Ha! We did get barbecue (and you should see Sophie eat corn on the cob), Paul's mom had given us some sparkling cider so I poured everyone a glass at midnight (aka 8:30pm). I taught the kids how to say "cheers", but wasn't fast enough to catch it on the camera. Sophie's first taste of the carbonation was hilarious, but I guess she decided the bubbles were worth it because I had to pry the cup out of her hand later.
Then we played a game. This might become our family tradition for New Year's Eve...Family Game Night.
After we put the kids to bed (which is an ordeal right now), Paul and I settled on the couch to watch a movie (in the hopes that it would help us stay awake until the New Year). We picked the wrong movie (The American, slow-paced and random, unconnected scenes). We got about 40 minutes into it and I was falling asleep, so we went to bed.
Happy New Year to All! I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for the Walker family of four!
