Happy New Year 2010
The year started inauspiciously with us hosting a group of my son's friends having a low key (you're not going to stick around, are you, Mom?) 'teenage' night out/sleep-over-without-sleeping New Year's Eve party 2009.
We missed the midnight transfer since they were raptly attentive to the large screen video game played into the night. Who cares about leaving one year behind when there is Blazing Angels to play, simulating the World War II aircraft and battles?
Still, they were safe, well behaved and ate moderate amounts of snacks in between the air-raids.
Not really a bad start to the year.
Happy children are now zonked out sleeping children as the first day wanes. Their smiling faces and joyful shouts when someone achieved the desired results warmed this parent's heart.
2010 started off well.
