New Year's Eve

Goodness things have been quite busy around here the last week. I'll recap more in future posts but our last week was all about New Years, the stomach bug (yuck!), having Nana and Papa in town, our squadron's holiday party (that I helped host!), and freezing, freezing weather.  So for right now, I'll start off with New Year's and hopefully have us all caught up in the next couple days!

For New Year's we decided to have a little dinner party with our friends.  It's rare that all of us have husbands in town but this year we actually did!  We gathered with our kids at our friend Liz and Josh's house and we had a great time!
So happy to have him home this year! :)

The ladies. You would think there was a dress code: either black, gray, or blue!

And the guys! With their pattern or dark solid colored shirts, haha!

All of the sweet kids...and Judah's giant panda bear...the hit of the night in kid land.  And why Brady always to have his arm around someone, I'll never know!

Then there's this little stinker!  We had planned on only staying until about 9 or 10 (at the latest!). The kids were either sleeping or watching Polar Express and the adults were playing games at the table when we realized that it was 11:30!! What?! We felt like horrible parents but decided we could make it at least 30 more minutes and then leave right after midnight.

Parents of the year award here...ringing in the new year with our 19 month old!

Girlfriend wanted the champagne and/or the cranberries in it....that's her "BITE?!" face

The midnight shot! 4 of the children still awake....2 of them mine.  What can I say, they're night owls! And slept in until 10:00 the next day. Will not be making a New Year's tradition of that....they can maybe stay up about 6 years!

And Layla, starting the New Year off cool.

Looks like a really fun New Year's Eve! :) I always love the pictures you post of your kiddos - they are SO adorable! :)

Time flies when you're having fun! There's nothing wrong with letting the kiddos stay up til midnight (if they can)....except for maybe the out of whack sleeping schedule after that! lol :)

My kids are much more hardcore than I am. I was struggling to stay up and Veronica was breezing through the night having a blast with her little friends.
