 Our first selfie in our new house in New Jersey after driving all night. It was a crazy draining trip to unpack with 3 kids. But we survived, somehow! I can honestly say I never would have seen myself living in New Jersey, but that is the beauty of life, it takes us lots of unexpected twists and turns!
 Then look at our rockin' New Year. We were so exhausted from our crazy move we partied so hard on New Year.
 We got the girls room unpacked first. It is a huge room! This house is bigger than I ever thought I would live in! I love all the space!
 Jon is my favorite person to watch work.....he is great!
 We got our first visitors only a few days after we got to New Jersey. My brother and his girlfriend came to see us (ok mostly they wanted to explore New York City!)

Wrapping up Ohio

 Abby with the laundry fairy (Grandpa)

 Grandma requested to be the first to feed Jane solid food. She was quite a fan of the new sweeter flavor.

On our last day in Ohio we went to an indoor playground to get some energy out. We had a great time running around. We then loaded up the van and drove overnight to New Jersey!

Hanging with Granny

 One of my favorite places on earth is my Grandma's house. I love to see my girls having a great time there too. We got to spend lots of time there this trip. The first picture is just hilarious. My Grandma makes the best faces ever.
 My girls LOVE making cookies!

 Abby might be slightly obsessed with Uncle Zach. She could almost always be found using Zach as her own personal furniture.

Loveland Castle

 There is an all stone castle in Loveland Ohio. I went there in elementary school, and thought my girls would absolutely love it! It is small, but feels perfectly large to little kids! We drug all the family with us, and I think we all had a great time!

 Christmas Eve was a great day with family. We spent the day at Granny's house. Nate and Amy came over for a few hours to play. Then the girls colored nativity sets from Aunt Val. Then set out their milk and cookies for Santa. Abby was very worried that Santa was going to drink her gatorade she was saving in the fridge. The first thing she did Christmas morning was check the fridge for it.

 The adults stayed up to play some games, and had a great time.
 Christmas morning the girls tore through their presents in no time at all. They were so excited about everything they opened. They got lots of disney barbies. We all were so blessed with everything we have, but mostly with each other.
