HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2009

As we do most years we spent New Years Eve with just us! My parents headed to Arizona so it was Jimmy and I and the kids! Per Jimmy's tradition we bought lots of junk food and just watched movies and waited for midnight! None of the kids were gonna make it so we put James to bed and then the rest of us had a little celebration complete with a toast and horns and then the girls went up to bed. Lexi did request we wake her for the fireworks, but they were so lame this year that she has no memory of the event! Vegas decided to do the fireworks from ground level so unless you were standing next to them you couldn't see them! We had fun nonetheless and here we are January 1, 2009!! Here's hoping the New Year will bring us good things and for all of you as well!

That sounds just like our new year's eve party..junk food and movies!!! I loved the pics; your boy looks just like Jimmy in them and your girls are all you.
I was LOL at your comment about not losing the weight(not that you have ANY that I can see to lose) in just 3 days like high school. It's SOOO true! Back in the day it was like fruit and veggies for a week and poof..I was thin again! Getting old SUCKS!!! :-)
Great post! Happy New Year!!

Dave and I stayed up until 11:30 and then went to sleep. I was too tired and I thought a half hour more was not going to make a big difference. I don't think my kids even know what New Years is. Maybe next year we'll let them party.

Sounds exactly like our New Years!!! I love just staying home and spending time with people I really care about instead of a bunch of strangers. Your family is adorable!

John and Marissa said...

Happy New Year to you too! I love the new lay-out!
Of course, John had to work, so it was me and Sarah hangin' out at Mom & Dad's. I met John for breakfast @ 5:00am. Too early!
PS - I like the junk food tradition!

Hi Marylin!!! Do you remember me?!? Your old pal Shauni Boren?!? I was at my parents' for Christmas and your mom had sent yours and Alyssa's blog addresses to my mom, so we checked them out. It's so fun to look at your blog and see what's going on in your life now. I can't even remember how long it's been since I've seen you! You are so beautiful and have a beautiful family. Our blog is private, but if you want to send me your email address I can send you an invite and you can see what I'm up to these days! Miss you! shaunihawkins@msn.com

Girl, it took me like 7 months to paint that horse. Well...to get around to painting that horse. What kind of design would you have in mind? We could work on it together. I'd be glad to do that! I have no idea where my MIL found the unfinished horse though. I'll look around.
