Happy New Year

Hope you guys had a great night! We spent the night with good friends -- eating good food. Seems to be a trend with us! We did fair the cold weather and walked to Grand Army Plaza (in Brooklyn) to see the fireworks. The show wasn't that spectacular but we felt like kids cheering and hugging and just plain being goofy!

Gabe did swing me around in my puffy coat sending me flying into our very good friend Aubrey...bad news was he also sent Aubrey's camera flying (yes we broke it)! Wish we had a picture of that!

I think that means that 2009 will be filled with a little bit of wackiness and understanding...sounds good to me!

Settlers of Catan

Just for the record- I have now won twice in a row...
This is not my favorite game but always play bc Gabe loves it so much~ he may not be loving it so much anymore!

A song for Dakota, by Gabe

To the tune of "Butterfly Kisses" (the chorus)

Belly scratching after bedtime prayer
Picking dingle berries from her derriere
Walk beside the curb, daddy, it’s my first time
I know my paws are muddy, daddy, but I sure tried
Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve her dump every morning
And slobbery kisses at night

Belated Halloween post

My best friend from college came to town with her husband Joel, and pup Scout! We had a fantastic time doing nothing at was great- we didn't even venture into the big bad city (which to be honest Gabe and I don't enjoy doing all that much).
My favorite thing (no, not beating everyone in a game of Settlers of Catan) was around 11:30 on Halloween night we made some hot cocoa and went on our stoop to watch the folks in costume going to the bar down the road. The dogs came out with us, we were all bundled up drinking a warm treat, and we saw crazy costumes.
We made some pretty yummy meals, went on a long walk, played games, cleaned out the closet (thanks Kelli for letting me throw stuff at you:)Then on Sunday morning it was the annual NYC marathon- this is the Robinson's favorite thing to watch (Kelli and Joel were huge sports although they probably wanted to kill us after an hour)
We were so glad they made the trek and the dogs were fast friends!

D and her Momma

Dakota (the pup) and I are chilling at home this weekend while Gabe is in Florida with the Rob's. Unfortunately vacation days aren't in abundance and he had to use them before Jan 1st- and I have to save he went to play without me~I had to push him and re-assure him a million times that I didn't mind:)

Sounds like they are having a great time, he and my 8 year old niece went on space mountain. That brought back some memories. The first time I rode on it I was probably around the same age and I was with my step dad. This roller coaster is in doors and pitch black and I was terrified but also super excited. I remember swearing the whole time (thankfully pops couldn't hear me)~ and I am pretty sure I wanted to ride it again right away!

I need to really go back to my last post and fill in some blanks (we had about 3 other out town guests since then)but as of right now, D and I are going to bed so maybe that will happen tomorrow night....
