Reegan is finally understanding the whole concept of presents and unwrapping them, and after every gift she would demand 'open!' And insist that the toy needed to come out of it's packaging. We are usually quite minimalist when it comes to birthdays and Christmas with her though, for various reasons but she seemed to really enjoy her little green ride on tractor that her daddy picked for her.
After all the madness of food and family and presents, we drank even more and spent hours playing Cards Against Humanity. If you haven't played it then I strongly suggest it, it's hilarious and very offensive at the same time. Perfect for our bunch. New years eve was spent with a friend and her boyfriend, our first proper couple friends who we tend to double date with often. We ate cheap party food and played Settlers of Catan,which I haven't played in years and since I was the only person present who had played it before and couldn't remember how to play properly it took us about two hours to really get into it. We did some small fireworks in the garden and even though poor Inca was safely locked in the front room she had a bit of a panic and tried to dig under the Christmas tree. It's odd because she's never had much of a problem with fireworks before (hot air balloons are her nemesis) she also calmed down pretty quickly when the last of the neighbourhood fireworks finished.
So now that it's all over I'm diving headfirst back into wedding planning because our wedding day on October 1st is looming. So far I have left to book a marquee, a bar, the food and then just DIY bits and bobs for decoration. We also have to save up twice as hard because we could be faced with eviction in September if we don't have the money to buy the house we are living in. So it's all stressing me out a bit at the moment. I kind of wish we could just skip straight to the wedding and be done with it.
I'm starting a new tattoo this month though so I have that to look forward to. Happy new year everyone, who's ready to take on 2016?
