New Year's Eve Fun

We had a blast at my parents house for New Year's Eve. We had a food, game and Wii fest. We had two Wii's going and lots of games and fun. We had lots of good party food. If you can believe it there were even Christmas Cookies for everyone. My mom must have hidden them way in the back of the freezer for there to be any left.


Of course we had to play a little Leggo Rock Band and test out the new tunes. Landon love to play the drums.

Landon was getting to have some special "juice" for New Years. He discovered that he LOVES pop!
We even got in a little game playing. We played turbo Skipbo (everyone playing at once), Golf (super fun card game), and the funnest game of The Game of Things. This game was a hoot. You have topics that you write answer too(such as What do not like about family gatherings), then you put the things you wrote in a pile and you have to guess who said what. It was hilarious. I can't wait to play it again.

We decided to have a Wii fest, because so many of us got new games this year. This is my Brother-in-law, Jason, playing Wii resort. They were showing their bow hunting skills. I believe I even heard some grunting going on!

We finished the night off watching the ball drop in Times Square and plotting all kinds of mean things to do to my sister who wimped out on us at 10:30. All in all it was a fun night.
The best part came the next day when we all stayed in our pj's until 1:00. I have not had a lazy day like that in a very, very long time!

Sounds so much fun. I love board games. When are you coming to Utah for a visit?? You can stay with us in our vast home that is about 2500 sq ft too big. Anytime. Do you even have anyone left in the Provo area to visit??

Oh goodness, I don't think the Game of Things would be the same without Jason playing. The whole night went really well. You were smart to do a 9 p.m. kids ringing in the new year.
The lounging in jammies the next morning was great too. In fact I did a repeat on Saturday morning.

Sounds like a good way to ring in the new year. We took it easy, went out to dinner (chinese~tradition), came home, played PS3 racing (that gets competitive!)
Jake loves the Wii Big Hunter game. We have no Christmas cookies left. :O(
