New Year's Eve

One of our favorite holiday traditions is going to Afton, WY to ring in the New Year with Dallas' siblings.  It's so much fun now that all of the kids are older- it seems like we're all the same age- well, except Jordan.  He still seems like he's 14 ;).  Our favorite moments of the New Year's Celebration were:

  • Dallas spent a billion hours in the shop with his Dad and brothers.  I'm not exactly sure what they did in there, but they kept mentioning how "Grandpa" was hungry, and it involved the question, "This will burn, right?"
  • The girls hit the usual shops- Hasting's Gifts, Swift Creek Trading, and Ditto.  I resisted buying Annie yet another stuffed kitty, and I was proud of myself.
  • Hours and hours spent driving the remote control rock crawlers of Jordan and Beau's over cushions, storage containers, toys, faces... you know, whatever posed a challenge.
  • Manicures and Pedicures by Annie's request- we all hated what we did and ended up taking it off.  All of us except Annie, of course.
  •  Creationary (like Pictionary, only you build things with Lego's), food and forts.

  • Naps (oh, I looooove the naps), and lots of good time spent together.  Happy New Year!!!

What a great idea. I love family get togethers. I am just not very good at them.
