!
