Yes, I know that this post is a week late. But, in my defense I have had a lot going on with Ewan's birthday right after New Year's!
Alan and I held a kid-friendly chili dinner at our house with the intention to play games and just hang out. Not very many people came, mainly because they had other plans already unfortunately. But, we did have fun with those who did :-) While we didn't wind up playing games, the kids had a blast!
However, no one made it to midnight but me! My brother-in-law and sister-in-law left around 10 when my youngest nephew desperately needed to go to bed and then our friends left just after 11, right after the ball dropped in Times Square. Yes, at 11. We're in Central Time so it's an hour early for us, which having lived in Eastern time for most of my life, is just weird! Alan fell asleep on the couch with Cecily and I was up watching Downton Abbey when it was midnight here. I can't decide if we're just old or if we just throw really lame parties... :-)
Regardless, Happy New Year, again!
