Happy 2009! We had a great New Years Eve with the Walker family. Bret, Jayme, Molly, and Morgan came to our house for a fun filled evening and a sleepover.
We started off with a yummy dinner of pork tenderloin, garlic cheese grits, green beans and Sister Shubert rolls. Topped it off with some gooey cookie and ice cream. Molly and Emma played the Disney Princess game on the Wii for a long time while the grown ups looked through the Conversation Starters that the Walker's got for Christmas. Our longest conversation was based upon the question, "What has been your scariest moment?" Bret won the prize for the most scary moments, 2 including bears. :)
We piled the girls in the playroom to start a movie, but they were much more interested in playing than watching a movie. We finally turned off the lights for them around 10. Brooklyn slept in her bed, but Molly and Emma slept in their sleeping bags in the playroom. I think they finally went to sleep around 11. They chatted in there for about an hour before going to bed. It was cute!
The adults rang in the New Year by playing the Wii, watching Time Square, drinking champagne punch and chatting.
Jayme and Bret slept in our room with Morgan, I slept in Emma's bed with B, and John slept on our guest bed in the office. Everyone slept really well.
We woke up and ate Jayme's yummy Creme Brulee French Toast, played a little more and then they headed home. We had plans to let the girls paint canvas', but we never got to it. I have promised Emma that we will do it sometime today.
We called our first annual New Years Eve Slumber Party a success. It was good, family fun! I feel very blessed to have good friends that have 2 little girls right around our girls ages and that they play so well together. It is a blessing.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2009 brings good things to all. And again, hopefully I will post Christmas pictures soon.
