(ok... i'm off on my numbers. today should be 365/365. guess i need to go figure out where i went wrong.)
i got up around 7-ish and got ready. then went and picked up a dozen winchell's donuts for new year's eve day donuts. (this is the third year for this tradition, i believe)
later, me, max and madi went to costco to pick up some prints. a new valentine's one for the 1825 blog. was supposed to head over to chuck e cheese to meet up with jodie, but darric remembered his golf clubs were in the back of my car still. so i quickly ran those home to him and headed back to chuck e cheese, where i still ended up waiting for our other guests to get there. jodie, janie and their kiddos. we ordered pizza. the kids played until all of their tokens were gone. we have the 2 tokens at a time rule, so we get to see them a lot while we're there. they cashed in their tickets and each got a little something and we headed out.
kenzie was at home with another earache. she finished all of her antibiotics and was feeling fine and last night it started bugging her again. she kept texting me asking when we were coming home. and letting me know that she wanted a smoothie. we stopped for gas and then grabbed starbuck's drinks instead. she was happy with a strawberries and cream frappuccino.
we just hung out at home and cleaned up a little while we waited for darric to return from golfing. it was pretty chilly out today, but he said it wasn't too bad on the golf course. he didn't golf a whole lot. i think three holes and he was done. ;)
dave, christi and tyler came over at 7:00. i made some more of the cheese dip and had a couple other dips too. kenzie came and laid on the couch while the other kids (max, madi, tyler, dave and darric) started a nerf gun fight. me and christi ended up joining them until we were all a little worn out. we played a game of loaded questions, one round of scribblish and apples to apples. and then we had about 20 minutes to sit and watch the news until it was midnight. darric checked the weather and it was actually colder here than it was in new york. glad i was inside.
kenzie and madi both made it til midnight. max had fallen asleep around 9:30. he was bummed the next morning that he didn't get to do any poppers. (that would be darric's fault since he thought it was funny to do all of them... in my ear)
