Happy New Year’s Eve!

Happy Birthday to Ian and Tim.  Today they’re 17.  Who knew those wee goofy little babies would end up being so handsome and smart and funny and awwww . . . talk amongst yourselves.  Like buttah they are.  (This was our Christmas letter picture – ignore scary Andy – Ian and Tim are on your right, Ian in back, Tim up front.)
I’ve been down since Christmas Day with a cold/cough thing that is maddeningly stupid.  Andy and Ian have it too, but they’re young and don’t seem quite as pathetic as I do lately.  I found some good cough medicine in my tool box/medicine box and I’m back up for New Year’s.  Just don’t ask me to drink or drive.
In honor of the New Year, I’ve started a Facebook “poll” of sorts.  For those of you not on Facebook, I don’t want you to miss out on the fun.  (For the record, we have invited this neighbor to every single holiday/party event for the past 10 years.) 
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone. In addition to wishing Ian and Tim a Happy 17th Birthday, I think it’s time to start my new annual crazy neighbor poll. We’re expecting between 20-40 people (kids and adults) tonight to celebrate the twins’ birthday and to ring in the new year. (more in comments) This is actually a “small” NYE party for us. Nonetheless, we KNOW our neighbor will be calling the police. We’re expecting people to start showing up around 7ish. Six soaps to the person who guesses closest to the minute when the first police cruiser pulls up to the house

I’ve debated about adding a paypal donation bar here (you know, for bail money) but I’m going with good will for now.  Wishing all of you a happy, healthy 2011!!!

  1. Good lookin' bunch of boys! But Tim…clone yourself much? Damn. While they were small, I thought “all those boys, that poor woman.” But now that they're big, it seems so nice to have all that teen boy energy around. From here. With no teen boys in my house yet.

  2. We'll play – Eric says 8:43. We're thankful our neighbors don't mind flying rubber tipped arrows and darts. Feel better for the new year. Have a great party!

  3. OMG I was totally thinking 8:43, but since that time is already taken, I'll pick 8:47 PM. I don't Facebook, so you'll have to let us know how it turns out.

    I didn't even know you were still selling soap! I'm so excited. I've been cutting those free bars you gave me in half to make them last. I'm off to see what you've got on there!

    Happy New Year's Eve and Happy Twin Birthdays!!!

  4. Deana, it IS kind of nice having a troupe of body guards around me – seems like a fair pay-off for the earlier years. Let me know when you're ready for some teen boy energy – I have plenty to spare. 8)

    Tim? Really? Of all the boys, he probably looks the least like me. LOL, but thanks because he is mighty purty. Andy (minus the crazy eyes) looks the most like me as a kid.
