Happy New Year

We had he best NYE this year. We were able to spend it with some of our best friends and our kids and I would not have had it any other way. Us, The Stricklands, and The Bentleys decided to get together with the kids and have a sleepover at The Stricklands. Most of our other friends were out of town, had other plans, or had babysitters. Mindy cooked a delicious pot of spaghetti for dinner, we put the kids to bed, and just hung out playing board games and Wii(I will go into detail later). Look how precious Mary Molloy, Jack, and Addison were eating dinner at the kids table. This was Jack's second meal of the night in which he had 2 helpings. I am thinking he is having a growth spurt.

This is Jack after his 2 helpings of spaghetti. He loved Aunt Mindy's cooking. You can't really notice but the girls had been done and were up playing. Jack kept eating.
After the kids went to bed the adults played a board game and then broke out the Wii. Doug(Papa) bought a Wii for Mom and kids for Christmas to have at the camp to play. He had it shipped to our house since that is where they were for Christmas, but it didn't make it in time. Yea! It was at our front door Wednesday when we got back from the lake and Papa was very nice and told us to try it out. I don't know if this was a good mood or not. Papa is either going to be buyin another one or Brandon is going to have to buy us one because we are addicted!!

The boys bowled most of the night and were nice enough to give Mindy and I a try at tennis. This is Casey being very serious about the game...

... Brandon is very serious. Look at this pose...

...and Chris is really serious. Thanks Papa for making our New Years Eve even more exciting!
I want to wish everyone the best in 2009!

Wii is amazing! I want one so badly. Tell Brandon there is a duck hunting game that is great. Might get him to buy one faster :-)
