Happy New Year!

We hosted a New Year's Eve party again this year, but this time we celebrated East Coast time. So New Year's was 9pm, not midnight! It was so much fun.
There were 20 kids (!!) nearly all of them were under 5 years of age. They all played dress-up for a long time. The kids (and their moms) all enjoyed making these cool noisemakers. The kids and grown-ups alike made their own banana splits. The guys and some of the kids played Mario Cart and other Wii games. The evening ended at 9pm, when we all ventured onto the deck and watched a short but impressive fireworks display.

Thanks, everybody, for making the party a success! We'll do it again next year!!

Thanks, Glovers, for a great evening! We had previously decided that New Year's Eve just wasn't a holiday for families with young kids... but you found a great compromise. Thanks for all the work you did to make it fun for all of us.

That was a great party! Thanks for letting us come, eat, have fun, and trash your house (I am sure it was a disaster when we all left). Next year we will monitor how much ice cream Blake eats and ease our way into running. No more surprises on your floor – lovely I know!
