This is what Jan 1 looks like at out house. Furniture in the garage, kitchen a little messy. Calves hurt from dancing.
Things I learned this year: young teens dont dance, especially if old people are around (but they will play minute-to-win-it games against their parents and have a blast). Tween girls won't dance if there are cute young teen boys around (this meant that there were only about 3 of us dancing, I'm 40+ which means Im gonna dance if I wanna dance, cute boys or not). My dining room light fixture is an interrogation light if you are sitting in the wrong spot. Cosmos should not be full strength if you are serving them in plastic cups.

Somebody is too big for birthday parties now... so I made treats for last nights basketball scrimmage. The first attempt looked like volcanoes. But, the second go turned out pretty nice!
chocolate cake in ice cream cones, topped with less-fluffy frosting, sprinkles and a cherry. put in a solo cup with skittles in the bottom to keep them from tipping on the way to the gym. a hit! although next time I might try for fluffy frosting that would keep the cherries on better.
