Well, Hello 2009

Wow. What a party that was! I don't think we've had a more fun New Years Eve in all of our 10 years. It was pretty crazy!

Bill came home from work with flowers and pecan pie for dessert. We hung out for a bit, got the kids to bed and started cooking. We made steak (Bill's had blue cheese), shrimp, mashed potatoes and we were supposed to have spinach, but we just didn't have the stomach room for it. I had a glass of wine or two with dinner and then we relaxed on the couch to digest.

We talked for hours and had a lot of fun. Bill had a few more drinks than I did (even though I had more than I planned on) and we just laughed at him rapping to BIG. Hilarious! We were up until the wee hours of the morning, way past 3am. We noticed that New Years Eve is always one of our favorite holidays because even if it's just the two of us at home, we can still have more fun than we should probably have. It made me think that this is probably why after all of the crap and hard times we've been though in our marriage that we're still together. Not only do we still love each other, we still like to spend time together too.

The next morning was a little rough, but we recovered in shifts - one was up with the kids while the other took a nap. Even though we were exhausted, it was totally worth it. A great way to bring in the new year!

Oh, man I am way "older" than you cause I was in bed by 1:35am and I would have been in bed sooner if we didn't have a long drive home from a friend's house.

Luke and I always have a lot of fun just the two of us too, which can be a bad thing because then we loose our motivation to hang out with other peole!

I am glad to hear that you had a great New Year. What a wonderful way to start the year--having fun with your hubby!

We also like to stay in on New Years--making a great dinner, usually dancing, goofing around--this year, I was so exhausted, I went to bed at 9! So sad. My husband came to bed at 11:30. It made us both feel soooo old and boring.

Happy New Year! I hope it is a fantastic year for your family!
