Happy New Year.....many days late!

We spent New Years Eve at my sisters house in Mission Viejo and we had a great night! My brother-in-laws parents, Lori and Dave Sr., came over too and we had a great time with them. For dinner, my sister made this tasty Chicken Tortilla Soup and later she made a cheese ball and a five layer dip for us to snack the night away with. So Yummy. Games were played with the kids and we just spent time hanging out in the family room. We rang in the New Year early (New York time) with the kids and Kamryn had a great time. This video is testament to that!

After the kids went to bed, the adults stayed up and played Apples to Apples. Thanks for the gift Mom, we love that game! We had some Martinellis and counted down with poor Dick Clark. But kudos to him for keeping the tradition going. I don't think I'm ready for Ryan Seacrest to totally take over Dick Clarks Rockin' New Years Eve. We didn't stay up much longer after that considering musicians these days (in my opinion) aren't that great. But Jason and I ended up staying up half the night anyway with Kamryn . She woke up at 2am and we couldn't get her back to sleep until 5am. So, needless to say, after we got home the next day we all took a long nap. It was definitely a New Years we won't forget. :-)

I love how much fun Kamryn is having with that bell. Nice idea of ringing in the New Year early with the kids. We'll have to remember that one. Glad you had fun!
