Don't you look this good after pulling an all nighter?
Ha, ha. Actually we had a surprisingly good day after such a rough night. And now...can I get a whoot-whoop?!
HAPPY NEW YEARS!
We are ringing it in in style this year, bells on our toes, silly string and party hats.
I watched the later half of Shrek 2 while putting the kids to bed and then started editing the photos from the day.
A glass of wine and a tube of Wal-Mart brand Pringles....they aren't bad actually and half the price. I just wouldn't recommend salt and vinegar chips along side a Cabernet-Shiraz!
Anyway....at the stroke of midnight I woke Dave from his slumber on the couch to kiss him into the new year.
But hey, I was celebrating....the kids were in bed by 11!!!
So kissable! Check out that wisp of hair....that is it, all his hair. OK, so he has a little more around the back but at the sides he has these funny wisps I am forever tucking behind his ears.
That lotion mess I mentioned in the last post. It smelled so darn good I just couldn't be upset and am now considering using it as a furniture polish. That wood looks and smells so fantastic now!
You would think I never feed them.
I know his legs are scrawny but really, I do!!
"Drrrrrr, coming to get you, run mommy, run!"
After chasing me and Ethan through the house she found some tulle and then announced that she was a lion princess.
After last night we decided that the crib would get set up again. Enough said!
Now for the new years resolutions.
The big one...and I am sure the hardest to keep is that I am resolving to not complain so much. I had told myself that I was going to find the joy in December and I forgot all about it a few days in. So this is going to be tough.
I have been told I whine too much....pass the plate of cheese, yumm. Really though, I am going to try!!
The next resolution is to wean the kids. Crib should help.
And the final one is to declutter. I really admire living minimistcally and I want to be that way....but as you know I live in a house crammed full of stuff. I think I need most of it, but I know it is not true.
It will be a lot of work but I am actually really excited to start this process. I hope to get the tree down tomorrow....really early for us and start making a dent in the stash of stuff.
How about you?
What did you do for the new year?
I hope you all had a great 07 and have an even better 08. Now i am starting to reminisce....that is another post though.
Happy new year!
