They showed up about 7:30 and by then the party was well underway. The kids munched nachos and chips and salsa. My sweetie mixed up a batch of rolls and we cooked a turkey Bossy was given as a Christmas gift that was finally thawed.
The kids watched movies and played games. Princess, Prima Donna, and Fajita headed out for the stake dance and the Dog Walker left for the Institute dance. Princess and Prima Donna evenutally came back home around 11:30 so they could spend the final moments of the year with the family.
We turned on the TV so we could watch the ball drop at Times Square but we were appalled at the showing of the Miley Cyrus video that we had all heard about but carefully avoided. We quickly turned off the TV and even though my little ones were disappointed to miss the ball, we were not about to subject them to that sort of trash. I can't believe the network allowed Dick Clark's family-friendly show to be ruined like that!! Next year we won't even turn it on...

As usual, Baby New Year dropped by and left a small gift in the toe of each person's shoe. The girls got little princess clips and the boys got cars. We were also treated to Pop-Tarts, something we rarely have around here so the kids were very excited!
New Year's Day was even better, but I'll save that post for tomorrow.
How was your celebration?
