Happy New Year!
I hope your new year is starting out right. Last night we had another family over and we all ate pizza, bowled with the Wii, watched a movie and generally enjoyed ourselves. Both men dozed off during the movie, and when it was over, my friend's husband yawned and asked, "What time is it? Must be about 10:00, right?"
I picked up my phone and checked the time. It was 8:48. That was our first clue that we might have trouble staying up until midnight. : ) Fortunately, the neighbors decided to help us out. They set off fireworks in the street in front of our house in the middle of the subdivision. It was a nice show, but I couldn't enjoy it because I kept worrying about them setting the neighborhood on fire. Plus, they were obviously drunk. When the neighbors finally finished the show, we went back inside and ate some more, played some more and watched the new year come in.
Our first day of the new year has been great so far. All of us slept until 10:00. That's a record for the boys. We've had a tradition for a long time that we do our Christmas stockings on New Year's Day. So the boys dug some goodies out of their stockings and then we had our traditional holiday breakfast of cinnamon rolls.
I've got to get downstairs and get some dinner ready to go with the Honeybaked ham, but I wanted to wish all my blogging buddies a very happy new year. Hope 2010 beats 2009 hands down!
