I made some tomato bacon bites, we had some cheese and crackers, and other munchies to graze on through dinner and the evening. Ace was allowed to stay up until New York New Years. To pass the time we played a half a game of Candy Land before Ace had a anti-establishment meltdown and earned himself a timeout. We moved away from structured playing, I broke out the party hats and the noise makers, put on a movie and later on he did one of his floor puzzles all by himself (very proud!) partially with an audience. :)
Mae was a happy and wide awake girl. She rang in EST New Years, CST, and MST... She was a busy girl, playing peekaboo with my scarf, walking around the house, playing horsey with her dad, and in general just was WIDE awake and having fun. She finally made it to sleep about 20 minutes away from the new year PST.
After Mae went to sleep, the adults headed over to the dining table for a game of Dutch Blitz, which after remembering how to play we had to pause mid-second round to toast in the new year and 5 minutes later Mae was awake again! We called it a night on the game - and LH headed to bed. Mo and I headed downstairs to enjoy a little more tv and I got Mae asleep on me. We called it a night and headed to bed around 2:30am. It was an excellent although tame NYE!
Can't wait to see what 2012 brings us! Happy New Year, everyone!!
