New Year's Eve celebration in the bathroom!

I hope you all had a Happy New Year! Kevin and I went to dinner while my mom and dad took Chase to a movie. I had babyback ribs. Yum Yum! When Chase got home we watched some of the celebrations on T.V., and around 11:30 he wanted to take a bubble bath. At midnight I brought in the Sparkling grape juice and we had a toast! Chase was a prune by the time he got out! I really need to work on the settings on my new camera, we have red eyes!
The next 3 days will be spent with my family from Kentucky and packing up Christmas decorations. I know I've said this before, but I want to thank you for your visits! I really appreciate them. I have more projects coming up soon! I am just posting as life happens, so stay tuned.........

He must have had fun. You look so pretty too!

Hi Kristen! Looks like you are having fun! A bubble bath sounds like a good idea. My 8 year old grandson stayed up until midnight for the first time when he spent the night with me last night. He was so proud of himself, but I think the ball drop was a let down for him after all that effort! He was out by 12:01!...lol...Happy New Year!!...Debbie

Sherry said...

Hi Kristen, Looks like Chase had a good time!! Lisa posted more pic of the twins. I will be back in town Sun. Need something for my front door and kitchen table in TX. Have fun this weekend. Sherry

Tamara Jansen said...

That is just too precious! Happy New Year :)

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

In my book that's the only way to enjoy prunes. LOL! I look forward to getting to know everyone better through my blog visits in the New Year.

There's a bit of sadness for me in taking down the Christmas decorations. Oh well, Valentines is just around the corner....

Sweet New Year Wishes,
Sara

Dawnie said...

that bath looks GREAT and so does he. every time my 3rd grandaughter is here that is her request before she leaves--a warm bath.

Happy New Year to you also..I cant wait to see more decorating ideas. I'm not taking my Christmas stuff down until Sunday...BUT I have already begun placing Valentines things out.

Chris said...

Hugs,
Chris

Good Golly - Chase really knows how to make bubbles.... Looks luxurious!!!

Sounds like you had the perfect New Year's Eve celebration and I'm sure your parents enjoyed spending time with Chase.

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen,
Thanks for coming by and leaving such a kind note.
I saw the "Blog Catalog" link on your blog first so that's why I signed up. HEHE! I'm learning more every day about blogging and it just gets more fun as I go along.

Micasastyle.com is a website very similiar to RMS.
You can create an account and upload spaces and then get rated from 1-5.
It's much smaller in scale
than RMS though. I don't think many people know of it yet. I posted my DR and then got bored and removed it quickly. It was soooo slow. I'm sure you would enjoy it now though. I think more people are on it. I think quite a few RMS'ers are posted on it as well.

Hope your 09' is going wonderfully so far!
~Warmly, Melissa :)

Sarah @ ThriftyDecorChick said...

Oh how cute!! I think that was a great idea he had, I may try that one next year!! :)

Susie Harris said...

Now thats just too sweet~

nikkicrumpet said...

A long pruney bubble bath...not a bad way to ring in the new year! I sure hope it's a great one for you and your family!

santamaker said...

Hi Kristen,
Just coming up for a little bloggy air! I have had a full house now going on 3 weeks and still counting! Fun, but exhausting!
I agree, I feel so sad putting away the Christmas decor. I started taking down the stuff today. I loved your home, the mantle, your sparkly front door and the christmas tablescape. All so beautiful!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Awe... the two of you are both as cute as can be. I am glad we met here in blogland!!
Happy New Year!
Hugs, Terrie

Kelli@SassySouthernMom said...

Hilarious!

I love it! New Year's Eve can't get any better than that!

Have a great weekend!

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

How cute...both of you! My little 9 month old grandson was still up at midnight as was his almost 3 y/o brother..not because we were letting them, but because we have a hard time getting them to sleep at our house!
Happy New Year. I truly look forward to your blog in this new year!
Donna

Cynthia's Cottage Design said...

HI Kristen!

Just popping in to wish you a fabulous 2009!

what a cute picture! so sweet!!

Hugs, Cynthia

Kim Hardt Originals said...

What a darling picture. You guys are so cute! I am so glad that all the Christmas is put away and the house is back to normal. I just wasn't in to it as much as I normally am. I think it was because I put everything up so late this year and because I was so busy with work.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday.

I can't wait to see what Kristen will be up to next.

Have a great week.

Kim

Grand Occasions said...

Now that's my kind of bubbly! What a great way to ring in the new year.

Sharon Kay said...

Hi.....just found you and thought I would stop and say hi. Your little guy is just to cute and looks very happy in the bubbles. Wishing you and your family a happy 2009

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

What a great pic! So cute. My son used to do that...stay in until he was a swriveled up old prune. Don't know if this helps but I have Vista on my computer and if I go into Microsoft Office Picture Manager, there's an option you can click on that somehow magically removes red out of the eyes in pics. I don't know if this option was available on XP or the other operating systems but it came with Vista, I think. Susan

What a cute picture! Happy New Year to you!

First time on your blog!! I have a son Chase (now 24) and a daughter Whitney (20) and we still toast the New Years in with our sparkling cider. We have been doing it since they were old enough to toast in the New Years. Great Family Tradition!!! Love your blog!
Hugs and blessings in 2009,

Thanks for the comment. Hopefully I'll take to blogging like a duck takes to water and be able to contribute things that are interesting and helpful. Keep making time for bubble baths at midnight! If you do, by the time he's grown you'll have a treasure chest of memories to cherish and he will too.

Sandy said...

how sweet and fun!
