Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and safe time last night, as I know we did here in the Tiemann House. I'm not much of a fan of resolutions, because I think, if you feel there is something you need to change, you should just do it, instead of doing it at the beginning of the year and calling it a resolution. With that said, my friend Sandra posted this picture and it's what I intend to do as well.
Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate family and myself all year long.
Last night, we made snacky foods, like rotel cheese dip, veggies and dip, and hot chocolate brownies. We bought New Year's Eve party kits from the store that had hats, tiaras, necklaces, and horns. We also bought those cracker things that you pull open, they make a pop, and inside is a small toy, like a whistle or a top and then of course we bought bunches of those fun poppers that you take outside and pull the string and confetti flies everywhere. I also made sure we had champagne (I didn't like this one too much as it was too incredibly dry) and the kids had sparkling cider.
Shawn's sister Kelly and her boyfriend Michael came over and we watched Game of Thrones together. We started that together on Saturday and are almost done with the first season. Shawn and I have already seen the first two seasons but the kids and I got him the blu ray of the first season for his birthday so we have been watching it as a group. I hear that after we finish it, while we wait for season two to come out, we'll be watching Downton Abbey since Kelly hasn't seen any of it, and Shawn and I missed most of the second season. Michael seems really excited for us to watch it, which is awesome. I've had a lot of fun with Kelly and Michael.
It's always chaos in our house...
After a couple of group photos, they paraded through the house, dancing and tooting horns right and left.
I have the goofiest family, and I love it!
Happy New Year everyone! Enjoy your day... and your year.
