new years eve

Filed under: carmen, friends, holidays — Jana @ 11:22 am

We headed up to Huntington to spend new years with Dave and Lauren. We played games and ate good food, it was really fun.
Bartering stink beans is surprisingly more fun than I previously imagined, although sitting on the floor to play cards is no easy task for this pregnant body. Everybody else also joined in a game of spoons, but they were playing with it plastic kiddie knives. I decided between the lunging forward and pulling something, and the accidental belly stabbing possibilities, I had probably better sit that one out. It sounded like an accident waiting to happen. It was fun to watch everyone else panic though.img_4581

Most of the other couples that came also had little girls in the toddler range.  Which made for a fun night for Carmen.  But we quickly learned that it is very hard to play cards on the floor with one kid or another plowing through the circle every few minutes.  That, and we learned that you should never have that many little girls in the same house without having enough princess dresses AND matching princess high heels.  We had more than one meltdown about not being able to find Carmen’s “other princess shoe”.

The girls had a lot of fun together.

They also looked very cute when they finally settled under Lauren’s quilt to watch a movie.

Luckily Ashley managed to get these pictures because I am horrible at remembering to bring my camera and take pictures.

We poured some warm martinellis and watched some fireworks through a big tree, it was a really fun night :).
