Here it is - now how much cash is the Tooth Fairy going to leave? Don't worry, she turned the pillow around so the Tooth Fairy would not have to fly to the back of her pillow to get the tooth.

NOT ONE PICTURE was taken at the NYE party last night. We ended up graciously - really not very graciously at all - hosting the get together (per my norm, I resisted but ended up loving it). As usual, spending time with our friends was great fun. The kids were loud but the adults louder - the kids were messy, but the adults messier - the kids used potty humor, but the adults used more? - the kids played games, but the adults played MORE - the kids had fun but I am pretty sure the adults had more!
Now onto resolutions - We played a game last night where everyone wrote down a couple (some people more). Someone read them out loud then we guessed whose resolution it was. It was goofy but good for a few laughs (and insight). Anyway, today I explained to the kids what a resolution was and asked them what theirs might be...so for 2009 here is what they said:
Ella - She is going to finish Kindergarten...I hope so. She is also going to finish her "love list". This happens to be a running list in her room of whom she loves - so far it consists of Dad, Mom, Jude, Gabe and Ally. She never gets very far because I always throw it away. I didn't know it was something she was actively working on. I guess on my list of resolutions should be to stop cleaning out her desk.
Jude - Play more with toys. Go night night and use good manners (good one Jude)!
Gabe - I am going to make Gabe's for him - learn to sit up, crawl, walk and eat solid foods for a start.
Also noted, they decided to give their future occupations while they were on a roll:
Ella - vet, fashion model and painter
Jude - doctor and fashion model (I had to convince Ella that boys could model too).
