Holiday celebrations have come and gone.  It was a great holiday with family and friends.  We went to Moses Lake to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday right before Christmas.  Those festivites were followed by an early Christmas celebration with the Anderson side – the last one in the house that my parents have lived in for the past 26 years.  Weird to say goodbye and crazy to think I’ll have to memorize a new address once their house is built.

On Christmas eve we headed back west to celebrate with the Marino family.  It is so fun to have such a large family on Tony’s side and I can’t wait for even more cousins to be running around next year.

As we wrapped up the holidays, we had a quiet New Years Eve this year watching a few movies and toasting 2013 at midnight as we watched the fireworks go off from the Space Needle.  We cannot wait for the memories and adventures in store for us this year!
