Matt and I haven't really been big New Year's Eve goers. In fact, this year Matt said to me, "I stayed up with Kate last year, so I guess it's your turn this year." The year before that, Wes and I were the only ones to make it. So this year we planned with a purpose. :)
We made up a bunch of games, blew and taped up balloons so that we could pop one as each hour went by, and watched a movie.
We didn't expect Joshua to make it until midnight, so it wasn't surprising when he fell asleep at 9:30. I think Matt made it until 10:30. But Wes, Kate and Sophie were going strong until about 11:30. That last hour was hard. I was tired, and by that point didn't care if I/we rang in the new year. But we made it! We bought those little blow horn things and some firecracker snaps, and made a tiny ruckus in our neighborhood. It ended up being really fun.
Some of our family goals for this year:
*Kindness - work on it Ü
*Have a service-oriented FHE once per month.
*Train to run in the Lamb Scram (Wes & Kate: 1-mile run at Lamb Days in F.G., UT)
*Eat more healthy.
*Complete Personal Progress (me), Bear (Wes), Faith in God (Kate).
