On New Year's Eve, I worked as usual, but this year Joe brought the boys to the event I was working at that evening. They had fun making masks, noisemakers and crowns:
Then afterwards I did make it home before midnight (shortly after 11pm). To my surprise, the boys were still up. They had decided to try to make it to midnight this year. So, I ended up getting to spend a little time (about 40 minutes) with the family at home afterall.

Then, at 5 minutes 'til midnight, we looked over and saw this...
They almost made it! lol Maybe next year.
