This is how we spent our New Years Eve night. No big parties for us. No drinking and dancing on tables with lampshades on our heads.
Nope, we had a fun night in. We played board games and took turns holding the baby. Parker even played his very first board game with us. One called Minotaurus which is actually a LEGO board game.
Not only did he play it, but he won it. Fair and square. We didn't LET him win.
After we played several board games we stopped for supper. Then the video games were brought out.
In this particular picture my husband was playing Angry Birds Star Wars on the Wii while Parker played with his various Star Wars toys, and my Mother in Law was feeding Spencer. (Other than stopped to snap the picture I was washing dishes at that point.)
Later we all played a Mario Party game together. Even Parker.
All in all it was a very settled, very familiy centered night.
Earlier that day I had been lamenting to my husband that I wish we could go out and do something. And by the time midnight rolled around (after the game playing was over, the kids were in bed and my MIL had gone home) I was bored to tears. But while we were all together it was a lot of fun, and a decent way to ring in a new year.
