New Years Eve.

New Years Eve day started out with a 9:00 AM Risk game between McKay, Gregg, Dallin and Nathan.
pictured above: everyone getting ready, Nate was still in bed.
We start them young in our house on the game Risk.
Truman was pretty bummed when he found out he didn't really get to play.
Puzzles for Truman and Grandpa.
Lauren and Nate taught us how to play Monopoly Deal - supper simple, quick and fun.
 Six hours later Gregg and Dallin were still going at it!  Nate was out after about 1 hour and 45 minutes and I think McKay was shortly after that.  After 7 hours and 20 minutes Dallin finally won.
 Tonight Dallin, Nathan and McKay did a little fireworks show for us to help ring in 2012.  Then it was off to bed for the kids and the grandparents!
 McKay jumping over the fireworks - what a great example to my kids.
 Nathan, Lauren, McKay, Gregg and I stayed up WAY to late playing Settlers.  I don't know what possessed us to play back to back games well into the morning.
We all felt like care free kids again playing some of our favorite games all day and enjoying lots of comfort  foods!  What a great day, seriously.

Tomorrow at church McKay is speaking in sacrament meeting, Nathan is singing, Lauren is playing the piano and I am teaching the combined YW lesson - we are all going to be sleepy!
