new year's eve - tuesday
kobe got to go to the vet today. he was pretty excited (to ride in the car and see new people). mixter kept me company while kobe was getting his vaccinations. while we waited for the doctor to come in, kobe was checking everything out in the room. he finally laid down and relaxed. a little too much though, he passed gas. and of course, the doctor walked in just after that. he weighed in at 98 pounds today. the doctor said he should weigh in between 90-95 pounds, so we need to cut back a little on his food.
we dropped kobe off at home and went back out for our annual NYE day donuts. the last time we were at town square, we saw a donut place. so i searched online and it said it was open. but, of course, after we drove out there, parked and walked over to it, we discovered it was not open. so we settled on ol' winchells and their sparse selection. we went next door to starbucks for a peppermint mocha and 3 hot chocolates. after "brunch" i cleaned the bathroom and then cleaned out most of my desk drawers. and at 3:30, i took kenzie to her volleyball practice. at 5:00 i got dinner all ready, but darric didn't get home from work until after 6:30 so we just waited to eat until i picked kenzie up at 7:00. we had a taco salad/nacho night (i had both with some yummy trader joe's pineapple salsa) the kids and i played a few rounds of our new scattegories game. and then we played madi's new clue game twice. then we just watched some of the local NYE broadcasts for about an hour. with about a half hour left. max was out. i did wake him up just before midnight but i'm not sure he knew what was going on. the strip had firework shows going off at several different properties and the show lasted 8 minutes. i went to bed after about 2 minutes and i'm pretty sure we could hear the entire thing from our house including the finale at 12:08. it sounded spectacular.
we tried for a group shot using the timer on the camera. madi was the button pusher and on her way back the last time, kobe jumped on her back.
