Good-bye 2007

The next time I decide to go to the grocery store to pick up a few things on New Years Eve, somebody please talk me out of it! It was beyond busy. And because of the bad weather, there was not a large amount of variety in the produce area. I really, really, really wanted an avocado, only to find there were none. I had planned to make turkey and guacamole wraps for lunch and it just didn't work out.

We had quite a little celebration to ring in the new year. I don't think any of the kids really get it, but it's a fun excuse to party anyway. After they got an early bath, they used Megan's new art supply paint dotters to decorate party hats.
Not as messy as stamps, and produces quick creations, so the paint dotters are definately keepers. I had my doubts, but was pleasantly surprised when just a small amount of ink came out of the tip at a time.

Daniel is frowning because he was in the tub for too long and his fingers are pruney. He gets very upset if his fingers and toes are pruney. He cries, "Fix it, Mom." And I have to kiss every finger to make it better.
Joshua is pretty proud of his hat. He did a great job, and he helped Daniel quite a bit with getting the caps on and off the paint dotters.

Megan did a great job decorating her hat too. She, of course, decided to go with a pink crown. She claims to have decorated it with purple and gold jewels.

After creating party hats, we all had a yummy little buffet of appetizers. The kids were thrilled to be having a "party" for dinner. We tried to explain that we were celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of another, but they really don't get it, yet.
We then played with the Wii for about 30 minutes. Even Daniel plays. Daddy has to help him with most games. Our favorite is to play a family game of tennis. So tonight we played tennis all together and then Keith and Joshua played baseball. Then is was stories and bedtime.

Stay tuned for our accomplishments during 2007, and our goals for 2008....
