Goodbye 2015, hello 2016!

Typically on New Year's Eve we go out to a fancy dinner with Lollie and Papa, but this year they went away to a bed-n-breakfast for a few days so it was just the 4 of us hangin' together.

Last night the girls spent the night with Grandma and Grandpa so J and I had a date night out with another couple from church.  Yipee!  It was actually the first time Mei Mei spent the night away from us and she did so well.  What a relief, because we've had some teary nights here of late and she's been talking about being afraid of monsters lately too.  Poor thing :(
Since we didn't have reservations anywhere, we knew we'd have to go early and also knew we wanted some kind of ethnic food.  Earlier in the day we had driven by a new Lebanese restaurant so we decided to go back there and try it.

It certainly wasn't fancy but everything tasted sooo good!  Mei Mei was in a bit of a mood as you can tell but snapped out of it quickly.
Waiting for our food.
Yum.  We gobbled it all down.  Now we all reek like garlic, ha!
When we got home everyone put on their jammies and we played one of Mei Mei's new games that she got for Christmas.  Then we went around and talked about goals we each have for 2016.
Daddy--being more deliberate and intentional with friends
Mama--being obedient to the one small thing that the Lord places before her
The Noodle--being a better sister to Mei Mei and taking even more AR tests in school
Mei Mei--not fighting with her sister
After the girls went to bed, J and I cracked open the champagne (it is New Years after-all!) and watched the movie The Butler.  We certainly didn't party-hearty but it was still a great New Year's Eve!  See you in 2016!!
