I decided to spend New Year's Eve with the T's this year as part of my plan to spend as much time with them as I can before Mia comes home. Tatum bailed on us in lieu of spending the night with her BFF. She suggested we have a "boys night" since she'd just spent the night a couple weeks ago. Truth of the matter is... BFF's family was going skating and she thought that sounded more fun. LOL! Tess didn't stay either. But just cuz she's 2 and couldn't hang until midnight. She left with her mom and dad for Thai take out and a quiet evening being the center of attention. I made sure to send her home with party favors. I mean every girl has to have a Happy New Year tiara, right? I love her furrowed brow of concentration trying to blow this thing.A shot of me, Teagan, Travis and Griffey taken by Tanner. We had a chill evening in our pj's just chowing on pizza and watching movies until the ball dropped.
Teagan and Travis were especially fascinated by the whole Times Square party and the ball drop. I had to pull out the laptop to look up the answers to their questions about the ball...how big is it, what's it made of, what do they do with it after it comes down, etc. We looked at a street map of Manhattan so they could see how far the Empire State Building was from the Square. And they wanted to know how tall the ESB was. What did we ever do without G00gle?
Tanner seems to give the stink eye often these days when it comes to picture taking. It's hard to get a decent shot of him.They all thought it was pretty cool to toast the new year at midnight. Teagan especially got a kick out of clinking the fancy glasses. It was cute. He made me rewind the ball drop so he could count it down again and do the glass clinking a second time. 5 year olds are fun.
Griffey, however, was over all the fun and excitement and just wanted to go to bed.
It was a great night and a fun way to ring in the new year. And it's a memory the boys will have forever. Although it's a few days late now, Happy New Year! I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store. I have a feeling it's gonna be the best year of my life!!! :)
