Ok, it's not like they won the Super Bowl or anything. But NFC division champs? I'll take it!
I admit, I am a fair-weather fan for the Vikings. I mean, it's not my home state, but I have to root for someone. I was pleased that the Lions beat the Bears, as well. It was a good football weekend!
New Year's Eve was pretty quiet for us - a yummy dinner followed by some puzzle making (Puzzle putting together? Not sure of the term here.), and then a "midnight" countdown for Emily courtesy of Netflix at 9pm. I am not above lying to my kid. Trav and I managed to stay up until midnight (much harder for me than him), and we got to sleep in on Friday morning! Well...if you consider 7:30 sleeping in. I do.
Travis took Emily sledding and ice skating with some friends. Our daughters are almost exactly a year apart and they go to daycare together, so it's fun getting together with them for stuff like this, too.

I guess Emily was very surprised at how difficult ice skating is. I'm sure with some more practice, she'll be skating with the best of them in no time. The chair in the picture was used to hold onto for balance while the girls learned to push themselves forward. It will definitely take some practice.
Unfortunately, I didn't go because I was at home putting all the Christmas decorations away. It really is a full day's work! But it's nice to have the house back to normal. I also do not know how to ice skate, so I would have been on my butt just as much, if not more, than Emily!
The rest of the weekend was filled with the normal running, cleaning, laundry, etc. Boy, what an exciting life we lead!
Are you starting 2016 off right? Do you know how to ice skate?
