Happy New Year 2015

We had such a great New Year's Eve and it did not involve dressing up or going out anywhere.  Instead, the DGDs came to our house to spend the night while their parents went out on the town.  It was a simple evening with dinner, Wii, watching "Peter Pan" and toasting in the New Year as we watched the ball drop in Times Square.  Amazingly, the girls managed to stay awake until midnight but they were in bed fast asleep very soon after.  We all slept in this morning. 

This afternoon, Jon and Lissa rode their bikes over to retrieve the girls.  They had brought the girls' bikes over the night before.  We snacked on guacamole, chips, cheese and crackers while everyone once again played Wii.  Then they hopped on their bikes and rode back home to the west end of Alameda.  Jim watched the end of the Oregon/Florida game at the Rose Bowl and now he is rooting for Ohio against Alabama at the Sugar Bowl.  
 It's a Happy start to a New Year!
