NYE Party - Happy New Year!

We had the most lovely NYE.

We decided that we would really enjoy a child-friendly NYE party at our house - eliminating the need to drive anywhere or deal with our own sleepy children away from home.

We invited several families, but only two attended.

This meant there was one little boy who was two years older than Alex, a boy and a girl a few months older than Alex, and a little girl who was only a few months older than Stephen. Six kids in total. It seemed to be a good mix.

The kids had so much fun. Stephen stayed up until 10pm, then he crashed in his bed. Alex turned into a little terror. I'm still not sure what possessed her to pour water on the television, but when that happened, she went straight to bed. It was just before midnight. The other kids fell asleep shortly after midnight. We adults played Settlers of Catan until 2am. A good time was had by all (I think!), but it's definitely not something I could do very often.

The one family stayed over, and we had a lovely breakfast New Year's day. The children all played so hard again, that Stephen fell asleep almost instantly for his nap, and Alex also ended up taking a nap. In the evening we went to my mother's house for her traditional New Year's dinner, although with a bit of a twist. Normally she orders Chinese food for the dinner, but this year, because my Grandmother, Aunt and Uncle were present, she went all out and made homemade meatballs.

Tonight we had my mother and my grandmother over for dinner. I had worked hard to finish an album for my grandmother, and it turned out to be the perfect present. Apparently she had been complaining the last few days, that she didn't have any pictures. Gotta love it when you give the Perfect Gift!

We had a lovely time, and so far, 2010 has started out great! The only crappy thing about 2010 so far, is it feels like I might have the beginnings of a cold. Nothing like going back to work after a vacation, sick.

Here's to hoping that I fight it off!

It really really was :) Minus the TV dying, which thankfully revived once it dried out.

Did I mention the kidlets also got into my pantry, and dipped their little hands into my beads of paraffin wax, liberally sprinkling them all over the basement?

We vacuumed them up before they ground into the carpet thank goodness!
