Happy New Year!

Our original plans for the evening got canceled. We were supposed to go to a child friendly party with friends. Unfortunately the hosting family was not feeling well. So we came up with plan B.

Plan B consisted of finger foods for dinner served on the coffee table while watching football. This is a huge treat for our family. We never sit anywhere but the eat in island and we very rarely watch TV during a meal. Everyone took baths before dinner so we had pajama dinner. Another big treat.

After dinner we went outside to pop poppers. Once we came inside we had a conga line and were basically silly for a while. Then we toasted in the New Year with sparkling grape juice. Then we sent the littles to bed. The bigs stayed up and played rummy, five card draw, and yahtzee before calling it a night.

The kids attempted a sleepover again. Again, it failed miserably and everyone is now quietly sleeping in their own beds.

2009 was an interesting year at our house. Here's hoping 2010 is a great year for everyone.
