Happy New Year!

Last night we had a great crew over for our impromptu New Year's party. I have posted a pic of our party crew just after midnight (minus the Hansen's and Maria who unfortunately had to leave early). The big girls spent most of the night with the Wii and High School Musical, and the little girls played with the new kitchen grampa put together, and played "camping" in the dark, and Ethan... well... he was literally the "odd man out". I told him I was sorry that none of the families I got to come had kids his age to which he replied... "Ok, well, I don't really need kids my age... just boys." :-) Awww. He couldn't take the loud giggling and being silly after awhile and sat in our room and watched "Back to the Future" on our computer.
I couldn't believe the little kids lasted so long, or rather their parents!!
I am so excited to have a house, or more importantly, a kitchen big enough to have friends over. We had such a great time and a great NAP this afternoon!!

The real star of the show last night was this beauty! For those of you who may not know... I had NOT had a dishwasher a single day of our 14 year marriage, until we moved into this house! So today I share with you my "Ode to My Dishwasher"

"Ode to a Dishwasher"

Dishwasher, dishwasher how I love thee

Since I've had you I feel very free.

No more scouring and washing for hours and hours,

I am truly amazed by your dish washing powers.

Last night I had a party with family and friends

We loaded you up at our parties end.

When I woke up and opened the door

All of my dishes were dirty no more!

Dishwasher, don't break! What would I do?

Now I could never live without you!

You crack me up Tracey! I'm glad you had a good party...Almost as cool as our party with "Fearless Flores...2 Dolla". Yup, we went to Santa's Village and thought of you guys the whole time we were there. The kids were pooped when we got home so we didn't join any parties but I'm glad yours went well! Happy New Year!

Oh yeah, Brad isn't in the picture, and neither is Elise! We didn't notice 'til later, and asked her where she was... and she was in the bathroom :-( oops.

I just told Jeromy about your first dishwasher in 14 years, and he informed me that I haven't had it rough. Wow! I really can't believe that!

"I had NOT had a dishwasher a single day of our 14 year marriage, until we moved into this house!"

Hmmm... who used to be your dishwashing machine? :)
