To ring in the New Year, or should I say "pop" in the New Year, the boys laid out lots of bubble wrap on the floor. After the count down ended (3...2....1...), they jumped and danced on the bubble wrapping; thus, we "popped" in the New Year here at the Durst house.
Leading up to the "popping", we enjoyed a nice quiet New Year's Eve. While Robert had hockey practice from 10:30-1:30, Matthew and I went to watch the movie, Bedtime Stories (pretty good movie, but better to watch via DVD). On our way home, we grabbed some take out Chinese food and had a late lunch as we watched the San Jose Sharks vs. Minnesota Wild hockey game on TV. We decided the boys could stay up and bring in the new year as a family, so we had a late dinner, enjoying bowls of cereal and pancakes at 9pm and then we watched the movie, Narnia: Prince Caspian. The ball dropped at 12 and the boys "popped".
Some thougts on the first day of 2009....
