We ended up celebrating New Years at the end of January and it was awesome! The actual New Years Eve was spent cuddled up on the couch with all of my sickies. Everyone caught a nasty cold - such a bummer. I had made big plans to head down to San Antonio and that trip had to be postponed too! Anyway, we made a pact with the Soters that we would make it up and so we did! We had a Mexican fiesta - taquitos, chimichangas, 7-layer bean dip, salsa, lots of cookies, and our bottles of IBC root bear. It's is SO SO SO wonderful and fun to have our Mandi and Steve living so close to us! All the kids love each other and it reminds me of when I was a kid and playing with my cousins. I'm glad my kids have some cousins to get to know and play with.
This isn't the best picture - it's hard to get so many kids to be excited about sitting on the couch and smiling when they want to be wrestling and playing games!
Brenan, Keslie, Thomas, Katie, Anika, Sawyer, Nicholas, Matthew, and LizzieOnce we got the kids in bed we played some rummikub and quelf and then went to the couch to wait for our midnight kisses. We struggled staying awake!
Haha! Gone are the days of staying up until 3 am playing Phase 10! It finally hit midnight and we got our kisses.
Steve got a kiss in his sleep.
Sawyer was more awake than any of us and excited to get a kiss from her daddy.
Then Mandi and I took a couple dorky ones because that's how we roll!
Love you guys! Thanks for ringing in the new month with us!
Happy (very late!) New Years everyone! We are looking forward to an exciting 2012 and wish all of you a very wonderful year!
