There's no question about how to spend our New Year's Eve. We've always celebrated at my mom and dad's, and we always will.
It's a low-key get-together, which is perfect after all of the hectic running around, partying and craziness that comes with Christmas time.
It's kind of a meeting place for everyone and there's always a nice spread in the kitchen for a grand finale to what I'll call "The Gluttonous Phase", which starts about 2 weeks before Christmas, and I'm more than ready to recover from by the first of the year.
We got to see Dani-Lynn, who loved spending some time with little Ben. They spent that time poking,
and exchanging "love taps".
They're going to be real buddies when they're a bit older.
We broke out the Guitar Hero for a while, but other than that, it was a quiet evening. A couple of the kids were sick, which puts a damper on things, but other than that, it was a great night.
Thanks mom and dad for having the house that is like home for so many people!
Let's bring on 2014. I have a feeling it's going to be a great year!
