We usually make party plans or have a sleepover with the kids for New Years, but this year we decided to just stay in with the boys. Jon got them sparkling apple juice.
I got us sparkling wine.
Bastian fell asleep before midnight, Aleks' first loose tooth finally fell out at about 11:30, Jon couldn't find a streaming ball drop video anywhere, and we missed the countdown. When we saw it was midnight already, we said our "Happy New Year"s and gave each other all kisses. There wasn't much noise outside, which is unusual for our block. Jon and Aleks went on World of Warcraft and watched the fireworks in Thunder Bluff.
They loved it.
I told them they were nerds.
The toothless wonder! He wrote a note to the tooth fairy explaining that he would like for her(?) to give the tooth to his parents (spelled parints) so he could see it in their hands when he called (spelled cold) for it. It was very cute. He cried when he thought she might take it away. I told him he explained it very well and I'm sure she'd honor his request.
