Happy New Year
I hope that the new year brings happiness and fulfillment to all of you!!!!
We stayed home last night and partied with the kids. We were joking and talking about when we used to go out and party. I wouldn't trade staying home with the kids for the fanciest party in the world.
Our good friend Jan had left (way too many) Christmas presents for them and wanted them to open them on New Years Eve since she didn't feel well and opted to stay home. Then we played with toys and watched some of the fireworks in the neighbourbood.
We came in to toast the new year with some lemonaide and then went out to play with some sparklers and a few fireworks that Daddy had stashed away.
They all managed to stay awake and be pleasant. Bob had to work today so we went to bed soon after midnight.
Jan and her neice and nephew came over today to visit. (wish we had waited to let them open their presents so she could watch them) I wish her neice Caroline lived closer as she would be my babysitter. Peyton cried and hugged her when they were leaving and didn't want them to go. Spencer loved playing with her nephew Jesse, he was 11. He said it was nice not being the oldest for a change. Our friend Beth came for a little while after work too.
