New Years Eve was so much fun this year. Once again, I did the same thing as on Christmas Day--didn't take enough pictures. The day started out with J.D. taking the kids sledding at Sleepy Hollow Sports Park. I NEVER thought I would see the day I would pay to go sledding, but when you live in Iowa, hills are limited (as is snow this year). Sleepy Hollow makes their own snow & has a machine that pulls you & your tube back up the hill so you don't have to walk. Alyssa actually decided sledding this style wasn't so bad:) Ashlynn couldn't go because she isn't 4 yet. I think she would love it, so it might have to be a birthday event since her birthday falls on the great day of SATURDAY this year. When the Kiddos arrived home, they were starving. We had sloppy joes & french fries--always a fast/easy/filling meal. In the evening, we went to some friends for a party & had a great time. Great company, wonderful food, tons of kids (that was a favorite part). I love the laughter & excitement of kiddos at parties.
We played a game where you take a present then pass the presents. You can either open one or take one that someone else has already opened. It was really fun. I got the TAKE 5, LOVE them. The kids all loved it & had a great time.
Ashlynn got these nutty bars. She sat to eat them and dipped them in chocolate. A very healthy snack. She only ate 2 bites so it wasn't to bad:)
After we came home the kids were super happy that Alyssa's friends left JUST DANCE 3 at the house. We have JUST DANCE 2, but I guess it's just not nearly as cool. We played it for awhile. It took some convincing to get Britton to take a turn, but once he did he was hooked:)
We ended up playing POWER RANGERS over & over because Ashlynn thought it was AWESOME!!! We played games and had a great night. I am really looking forward to this year & I am optimistic that it will be full of my many new goals reached & happy times:)
As you will clearly see we are not going to win any dancing awards. Ry is just being goofy but hey, it was our first time trying out the Just dance 3 game. My first goal of the year is going to be "GET 3 stars on Just dance 2." (I'll start with a fun goal this year & maybe it will help me get motivated for the hard goals LOL.)
