Flashback Friday: Happy New Year 2007!!!

OK, I know I have not blogged in quite some time. In fact, I have not blogged at all in 2007. What better way to resume blogging again, then to reminisce about how we rang in 2007?

Over the past few years, Mrs. Colon Blow and I have opted to stay home on New Year's Eve. We just do not want to deal with the crazy drunks that are out driving that night. Mrs. CB usually just cooks up a couple of lobster tails, makes a great dinner and we wait for the new year to arrive. Actually, I usually wait alone while she sleeps next to me on the couch. I shake her at about 11:45PM, force feed her some champagne at midnight and shuffle off to bed a few minutes later.

This year we invited Mrs. CB's sister to come over with her husband and two children (my 3 year old niece and 5 year old nephew) for a New Year's Eve sleep over.

We started out the evening with another great dinner and plans to watch the Chicago Bears play the Green Bay Packers after dinner. Unfortunately, watching the Bears v.s. the Packers was a big disappointment unless you were a Packers fan. It was so bad, I did not argue with my brother-in-law when he suggested we switch the station and watch a college football game instead.

Mrs. CB and her sister decided to "tackle" another form of entertainment after dinner with my niece and nephew. They decided to assemble a gingerbread house from a kit that they bought a couple of weeks before. As you can see from the above photo, the experience was quite exhausting for my dear sister-in-law.

We put the children to bed after the gingerbread house was assembled and got down to some serious New Year's Eve partying!

To be honest, we were too tired (and I for one too old) to party very hard. But hey, don't we look like wild party animals in the above photo?

Welcome back to the blogging world! Maybe you should take an afternoon nap so that you can make it to midnight without so much trouble.
I love the picture of Waz on the sofa!

Starting the blogging year with a flashback was a very good idea. Welcome back!

You may feel old but look at those nicely manicured eyebrows.
