Happy New Year!

This new years was a lot like most other new years for me. I can only think of 2 off the top of my head where I wasn't with family to ring in the new year.

New years is also Talan's birthday! This year he turned 4 and he's still totally into Buzz and most anything Toy Story related.

We started the evening with pizza and a birthday celebration for Talan. We were going to have sundaes but my mom made milkshakes so we decided we didn't need both and just stuck with the chocolate shakes. After the kids went to bed we broke out some games (Guesstures and Imaginiff, and continued playing the wii) I'd forgotten until a few months ago how much I LOVE guesstures, so that was a must for new years. My mom and dad especially have some funny acting mom's guesses were...interesting and totally off the wall most of the time, but we had a great time getting SMOKED by the guys anyway!

About half an hour or so before midnight we all started getting a little tired. I was laying on the couch (in my usual new years spot) while Phillip and Carleton bowled on the wii. A minute or so before 12 we found the channel broadcasting from NY to count down to the new year, toast with our sparkling cider and get our smooches. It was a fun night with family and yummy food!

Happy New Year, I hope 2010 is great for each of you so far!
