Happy New Year -- Make Believe Midnight!

Me -- make it to midnight??? I can see Mr. Tennis chuckling at the idea! But, yes, I can -- if it's a "Make Believe Midnight" put on by our local Children's Museum! We were there on New Year's Eve along with 700 of our closest friends. On went the party hats and we bid a fond farewell to Father Time with a countdown to 2010 and ball drop at 8 PM (the make believe midnight) to welcome Baby New Year!

Maddy visited the Vet's office to check out the xrays on her little froggie. Happy to report, he seems fine!

One of Maddy's best friends came along this year. The girls blew those horns nonstop! We found blog and "real life" friend Jodee and her family and counted down with them!
We also cast resolutions into the "Well of Good Intentions." That sounds better than "resolutions", doesn't it! Hats and horns and glowing necklaces along with friends made for a lot of fun!

So long 2009 -- welcome 2010!

Thanks so much for joining us for another fun New Year's Eve at the Children's Museum. After two consecutive years, can we call it a tradition?! We had a great time and look forward to spending more time with you and sweet M in 2010!

How fun! A New Year's party at the Children's Museum sounds like a blast! Our boys made it to the real midnight for the 2nd year in a row!

Happy 2010!

Happy New Year to you! My two oldest girls stayed up until 1:45 a.m. on New Year's Eve. When Keith and I left for the evening they asked if they could stay up until midnight and we said sure, but we never thought they would make it. Boy, did they prove us wrong.

What a great idea...for kids and parents alike, because I know I can't stay up till midnight either! Looked a perfect way to ring in the new year/decade. Happy New Year's to you and your family!
