We tried something new this year, and stayed home for New Years Eve. Usually Lewis and I go out. In years past we have gone downtown for the night, gone to dinner and movie with friends or family, but this year we were so tired from being gone all week to California that we decided to stay home for the night with the kids. We got a babysitter for the afternoon so we could go to the movies. We went to see a matinee of The Day the Earth Stood Still. It was very "green". It was the third movie that we have seen this fall/winter that is all about being environmentally friendly.
When we got back from the movie we played Monopoly with the kids. Then they ate a late dinner/snack of cereal (that is when Abigail had regular milk and vomited for the last time; another post on this later). Abi fell right to sleep, as did Lewis (boo!). Jason and Haley had a slumber party in the living room until midnight and Adam watch television in the basement. I managed to reread the 3rd book in the Twilight series and went to bed afterward. All in all a very quiet and nice way to start the year.
