New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve was a bit of a bust.  We were not up to hosting a big party but told the kids they could have their friends over.  Karlie had a group of friends come over and Kaitlin had a buddy too.  However all of Hank's friends were busy or on vacation and Hailey went to a party.  It was the first year we didn't ring it in all together.  Hailey being gone is becoming a new normal and I don't like it at all.  But alas, this is the deal with growing up.
Everyone did their own thing leaving it feeling like an ordinary night with friends.  The next day we all agreed we have to plan a better New Year's next year.  More celebrating, less naps and even Hailey said she wants to ring in the New Year with us.  She did FaceTime us as the ball dropped.  She is such a sweet girl.  Hoping that our start to the New Year is no indication of 2017, but merely a launching point that can only get better.
