Our New Year's Celebration

Robbie and I sharing a joke as we settled in for a movie. Mark, having worked some long hours this week, went to bed soon after dinner.
We recently joined Netflix and the boys ordered Fred Clause. It's a cute movie.

By 9:30 pm Alex and Ian were OUT!

A fuzzy picture but that's Robbie showing off his tag and proving he's still awake at 11:30 pm. Thumb and tag are a sure sign of sleepy boy, however, and I noticed a short 15 minutes later that both Robbie and Cam were OUT. So, I welcomed 2009 alone.

Happy New Year's boys! I hope 2009 is good to you. I tried to grab some pictures of the fireworks from the Strip (which I couldn't see because they changed where the fireworks were being lit from casino roof-tops to parking garage-tops). Once back inside, I herded the boys up the stairs to bed. I would have taken a picture, I think it would have been so stinkin' cute to see 4 sleepy boys crawling up the stairs, except that Ian required some hand holding to get it done. Oh well, maybe next year.

We caught the Rose Parade this morning before Mark took over the TV for outdoor hockey which will be followed by more bowl games than I can shake a stick at. That's's time for most of the Christmas decorations to come down.

Great New Year shots. I caught the Rose Parade too (am still a CA girl by heart). Unfortunately 1 station always cuts it off at 9:30 (God forbid that a football game might start late) so then I switched to the only other station that was carrying it. We too have the ice hockey game on - unfortunately Uncle Brian woke up sick to his stomach this morning - great way to start the new year. It's pouring rain & very windy, but better than being snowed in again. Happy New Year to our Nevada family. Miss you.
