Party Animal

Happy New Year everyone! Well, I’m finally recovered from our New Year’s Eve bash. It was outrageously fun and as you can tell, maybe a little too much fun. Orielle took that picture of me in her attempt to get even for those “precious moments” I caught of her on camera. As you can tell from the crooked picture, she was having a little too much fun herself. Now, how that lamp shade got on my head I’ll never know. Everyone just giggles when I bring it up.

After a day of recovery, we all got together to tell each other our New Year’s resolutions. This year, I want to take up a few new hobbies. I’m thinking maybe dance lessons and advancing my photography skills, as well as possibly getting into movie making. And I definitely want to learn Japanese. Imagine watching Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla in its original language! How amazing is that!!! Oh yeah, I’m also going to take up karate.

Orielle said she wants to do more traveling, baking, and exercising. But her main resolution was to be more careful about getting caught in embarrassing moments by me and my camera (hee, hee, hee).

Benny also wants to keep fit and trim by exercising regularly. His main resolution is, of course, to perfect his magic skills -- but he’s also talking about going to clown school.

Aimee had no interest in resolutions whatsoever. We asked her if she wanted to try an exercise program like the rest of us. She said no. We asked if maybe she wanted to take up ballet to learn poise. She said no. We asked if she would like to try to curb her toilet paper fetish, but again, she said no. She finally explained, “I don’t like change. I just like everything the way it is.” Isn’t she cute?

Brin,
Glad to hear all of you made resolutions (except Aim, she's a freshy!) All resolutions that were made in our house are broken already! King's was to stop being such a PITA, but that lasted until 20 seconds after the ball dropped. Scooter: her's was to try to stop leaving hairballs all over, FAILED! Pandora: she was going to try to stop being such a meanie to me, but she's worse than EVER! And mine, well, since I'm SUCH a Mommy's girl, was to try to be nicer to everyone else, NOPE! I WUV MY MOMMY! She's MINE! Keep us posted on how you're doing with your resolutions...
Toodles!
