Playing Catch-Up and Happy 2014!

Happy 2014!!  A new year so I thought maybe it was time for a new look!  What do ya think?  I'm a sucker for animal print.  Sassy! :-)

After my Christmas post last week, which is HERE, I meant to do a couple more posts with Christmas and holiday related stuff, but of course, I ran out of time.  Story of my life, ha!  So I think I'll just play a little catch up now!

After our trip to El Dorado for Christmas, we pretty much spent the entire weekend with Chris' family, including the uncle, aunt, and cousins from Texas, and had Christmas all of his family.  We had a great visit with everyone!
This is Sara Kate and Hannah with cousin Brandon from Texas.  We were missing cousin Zachary and Hayden.  Don't think we got a single picture of all 5 of them!
Hayden played with my phone and took quite a few selfies.  He was proud of himself and now I have a whole string of Hayden faces in my photos now! :-)
Sara Kate got a new princess purse.  She was excited.
A big event of that weekend was I took Sara Kate to her very first movie at the theatre.
We went with cousin Hannah and Aunt Jenny to see 'Frozen.'  It was so good!  The girls loved being together, and Sara Kate did great in her first experience at the movies.  I'm sure having Hannah there helped!  These girls are seriously the best of friends and it's so precious.
We took our tree down and while we had the big empty space, Chris took some amazing pictures of Sara Kate with Christmas lights.  She's my little model, and of course, I think he's quite the amazing photographer!
I went back to work the Monday after Christmas, and Tuesday I got off 4 hours early for New Years Eve. Thank you government!  We spent the evening at our friends, the Shreve's.  
Their son Remy is Sara Kate's 'boyfriend.'  They've been buddies since they were tiny babies at daycare and they are still buddies even though they don't go to school together anymore.  We have this same picture of them from New Years Eve last year and joke that they'll be having school dance pictures and prom pictures taken on this same mantel in the future.  Ha!
Speaking of school, Thursday, January 2, was Sara Kate's first day of school for 2014!  She was so excited to go back and see her friends after being gone a week and a half!
In other 2014 related news, the princess obsession is in full swing at the Michaels household.  Sara Kate had a very 'princess Christmas,' and several nights in a row she insisted on wearing her new princess nightgown (thank you Aunt Laura!!) and brushing her hair with her new princess hair brush while saying, 'I have to brush my hair so it can be so long like 'Tangled'.'  She cracks me up.
I'll end my 'holiday catch up' post with a funny video...Sara Kate singing Jingle Bells.  It's a classic. Again, she cracks me up.  And yes, she's in the bathtub.  Don't judge! :-)
Hope everyone had a great end to 2013 and has had a great start to 2014!!
