Does everyone tear-up when the ball drops? I hope I'm not the only one. Then we make our rounds to give everyone kisses and hugs and drink our bubbly... Charlee even had a festive glass with sparkling juice in it (I think aunt Jenny got that picture) It was a weird New Year for me and I'm not sure why. Maybe it was because it was thundering and lightning right at midnight... huge thunders and scary-big lightnings... does that ever happen on January 1? And I thought 2010 was a great year, but i still hold 2009 very close to my heart and maybe 2011 can trump her, but i doubt it... I'll at least be open to the idea. So to say the least I'm kinda in an awkward place with 2011. We had a blast at uncle Gaston and aunt Jennys bringin in the new year. We ate, we drank, we played with munchkins, we ate some more, we laughed at our husbands, we talked about future munchkins, we called family who wasn't there to yell into the phone "Happy New Year, I LOVE YOU." I always love everyone a little bit more on the holidays... silly i know, but sadly true. - Maybe i shouldn't say that?? At least I'm being honest. I get reminded of how short life is and how precious each day is and then look out... im like a blood-sucking leach annoying Gavin with too many hugs and pushing Charlee to the edge begging and bargaining for more kisses. I know what she is thinking (get the hell off me mom), but because she cant say it out loud i act as if its okay that i still do it.
Here are pics from our Pajama Party New Years!!
Oh yeah.... munchkins got M&M's
Gavin was blowing the horn-party favor (don't know what its name is) and she thought he was hilarious
This was at MIDNIGHT.... Charlee is spent (non-stop playing since 7) she will be asleep in about 15 min in her car seat. haha
Aunt Jenny was a huge hit with her Elmo pj's.
Seriously... how sick is it that after eating all night, when we left Gavin BEGGED me to drive by White Castle (okay he didn't beg, I had some too) Really at 1am i needed more grease and carbs? Gavin was trying to be so nice after he was done eating by cleaning it all up and i was looking at pictures from the night on the camera... and he threw my cheese sticks and cheeseburger away in the trash.... i saved the burger but had a moment over the cheese sticks. I almost forgot that it was the new year because i felt the "HULK" was trying to come out. Speaking of the "hulk"... i think it would be awesome to just throw a fit... a real tantrum-like fit. Maybe not at home either, maybe at the store in the middle of the isle when you discover they are out of whole water chestnuts and its the 3rd store you've been to on Christmas Eve Eve. (that happened to me if you couldn't tell and im still irked about it) Would people laugh or be scared when they saw me kicking and screaming on the floor of isle 14? I guess if i was at Walmart it would be par for the course. haha.
