Extreme Makeover 2008 and Holiday Rewind

So, I did it! I jumped on the bandwagon and got a blog makeover. I wanted to keep my same old blog but then I started looking at everyone else's pretty new blog and I got SO jealous. So the fantastic Nikki (www.madebynikki.blogspot.com) gave my blog an extreme makeover. Do you like it? My kids sure do.

Thought I would play catch up from the holidays and include some pictures. We had a great Christmas and NYE. Christmas was at home and pretty low key. It was so fun watching Dani open presents this year. SHe really got it and enjoyed unwrapping the paper and finding a surprise in each package. NYE we did a progressive party with some of our close friends/neighbors. We are great friends with several other families on our block. We started at one end of the street and worked our way house to house for different food and drinks. With kids in tow we made it all the way until 12:30AM and it was a blast. I told Steve I had more fun this year then any of the years we went out and partied at clubs/bars. The kids had a blast (watching your parents get drunk and dance around is probably pretty entertaining). The night ended with my daughter dancing on the coffee table (video below) as the ball dropped on TV. We got her in bed at 12:30AM and...NY Day? Don't even ask..my head throbbed and my daughter whined. WE made it through though and it was so worth it. The only bummer was that Tyler was not here to celebrate with us. HE usually spends NYE with his Mom. He was here for Christmas though and that to us is more important.

Here are some pics to recap the last month. ENJOY!

This is what happens what a small person tries to spy on parents in the living room watching TV. Small person fell asleep during covert operation!

Sunol Canyon Train of Lights. This was more fun in theory than in reality. The kids had a good time so that's the point I guess. Note to Sunol Canyon Train of Lights...When you have an old train and a lot of switchbacks that involve lurching. DON't FREAKIN SERVE PIPING HOT COCOA TO KIDS!!!! Now let your imaginations run wild with the thought of burning hot chocolate all over our pants and seat ;-)

Steve hit the motherload this Christmas and won't be getting any visits from Santa for a few years! Yep, a new TV and stand. Check out our cat. Chili loves the LCD and HDTV picture I guess. She watched it for hours that first night. It was pretty hilarious! Our cat is nuts and doesn't make too many appearances on my blog. She is why they call cats "Scaredy cats"

We went on the Hornblower SF Bay Cruise with our close friends Laurie and August. It was fun but the food sucked. For that much money you should be getting a decent meal.

NYE Pooped out with Daddy at the end of the night


OK, here is the video on NYE. Please ignore my disgusting shreaky voice jabbering over the video. ALso, I apologize in advance for Kanye's use of the F word. I didn't realize how many times he pops that off in this song. Good thing none of the kids noticed LOL

What a fun family! We're not as much fun. We didn't even make it until 11:00. We'll try harder next year.
