New Years "Campout" 2008-09

Picnic with "camp" food (hot dogs, tater tots, chips, veggies, fruit, and cheese)

Little Hauss' first tent (a tad small, but he didn't notice)

Roasting Marshmallows (in our wood stove) for Smores

SMORES! Little Hauss doesn't get chocoate very often, so this was big treat!

Helping Daddy blow the fire off the marshmallows....Zoey watching hoping for some crumbs!

Our "Campout" was a success. Little Hauss LOVED his tent and making smores! We watched 2 movies and some football, played some games, and just hung out! Little Hauss made it until about 10:30, and finally zonked out! I really wasn't too far behind him. I can't remember the last time I saw the ball actually drop??? I'm getting old!
Today, we've already undecorated the house and it always makes me a little sad! I get used to the normalness eventually, but the tree, lights, and all the specialness from the Christmas decorations just makes the house seem so much warmer. I guess I'll just have to keep on redecorating to finally get it how I want it to be all the time!! I'm sure Hubby will LOVE that. More work for him! I'm hoping to get the light fixtures hung tomorrow!
So, on another note, the HOKIES play today in the Orange Bowl at 8pm! We are having our bestest friends over to watch with us. We haven't seen this couple in way too long.....so it should be fun! We usually see them on a weekly basis, but with all the hustle and bustle from the holidays, its been about a month! I've got turkey and beef sliders, baked beans (mom's recipe), veggies, and kicked up brownies (extra chocolatey with icing) on the menu. Can't wait.

That looks like SO much fun! I'm totally going to borrow your idea when our little guy is older!
