So Happy New Year everyone! 2009! WOW! We had a fun night with our kids last night. We took them to see the movie "The Tale of Despereaux". Both Aubree and Kaden have read the book and wanted to see the movie. It was fun, except when Brennen spilled his drink, and then wanted to drink everyone else's.
When we got home my kids were determined to stay up til midnight. In the past, we have celebrated "East Coast New Year" meaning we watch the ball drop on cable and tell them it's midnite. But now my older kids can tell time, so it doesn't work anymore. Brennen went to bed when we got home at 9:30. He is two after all. Kaden made it until about 10:15, and we lost Tyson about 5 minutes later. (The only reason Tyson wanted to stay up is to drink 'special juice', sparkling cider.) Aubree was still going strong, though. About 11:30 she started to get tired, but then the Jonas Brothers came on TV, and that revitalized her.
We woke the boys up about 5 minutes til midnight. After we counted down to the new year and blew our horns and drank our special juice, Kaden said, "That's it? Happy New Year? I'm going to bed." That pretty much sums it up.
Happy New Year! Have a Great 2009.
