The last week of 2017 was a pretty good week. On Tuesday, Kevin and I went to see "The Greatest Showman," which was fantastic! We both loved it, and I immediately bought the soundtrack, and it has been playing on repeat ever since. The kids are loving the music as well, even though they haven't see then movie yet. Arthur switches his favorite song from day to day - sometimes it is "Come Alive," and sometimes it is "Rewrite the Stars."
On Friday night, there was a big Stake youth activity, and since Derek had just turned twelve, he got to go. He LOVED it. He got involved right away, playing volleyball.
Lily, on the other hand, made herself at home playing a game in the game room, all alone. (I need to get this girl back to being more social.) She did eventually hang out with her friend, Geri, thank goodness.
Derek went from activity to activity, having a blast, but his favorite was singing karaoke. He was the only boy with a big group of girls, and it was so fun. When I came in to check it out, he was singing "Ghostbusters." Awesome!
On Saturday night, Kevin and I threw a last minute pre-New Year's Eve party with some other couples. It was a blast, and I laughed so hard that my face hurt. I wish I had thought to take a picture, but we were having too much fun :). It was so much fun getting to know everyone better, and finally meeting some of my friends' husbands. It was the perfect way to finish off the year.
