Happy New Years!!

Back to life....back to REALITY!! The theme song of the day, huh? Well BOO!

We had a great NYE!  Shane and I decided last year that until the kids are old enough to watch themselves, we would be spending NYE with them.  We do not like the idea of asking their grandparents to watch them since they want to celebrate as well.  It's not like we are going out and partying like fools and Lord knows we do NOT want to deal with it the next day when the kiddos wake up demanding breakfast :).  So, last year we started it and we continued this year to spend it with all five of us.  It helps that my best friend has three kids too that wants to do the same and my family will celebrate with us :). 

So you will have to go Tara's blog for all the awesome details and even more pictures, but it was a great night!! We had two hotel suites, one for the kids and one for the adults.  Tara decorated each all up :).  We met up there, all dressed up for appetizers and pictures.  Then we went out to eat all together. After dinner, we headed back to the hotel, changed into matching pjs and rang in the new year!  We toasted with champagne, the kids toasted sparkling cider, and laughed so much! It was so comfy and perfect.  We were home by 12:30 :)...here are many pics!! Tara got a ton of cute ones of the kids...I know they are going to love seeing these one day :)))

Of course, thanks to Tara, Ruby had a NYE dress too, but she had to stay back and not attend the festivities...but we did get a picture of her and with her :)

Here we were at midnight!! Happy New Year from the Browns!!!
