After the children were tucked snuggly into bed, we crept into the office to romantically sit back to back at our computers. We then ended 2009 with the worst mistake of the year: watching Land of the Lost. Silly fun, but I was tired and it definately was not a good movie to help me stay awake for the ringing in of the new year.
With 30 minutes to spare, I convinced Chris to waste the time away playing Peggle with me on our XBox360 - our new family favorite game. However, with just 15 minutes to go we heard a commotion above us and I rushed upstairs to comfort a non-sleeping baby back into slumber.
With just 5 minutes to spare, I found Chris back at his computer. I took my place across the room. And soon, the clock stroked midnight.
"Do you want a kiss?" Chris asked.
"Mm, nah," I sighed, not wanting to leave my comfy seat.
A minute passed.
"I can not believe you haven't come over here to kiss me yet," I muttered.
Then, I heard a chair creak. And I received my kiss.
And THAT is a terrific beginning for the new year.
