New Years Eve

Crazy good times! We took the kids with us over to the Nerland's house and partied like we were still teenagers. We enjoyed some Rock Band, a little game of Dirty Minds (perfect group to play it with), Pictionary, a lot of laughing, tons of food, the necessary banging of pots and pans at midnight along with a few fireworks, followed by more laughing and a few rounds of Wii bowling.
Tallula tried her hardest to stay awake and ring in the New Year but alas she gave up and fell asleep around 11. Tate was in and out until 1am when he finally conked out. Alan took a nap between the hours of 2-3am. Taylor and Tanner on the other hand stayed awake until we got home at 4am. That's some serious New Years eve dedication if you ask me. Our kids are well trained in parting like rock stars!
I couldn't have asked for a better way to bring in a new year than spending it with great friends who have supported us through a tough year. Thanks for your love and freindship guys! I'm looking forward to a new year with less stress and more joy.
