Here are a few pics of our New Year's Eve / Day celebrations (such as they were).
Robert's brother and his wife are in Alaska on a mission trip, so we invited their three kids over to enjoy fireworks with us.
That was it for our New Year's Eve party. We put the kids in bed by nine. And I got to experience the ultimate event: going to Wal Mart by myself... with almost no one there!
Then I came home and we vegged on the couch long enough to see the ball drop. Don't you wish you were so cool??
Then today was my day to help with the kids, so we made pizza for lunch and then did some New Year's Day learnin' and fun. We talked about the calendar starting over and looked at our 2007 calendar. We closed it after December and opened a new one. (I bought Jacob his own calendar to keep on the wall this year.) This seemed to help the kids understand it was a new something. We also did a printable book from enchantedlearning.com and colored a bit.
P.S. I know I have some issues with my night pictures. It's not the camera's fault... It's quite difficult to take a picture with a heavy camera at night while holding a toddler clinging with a death grip!
