Once I knew we didn't have "plans" to celebrate, KRISTIN woke up from her deep sleep and started planning some fun ideas for the kids. THEN, the day got in the way. I took the kids to "Pump It Up". Running myself ragged for all of the supplies I would have needed didn't HAPPEN. I am glad I didn't put myself up against the crowds of people ALL while dragging the three kids with me. Instead, we ordered Frank's, had it delivered, and just created a little party, out of some supplies I already had tucked away, from my party stash.
Ty chose to spend the night out. We truly did miss him, however, had he been home, Darren and I wouldn't have been able to have a little adult time together.
We started off our night with a dance party!!! I don't know what got into Lilah and Jax. I think they were so excited to have Darren and I to ourselves that they were so wild. Jax really let loose as you will see in this video. We upgraded our dance party to a
I hung some tinsel garland on the fireplace and kind of created our own little photo booth. My two cuties had a blast posing, especially Lilah. LOL!
She covered herself from head to toe in sparkled garland. Such a girly girl!!! You can never have enough sparkle in your life!
I am still unaware of how to capture glow sticks with my camera. It's so frustrating.
New Year's Resolutions? NOPE! I feel the same way about New Year's Resolutions as I did last year. The resolutions need to be lifestyle changes. Here were my lifestyle change goals for last year and let's just say, I could EASILY make those lifestyle changes the same for 2015 because I still have MOUNDS of work to do in those categories.
One crazy thing that is happening in 2015 is that our first born son will be turning a decade old. It's so hard to believe!!!!!!
Darren and I did make it to about 12:30 a.m., but I thought this quote was funny and so true:
"Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. MIDDLE age is when you're forced too!"
Well, that's a "wrap". Maybe if I feel inclined, I will enhance the "meat" of this post later this week. Maybe I will come up with new "lifestyle change goals" or maybe I will recap our 2014 year by sharing some of the highlights, but unlike yesterday, our family DOES have plans today. We are hanging out with one of our favorite families... The Shaffers (our Pastor's family): loads of pigging out and football watching to be done. I gotta get baking/cooking and showered.
Oh...GOOGLE did put together an "end of the year" slideshow, using the photosI I have uploaded to Picasa throughout 2014 year. Pretty cool, but there were so many OTHER great photos I would have chosen. It's free, so I can't complain. Enjoy looking at a few of our moments in 2014.
