New Years 2013

My Aunt Yasmin, Cousin Sasha and Cousin Juanita all came to stay with us for the New Years!
Here's all the girls.......Sasha's in there, just hiding....

I made us some New Years Snacks...Stuffed Mushrooms

Pizza Monkey a little brown but still delish

My mother in law Teresa's famous deviled eggs

and mini banana splits!

Landon taught my family the game of Farkle, a favorite on the Gann's side of the family.

Landon thought there were NO RULES!
"Put your shirt back on!"

Everyone liked the game, Yasmin liked it so much she said she was gonna buy it.

Look how close we all were...except Landon, he kinda won.

Early New years day we scurried up to Dillards for their big New Years Day sale!
Too bad the sales associate told us they opened at 8 when it was really 9.  So we sat in the parking lot for an hour and waited.........worth the wait though!

Me and Sasha scored some awesome whiskey colored riding boots. That's what I was on a mission for.
I was just about to give up on finding anything in my size when Sasha walked up and said look what I found....just laying there was a size 7 1/2.....I grabbed the next sales associate and asked if they had just one more pair.....wahoo they did!  I told him "thank you soooo much, I'd jump up and down but I'm pregnant and not really supposed to do that ha!"
Mission accomplished!

We ended the day with a nice fire and some games on the Wii

Their visit wouldn't be complete without learning some Gangnam Style!!!

HEEEY sexy lady!!!

My New Years resolution this year is to have more peace.  I had already decided that and then our preacher had a great sermon on Christmas Eve about it.  We live in America, and we still have no peace.  Our bad economy would be another countries dream economy....people worry about the dumbest things sometimes.  That's one thing I never ever forget is how blessed and rich we really are to live here.  I felt super bad shopping for mattresses last weekend cause most people in the world don't have one.
  It's a freakin luxury to have one if you think about it.  
I never forget or take that kind of stuff for granted.  We have it good here!
We serve a God, the prince of peace.
  I worry to much and just want to care a little less.  I may not be good at spending a daily quiet time with God but I do pray...a lot, like all the time all day long.  So this peace thing is something I'm gonna have to work on in my mind cause God's got my heart covered.  Wish me luck and good luck with yours!


  1. Oh my goodness, James's family is obsessed with Farkle...I had never even heard of it until I married into his family! We've played many rounds in my 10 years of being married! Ha! Looks like you had a blast with your are you feeling??

  2. I've never heard of it either! I'm feeling good! Hope u r too! Can't wait to find out what you're having!
