Some Highlights of My Last Day in 2005

1. Walking into the playroom where Hannah was playing with her new AquaDoodle and having her say, "Hey Mom! If you lick this, it turns blue!" Niiiiice.

2. Having Grace give me a 5 minute "lesson" in how if you squeeze a snake's neck over a glass, you can "milk" it and have "milk" come out of its mouth into the glass.

3. After explaining to her that it's not milk, but poisoness venim, she said, "Yeah. That's why you have to wear gloves and goggles. Because if you get touched by it, you'll "get dead." Alrighty then... no more watching Animal Planet with Daddy for awhile...

4. Heard nearby gunshots at midnight. Because, ya know... fireworks would be WAY too dangerous.

5. Wondered who the hell gets stuck cleaning up all that damn confetti in Times Square after everyone goes home.

6. Realized my rubbed off, worn out credit card finally expires this year.

7. Am thrilled we're finally in an even-numbered year. I hate odd numbers.

8. Wondered if I'll ever again be next to anyone awake at midnight on New Year's Eve. Even my damn cats are asleep.

9. Decided that the kids' showerhead we gave Grace for Christmas may be a double-edged sword. She took three showers today (and begged for more), each lasting about 45 minutes. At least she'll be a clean child, right?

10. Laughed my ass off when Hannah threw a diaper at Steve, and said in a rather stern voice, "Dad! Change my diaper!.... NOW!" Way to go kid!

11. Laughed even harder when she called him a dorkus after he was done. Such wonderful, demure daughters I've raised.

12. Looked around and decided that life doesn't really get much better than this...


HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!!

May your 2006 be happy and healthy and filled with wonderful surprises.

Quin was spraying orange juice out of his mouth on his Aqua Doodle, enjoying the splatter effect. LOL

Happy New Year, friend!!

EE said...

OMG, Haley tells us *all* the time to do something "RIGHT NOW!". My kids have been "experimenting" w/ the Aquadoodle too, LMAO. Lovely.

I'm so LOL at Grace explaining to you how to "milk a snake" and then the "get dead" part. Grace is awesome.

Happy New Year my dear! :)

Alien said...

LOL Katherine, yes, she's quite the animal lover. But she prefers animals like snakes and sharks. She got a buttload of reptile and shark books for Christmas and she makes us read them ALL the time. [sigh] LOL!

And I'm very glad to hear my child isn't the only one to see how many ways they can use their AquaDoodles. LMAO!

Well you KNOW that both of your girls were born in "odd" years. LOL! ;)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I was thinking about an Aqua Doodle for Jerrett this year...he'd probably be in deep trouble right now if I had gotten it! He would have the screen off or something...

Janet said...

You should come to our house next year, we were up well past midnight!

Dick Clark said that there are 100 sanitation workers standing by and they spend the entire night cleaning up the confetti:-) Happy New Year to them!

Happy New Year to you!

Giant marshmallows?

Happy New YEAR Alien and family :)

and they look like cups to me

Alien said...

LOL guys! Steve went outside and filled paper cups with snow for them (they like to eat it). But he packed it down really hard and the snow became hard cup-shaped snowballs. LOL!

So it's um... snow. ;)
