Tonight, Savannah went to my niece's house for a sleepover (God bless my sister who I'm sure will hear squeals & giggling and midnight). Samuel & Sarah were determined to stay up til midnight, too....but alas, at 10:25, I went in to check on them & well... I don't think they made it.
I can't blame them for being tired, though. They never had any down time today. We all worked hard all day long re-arranging furniture & cleaning. The biggest change was in the living room. I wish I had a picture to show you what it looked like before...but since I don't, you'll just have to take my word for it. This arrangement of the furniture is a big improvement!
And then the girls' room got a big re-do, too! We unbunked their beds & they did a big cleaning, too. Ahhh...much better!
Anyway, we didn't finish that til nearly 5pm. The kids (& us!) all usually have a quiet time in the middle of the day where we all retreat to our bedrooms to hide out & nap, read or just do whatever for a little while. Since we never did that today, it makes sense that my wild & crazy party kids (ha ha) would be passed out at 10:30pm!
I hope you all have a HAPPY NEW YEAR & enjoy ringing it in with much happiness & laughter.
