Happy New Year!!!


Our friends, Emil and Kristin (and their boys, n and e) had us over to celebrate the New Year.  Notice I did not say, "to bring in the New Year," because in the grown-up days of working (Patrick needed to get up at 4:30 to get ready for work) and dealing with baby sleep schedules (although Adeline did sleep in a pack-and-play while we were there), partying until midnight is not prudent.  We put the kids down soon after we got there, and then enjoyed a nice adult dinner and adult conversation.  We played the game my parents got us for Christmas (Qwirkle), and then Emil taught us a card game (Sheepshead).  Patrick and I love trump games with strategy, so this was right up our alley.  We had a great time.  Happy New Year everyone!  I would love to hear what you did.....

We were incredibly boring - we put the kids to bed at 8, ate a late (but quiet dinner), drank a few beers (winter lager, of course) and watched the ball drop. We were supposed to go to a friend's house but Lily was running a fever so we declined. You know what, though, it was wonderful. I got to kiss Dave at midnight and that's all that matters! :)

We had my sister and niece over for dinner (A&M steak sandwiches). Later Jonathan and I watched Nanny Diaries and watched the ball drop. It was wild.
