Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! We spent NYE with our very good friends down the street. Sadly, we left before midnight and were in bed by the time the fireworks started. Eight year old Gracie said our party was 'sucky.' I told her when she's 20, she can go out and party if she wants to, but for now she has to hang with us lame-o older people. I'll defend our lameness by pointing out that I was sick all weekend and now Kevin has it, and Micah is also getting over it, so we have a good excuse! We did stay up long enough for a yummy dinner of crab legs, and some good wine! Can't beat that!

Here are some pictures from our sucky party:

Mr. Grumpy wants Mr. Happy's hat (you might not be able to see it, but all three little boys have on shirts that say Mr. Grumpy, Mr. Happy & Mr. Funny. Yes, we planned this :)

We tried to get a picture of all three Misters, but Mr. Grumpy wasn't having it.

Again, Mr. Grumpy is missing from the shot. (He's living up to his name)

Happy Mama with Mr. Happy (who is not living up to his name in this one!)

Mr. Funny being... Funny!

This we did not plan - but look at these cuties in their matching jammies!

Micah is learning the fine art of binky theft. Look how excited he is that he got Chuck's binky!

And now he's trying to give it back. Cute boys!

So, we had a fun night. We put the little ones in bed around 8 and had a yummy dinner, and then made it until about 10:30, came home and got in bed. I was awake for the fireworks on our street though. I still can't believe Mic slept through it!

I hope that 2008 brings little ones home to all who are waiting and that everyone has a wonderful year! Merry New Year!


  1. Happy New Year! The little "Misters" are so cute!

  2. Happy New Year! I've been ill too, over it now, but it really did kick me down for a couple of days!

  3. I know you know it- but that little one of yours is SO DARN CUTE!!! Great pictures of the "sucky" party- tell Gracie that it looks pretty darn nice from this direction... hats and everything! Woo-hoo!

  4. Happy New Year! Those t-shirts are adorable.

  5. I have to say he is sooo darn cute!!! I love comming and reading about how he is doing!! Congrats to all of you!!

  6. You must just laugh all the time at his facial expressions! They totally crack me up. What a sweetie pie. We NEVER make it up till midnight on New Years. This year was our first time in all of married life! Still paying for it today;)

  7. Mr. Micah is as cute as ever!! Happy New Year!!

  8. You hear it all the time, but I have to add my voice to the choir: that Micah of yours has the best expressions. What a cutie. And I totally agree about the no-characters issue, though it's so hard to avoid it with sleepers.

  9. Happy New Year to you, too! Praying this is going to be a wonderful year of discovery with your little guy!
