Happy New Year- 12 years and counting

On the First New Years Eve we were all married, we started our tradition of fondue and games with Heather and Brent. Our games have evolved (from Compatablity and Catch Phrase, to Settlers and Poker, to this year the Wii) but 12 years and 5 kids later we are still doing basically the same thing. (although this year in H&B's very fun new house!)I would like to think we are able to do the same thing because we are such great parents that we are able to manage our kids so well that we don't have to change anything. In reality it is probably because we weren't really all that exciting back then either so our wild New Years Eve isn't that hard to incorporate the 1, 3, 4, and two 6 year-olds into. Then again, back then I wasn't up doing a blog post at 6:00 am on New Years morning because the 4 year-old is already up and playing and I'm trying to keep him quiet enough that he doesn't wake everyone else up. I'm not going to dwell on the fact that back in 1996 I usually got about twice the sleep I do now... Anyway- Happy New Year! Thanks for haning out with us all these years Magnusons! Stay tuned for Thursday... we take off at 6:00 am for DISNEYLAND! Our hotel says it has wireless, so I will try and put up pictures while we are there.
