impromptu new year's eve party

i get these crazy ideas at the spur of the moment - like "hey! let's have a New Year's Eve Party and invite the neighbor kids over! and whom ever else wants to come!!"
then andy reminds me that our house is a mess and we haven't prepared anything ...
details ... let's party!
i broke out my new 4 tier buffet server and made some cookies, filled it with our christmas goodies and voila!
our 2 (count them, two) guests were from 2 doors down - justin and mckenna
we watched Meet the Robinsons (i really like that movie - great message and cute flick!)
played with toys

abi did juggling tricks and [i didn't get a picture of it - but] we played Uno Attack for about an hour too!
counted down to 10:00 pm with the kids (alicia's GREAT idea - besides they wouldn't have made it to midnight!)
and clinked our glasses!
great time had by all and i think we'll do it again - albeit i'll plan ahead next time ... and maybe invite a few more people!!
Here's to 2008 - let's make it GREAT!

I like your count down to 10pm. When I was young my mom would move the clock ahead, unbeknownst to us, and have a count down and send us to bed.
