New Years Eve 2013

A month or so before New Years, Jake threw out the idea of doing a "Around the World" Party for New Years Eve.  We got a couple friends from the neighborhood to host a different country and walk from house to house.  Each home would have appetizers and drinks, and something fun for the kiddos.  To start the day we had three homes and three counties...Italy, Mexico, and Peru.  Sadly, Peru had to back out last minute because Jenn's husband and little boy were sick. 

The Rossitto's of course took on Italy and did a kick butt job.  Tons of amazing appetizers and fun drinks for all. 

Sam and Jess did glitter tattoos' for all the kids.

Siena and Madden were so sweet together.  I think Madden has his first crush.  

New Years Sass!  Love these two girls!

No clue why I'm holding Skylar's baby in this picture.

After Italy we headed over to Mexico (our place).  Jake put together everything as I had to work until 3:00.   He did fresh squeezed lemon/lime margaritas.  Shredded chicken tacos, stuffed jalapenos, and quesadilla for the kiddos and it all turned out amazing.    

Jake pick up a piñata for the kids which was a ton of fun.  

All that t-ball has finally paid off because Sophie put an end to the piñata and the kids swarmed all the goodies instantly.

It was after 8:30 PM that he kids were starting to lose it.  They had been going since 3:00 PM, eating mostly sugar and were starting to crash.  Skylar, Jake, and I made it up for the East Coast New Years Eve, while Madden was in bed.  We put Skylar down by 9:30 PM as she was exhausted.  I only lasted another hour or so, while Jake made it to 12:06 PM he said.  The "Around the World" party was a ton of fun, and I think its only going to get better as the kids get older and are able to stay up later. 

So I have two New Years Resolutions:
1) Floss my teeth more often. 
2) Make sure I get more family pictures.  I feel like I never get enough pictures of the four of us together and I want to make sure I change that in 2014.
