Happy New Year!

Since Darren had to work last night, the kids and I stayed home and partied. My friend Sheri and 3 of her kids stopped by to play a few games. We had a little treat and tried to have a toast with sparkling cider, but I couldn't get the darn bottle open. We had milk instead.

My son is very competitive. ( I wonder where he gets that from?)

Chloe as she was heading to bed at about 9:45.

Riley lasted till about 10:15. She got to see Miley Cyrus sing on TV and then zonked.


Luke was all talk when Riley fell asleep. He was so excited to see the fireworks and stay up till midnight. Poor boy fell asleep at 11:50 and I could not get him to wake up.

HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GOOD ONE LAST NIGHT AND HAVE A GREAT 2008!

Poor Luke, only 10 more minues! We stayed home and watched movies till midnight. I put the kids to bed at regular time because they don't even understand what New Years is. Its better that way for all of us today :)

I don't even know what time Quincy went to bed. When her dad finally put her in her crib...she thanked him.

I love the way Chloe studies the actions(and reactions)of the older kids...don't you just wonder what goes through a child's mind?

Riley gets prettier with every picture! Tell Luke to cover-up...it's WINTER for heaven's sake! Burrr....you've gotta bundle-up at my house!

Roger, Steve, and I went to see National Treasure-2 on New Year's Eve...It was a good flick.
Roger and I couldn't wait for midnight; I can't believe that we now consider midnight to be LATE!! Getting OLD is so boring!

(and to respond to your post on my blog, we did see dorway. he was so cute, the typical sweet little old man doctor. i really liked him.)

Luke looks like I did at about that time! I am a loser and couldn't hang. All the kids were in bed, and my eyes were way to heavy! heehee guess I'm getting old!

Hey so I'm just going to add you to my buddy list. I always go to Andrea's to get to you, but that way I won't have to. Looks like you had a fun New Year's Eve too!
