New Year's Eve Shin Dig

Did you know New Year's doesn't happen until midnight!! I'm sure that for some of you staying up till 12 o'clock a.m. is no biggy, but for a chick who hits the hay at 8:30...I'm not joking here folks...our house is DARK by 8:45 tops. Trying to stay up until the wee est hour of the morning was a force to be reckoned with. Luckily, we had some company to help. Trever's sister Cassi and her sons were here from out of town, as well as Trev's brother Beau and his family, Mom and Dad Lewis headed over and so did Ty, which made for one heck of a Lewis Family gathering. We wouldn't have been able to catch some ZZZ's even if we wanted to! Papa Charlie did the cooking so you know we all ate too much, a half dozen rounds of Rummikub, too much coke to count, seven little boys to keep track of, and with Beau as our entertainment we made it till the BALL dropped at midnight. We made beds for all the boys upstairs and by 10:30 they were all crashed. Which meant they were bright eyed and bushy tailed at the bum crack of dawn. So with the help of some more "Mormon coffee"(a diet coke or 2;) I was able to pull it together enough to make waffles for the masses.
It was such a fun party! The Lewis Family doesn't get to be all together very often, these times are what makes for some sweet memories down the road. I have been blessed with a wonderful "in-law" family, one that I am GREATLY thanful for.
Another year is upon us and I can't wait to see what's in store for our little families. I pray that through what ever comes our way we remember that we are sealed together forever, our Father in Heaven loves us, and what ever doesn't kill us will make us stronger.
