Ringing in the New Year

For the last 7 years, my husband has to work so we ring in the New Year at Great Wolf Lodge.  The boys love all the activities and of course, staying the night in a hotel.  They generally all make it until midnight...yes, even Hailey.  This year was no different.   

Love the gingerbread house again this year.

 The boys had their faces painted, watched the magician, had dinner and then headed down to the "big party".

Hailey didn't want to wear her hat for long.

My annual New Year's Eve picture with the kids

Hailey had to double check that Wiley wasn't touching her.

I know it is incredibly mean, but I love this picture!

Hailey definitely lives up to her pj's..."It's Fun to be Me"

Hailey was "dancing" so hard in her stroller that she made it move about 5 feet forward.  Ian enjoyed himself while Brayden quietly watched. 

About 12:05 a.m. as we were heading back to our room, Hailey crashed and the boys weren't too far behind her!

 I rang in the new year with my favorite 4 people and look forward to what 2013 brings!  I hope everyone has a fabulous new year!
