Happy New Year

I'm writing this a day late because of the busy day we had yesterday.  We all got to bed late because we went to a party as a family.  Everyone had a great time.  I slept until nearly 7:00 and the rest of the family slept until 8:30 or so.  We met some friends to go bowling at 10:00, which everyone enjoyed.  I think that the kids may have liked playing in the arcade more than the actual bowling, but the important thing is that they had fun.

We went home for lunch and afterwards I took the kids to Uncle Bill's house to watch some football.  They actually did pretty well with each other.  Meanwhile, Amanda ran a couple of errands.  We met at church and then went back to Uncle Bill's for dinner.  Amanda took the kids home and put them to bed and then I came home after the Rose Bowl ended.  Everyone was ready for bed pretty early yesterday.

The big thing today is that we need to take down the Christmas decorations.  We also need some groceries for the week.  The only snag is that instead of being cold and snowy it is mild and rainy.  Consequently, everyone else is still in bed.  It's one of those mornings.
