A whole new year!

We rang in 2018 in the usual fashion: game night at home, streaming the ball drop, and crashing afterwards.  Super exciting.  After venturing out last NYE and having fun, but also icy excitement, we decided to stay home this year!  Also, we just like being home.

We ate Cheetos (a NYE tradition, apparently)

And played Apples to Apples (probably a new NYE tradition!!) It’s a very silly game and the kids laughed and laughed!


That’s more like it.

Walking the dog at 10pm in the crazy cold. I tried to take a picture by the light of the full moon… but it didn’t turn out so well. :)

BB-8 joined in the fun.  Technology is crazy these days!!

We finally got the see the ball drop!! They didn’t cut away this time. Yay!! Happy 2018!!

And then Eve reminded us about the Family Fun Jar!  Despite it being past midnight now, we couldn’t NOT open it!

She looks tired!

Remember the solar eclipse?!

It was a good year for the Johnson family.

We started 2018 with a late morning all around.  Lex got up around 9:30, Eve and I both got up around 10:30!!  Poor Alan only made it until 7:30 though. He had work on the brain.  :(  We spent the day reading and listening to audio books and playing Minecraft and moving datdec customers from one serve to another.  Can you guess who did what?! :)  I was going to go into the library for a few hours, but that didn’t happen.  Overall it was a calm and peaceful day.  A perfect way to start the new year.

Oh yea, we played with Snapchat for awhile too. :)

And explored the new AR Filters on my phone’s camera app.

Mostly we just did a lot of this though. <3
