Happy New Year!
For the first time EVER all 5 of us stayed up to bring in the new year, probably because we kept the kids busy last night... We played challenge games:
1) Balancing balloons on cups while wiggling.
2) Throwing mini marshmallows into a clock shaped arrangement of cups.
3) Transferring chocolate candies from one paper plate to a clock pattern using only a straw.
4) Using jumbo marshmallows and launching them across the kitchen and catching them in a cup.
Did we have fun? Oh yes! Did they sleep in long enough today? Nope!
We also had a dance party, watched a couple of shows, built legos, and then made brownie bowls at 11pm.
Country Living Magazine had posted a picture on IG a couple of days ago and I decided to try it. Poured the batter into the muffin tins, baked for 30 minutes, pressed down with an additional muffin tin/ice cream scoop to make it deeper, then continued baking for another 7 minutes until really done. Topped with ice cream. It was delish!
My youngest started putting his head down on the couch at 11:55... oh, the irony of making him wake back up! What's on the agenda for today? Filling in my new planner, thinking about cleaning the house and putting away Christmas, and having a 24 hour date with my honey (lunch to lunch). My wonderful parents are taking the boys on a special winter break sleepover. But for now it's all about these pjs.
Hope you had a great night! How did you celebrate?
