Happy New Year!!
I think I am REALLY happy to say good bye to 2008, with hopes of a better 2009.
We had a fun party last night with a couple of neighbors over. Who wants to drive with a bunch of drunk maniacs on the road?
The boys played MarioKart almost all night. The girls messed around in Ainsley's room. We had LOTS of good food. See the seance-loing picture? That's actually the kids playing dreidle with skittles. A definite hit, Mona! Maybe next year we should have a hannuka party?
We adults played lots of games, including What were you Thinking, MadGab and Cranium. We also played Settlers of Catan which inspired us to have a monthly game night. It's been so long! We used to play games all the time before we had kids!
And New Years came at New York time. Then again at midnight. Ainsley did not want anything to do with the noise makers. She was all about her ear-piercing shrieks. I can still feel the trembling on my ear drums. The neighbors must have imagined someone was being tortured.
Anyway, we had a great time!
Now on to the New Year dieting. I think if I document that, I will feel more motivated (or embarassed!) I will post on Saturday my progress for the week (without the specific starting point.) Give me some encouragement, okay?
