On New Year's Eve, we went over to a friend's house to celebrate with the kids.
Drake helped me make chocolate covered pretzels for the occasion.
This was my part of the tray.
This was Drake's.
We had a good time playing with our friends' Wii, as did the kids.
And what kid doesn't like a good excuse to hit something.
And not only be allowed to hit...
...but highly encouraged to do so.
This piñata was very well made.
It took quite a few swings and pokes before they were able to reap the benefits of their hard work, but they enjoyed it nonetheless.
After our countdown with the kids, at about 7:30, we stayed a little longer to play and hang out, then took our kids home and put them to bed. We put in a movie, paused it for the countdown on TV, then finished the movie and went to bed. Happy New Year!
The next slew of pictures are just small glimpses from our everyday life during 2008, to show that not everything that happens in our family has to be a "big event" for it to be remembered.
