Cheers to naked noisemaker blowing

While the rest of the world was celebrating the end of 2007 and the start of a new year with fancy dinners and exciting parties, the six of us had a not-so-fancy dinner at home (regardless of what is served, it can't be a fancy dinner with two-year-old tooting and a double chocolate animal cracker annihilation at the table) and only one of us actually making it to midnight awake.

While there were no champagne corks popping or dancing to anything other than "Old McDonald," we did manage to have our own special brand of entertainment.

Alena and Alivia shared in the celebrating with their own special wine (that would be sparkling grape juice) served in small wine glasses. Having already explained toasting to them on an earlier occasion, they needed no help in raising their glasses, clinking them together and shouting "cheers." They toasted the new year about two dozen times before the bartender cut them off.

Our box of party hats and noisemakers was also a hit with them, as they stripped down naked for bathtime, ran around the living room wearing only "Happy New Year" hats and blowing for all they were worth. As much fun as noisemakers are, they must be even more so when you're naked. Before heading upstairs for bed, we counted down to the end of 2007 and gave new year's kisses.

Apparently all the excitement was too much for Trace and Alysse, as they were pooped out even before the 8 o'clock ringing in of the new year. While Alysse tolerated the party hat for a second or two before removing it from her head, Trace spent his first new year's eve crying for his bed and a fast-forward to 2008.


"Cheers" little midgets, here's hoping we have a blast in 2008!
