The New Year

Saturday, January 7, 2012

Last Saturday we gathered with friends for a Swedish Fika put on by Kierstan and her sister Maddie. It was even featured by foodbuzz in their 24x24 campaign. It did not disappoint.
Cinnamon buns, check.

Who am I kidding, I had no idea what any of this, save the fruit, prior to Saturday tasted like!

And then that night, before our annual appetizers and movie, we head on over to Aaron's house for what's become a regular NYE party.

Isaac almost knocked me off my feet because he didn't know what kind of shoes I was wearing and he wanted to check them out. Naturally then meant trying to take them off my feet. Apparently I need to dress up more.

We're so thankful to have friends that have adjusted with us as we became parents!

They kind of love our kids.
