starting 2015

The past few weeks have been long and full of celebrations and not enough sleep and ending one year as we start 2015. As my brother kept saying, we're now as close to 2030 as we are to 2000. There's a weird thought.

I started the week at my grandparents' house in Vermont, where we enjoyed the cold weather, ate a lot  of delicious food, bought some amazing cheese, saw some glassblowing, and admired the new porch they've added to their house. On New Year's Eve, Sam had to work during the day, so Oliver and I joined my mom and siblings in Boston. We visited the new Harvard art museum and then went to see some of the ice sculptures set up in Faneuil Hall and at the aquarium. It was fun, but also freezing out and there was loads of traffic. That night, we took Oliver to a party Sam's friends were hosting. We were pretty exhausted, but had fun playing games and staying up late anyway. Oliver refused to sleep there, but was pretty happy regardless, so that was okay.

We started 2015 with plenty of family time. On Thursday morning we had a delicious brunch with my aunt, her fiancĂ© and his children. We made ebelskivers, pain au chocolate, bacon, scrambled eggs and bought oranges and orange juice. We then got to work on the Paris puzzle my dad had out while the boys watched some football (not something that the many girls in our family know much about). 

My sister did some sewing projects and I helped her pick out a Christmas present to bring back to college and give to her boyfriend. I got sick (fingers crossed I don't give it to Oliver) and we had our first snow of 2015 on Saturday. We watched a lot of "Office" episodes, finished lots of chocolate and sparkling cider, and continued to do lots of laundry. (It never ends when you have a baby.) We visited Sam's parents today where we did another puzzle and Oliver charmed everyone with his giggling and smiles. I'm pretty sure that 2015 is going to be excellent, and I can't wait to experience it.
