Happy Blogaversary

Happy Blogging Anniversary to me! It's hard to believe that I've been blogging for 3 years now, but I checked and my first posts were 1/1/06. A is now the same age that M was then, but both kids did a much better job of staying up to watch the new year in. Back in 2006, they both conked out before 11. We were probably not playing exciting games back then, however.

This year, though, they were both going strong at midnight, wanting to stay up and play on the computer more. Nope. They were in bed by 12:15 and probably asleep soon after. M even slept in til after 9 this morning - unheard of around here.

For dinner we had a picnic of appetizers in the living room in front of the fireplace. Menu included pot stickers, cheese quesadillas, pizza rolls, carrot and celery sticks.

Then we listened to Capitol Steps - always a treat. After that it was time to break out the games. First up was the new game the kids got from Uncle D and Aunt K - Galaxy Trucker. It was lots of fun and we got to see some new twists in the game we hadn't seen the first time we played - like M and D each ran out of humans on their ship at one point (in different rounds) and had to sit out that round.

After Galaxy Trucker, we played a rousing game of Blokus. More fun and that took us reasonably close to midnight. We watched the ball drop and then on to bed.
