The New Year

Well, we haven’t started off the New Year with a bang in the blog department, now have we? So, we are just now getting to posting about how we rang in 2011. It was a much different scene from last year when we were trying to hail a cab from Sandia Casino and being toasted from all the toasting! No, this year was a little more low key. We both have to admit, though, it sure was nice to wake up with no hangover. We can thank Baby X for that one! πŸ˜‰

We met Mom, Dad, and Grandma Merrill at Mom’s favorite restaurant (Trombino’s) for dinner. We hoped getting there early would be less of a wait, but it was still about an hour. So we hung out in the bar for pre-dinner drinks. Margaritas all around (mine was virgin, of course, but I can just imagine what people were thinking seeing this pregnant girl tipping back a marg glass!) and Russ went wild with a Coke. πŸ˜€

After dinner we headed back to Mom and Dad’s and the games began. Dad being a Seinfeld enthusiast appreciated this the most.


It’s Monopoly with a Seinfeld twist! (Woz is a fan of collecting these special editions). Let’s see, who won that night? Hmmmm. Oh yes, Dad did. Can’t you tell by the smile on his face? πŸ˜‰

Look at all that cash!

Woz and Mom were the first to go belly up and have to declare bankruptcy. It’s okay, we still cheered on the boys. And so did Harley and Tori!

Harley loves to keep us company while game playing!

I never win! πŸ˜›

Tori wants to know why everyone is up so late.

The only one not joining the party was Brady. Poor little guy was tuckered out somewhere.

After Dad beat us all in Monopoly, the cards came out and Hand and Foot commenced. Woz was a first timer and didn’t do so bad if she does say so herself. (And she does say so herself!). The winner of the night for that, too, was Dad. Are we seeing a trend here? πŸ˜‰

Close to midnight, we got the bubbly all poured and turned on the TV to see New Kids on the Block and Back Street Boys perform. If any of you know Woz, you know seeing the New Kids on TV again was enough to make her smile. Hellooooo Donnie Wahlberg! hee hee hee

Cheers to the New Year! We have a feeling this is going to be a good one. πŸ˜€
