Two of Reilly's friends came over for New Years Eve - Mason and Marek. The kids had a dinner consisting of Mac-n-Cheese and Chicken Fingers paired with Sparkling Grape Juice - followed by a prompt ball drop at 7:23. The ball drop was a few fireworks and the kids learning to say "Happy New Year!" They weren't so sure about the fireworks, here they are looking on from a distance with a forced picture by the parents.
We attempted to get the kids down at 8:00 in the playroom while the adults enjoyed a nice prime rib dinner in the dining room - hah. The kids stayed up the entire time playing - but they did stay in the room! Finally around 10:30, we broke them up. Reilly went to sleep in our bed....we found here like this around midnight. She had sunken into our pillows and the only thing showing was her cute little face!
