So we flew on over the 31st, celebrating our Boston New Year's on the plane, watching the 1 1/2 inch ball drop in New York from our seat back t.v.s, and then did it all over again a few hours later in Seattle. It was a really great way to start the New Year, and the faces of shock we got when we showed up on their doorstep were pretty awesome.
Job's sister, her husband, and 4 kids all live there, and his parents are there for an extended visit. So we had a week of reunion and fun, just relaxing, site-seeing, eating, game playing, getting spoiled etc. Job and I really see the beauty in living so far from family; that way, it is always exciting when you come to visit.
We had planned to fly out Monday, but because of weather in Boston and the Midwest we were delayed several days. Bad for me and work, (luckily they are so flexible and understanding) good for a few extra days of family time. I think Job's mom would have been o.k. if we had been stuck there forever.
So, that's the story of our New Year's trip. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking. Happy 2014! I feel this every year, but it is just going to be a great one, ya know?! Exciting things will be happening for us in 2014, I can feel it in my toes.
My father-in-law is a great baker, and I am a great taster.

Job and his sister are close in age, and were best friends growing up. I mean, how cute are they!
Here they are, and I love them all.
