We decided for a New Year’s Eve at home this year. It’s been awhile. And it was nice. We went to dinner then just played games all evening waiting for midnight. We even convinced Dale and Cheri to stay up the whole time with us!
It takes Sequence, Sequence Dice, Left/Center/Right, Uno, Pictionary and Monopoly to keep us all up till midnight. Oh and chocolate, coke, wine and Sparkling Grape Juice!
Started with Sequence

Grandpa on for Pictionary
Oh my gosh, he was so cute drawing. His tongue went non stop.

Trying to kill time…
Happy New Year!! (I liked this one best, but I wasn’t in it, so they insisted on a retake with all of us.)
Nicki and I have been meaning to go visit Leslie for years…literally. She moved to her ‘new’ house awhile ago and we always intend to go, but never find the time. So when we saw her last week, she said she had a day off coming up! We planned a two day trip to see her. Then the day before leaving, we got the call that they had sickness around their house. As much as we love her and her girls, I’m not ready to deal with illness all over again! Plus, how crappy for her to have company right after being in bed sick for days. So we altered our plans. We chose to take the boys to Indy for the night for some fun.
Nick and I love to travel together. We are both very stress free when traveling and open to being spontaneous and changing plans when needed. So the only solid plan we had was stay in a hotel and take the boys to SkyZone at some point. We planned the rest as we went. Here’s what we came up with. FUN!
Started with breakfast on the go!
And we forgot goggles, so had to take a quick detour to a Dick’s. We found quite a few in the Indy area!
Dave and Buster’s for dinner!
Look at my view while standing in front of my hotel!
Elevator selfie! I’m the only one in focus! HA!
Dinner Jimmy John’s
While trying to find parking so we could eat at Jimmy John’s downtown Indy, the boys saw this giant tree of lights. So after dinner, we decided to walk down and get a few pics in front of it. I LOVE Indy. So much fun.
“I can’t see!” Patrick trying to squeeze into the shot.
And a few more pics to enjoy from the trip are here.
