Snapshots of Our New Year's Eve

Mark made cinnamon rolls for everyone for a New Year's treat.  Four cans, not one left. 

Lilith spent the entire time curled up with her Nook (a Christmas present from my mother) reading the 4th and then the 5th Percy Jackson book.

Logan was playing bunnies and itty bitty tea party with Ivy on the table, while Gryphon moped in the corner because he didn't have any masculine-type games to play with someone.  Rowan and Ivy also spent a lot of the evening building houses for said bunnies with the duplos. 

Lachlan had found his Frodo and a dragon, and Frodo was riding a dragon around the house.  Now, I really didn't expect Lachlan to ever play with Frodo:  but everyone else got a LOTR figure based on their Halloween costume, and I didn't want him to be left out.  So I am pleased that he knows it's his and plays with it sometimes.  Frodo was later dropped for Seraphyna's My Little Ponies.

Seraphyna got jazzed off the sugar from the cinnamon rolls and ran around shrieking and chewing on random things.  She also threw all of Ivy's baby dolls out of the toy bed and climbed in herself, chattering to the remaining inhabitants. 

At one point I glanced in the boys' room and saw Logan holding Batman, who was now wielding Aragorn's sword.  I'm sure he would be unstoppable. 

Right before bedtime Logan and Gryphon reconciled, and re-enacted the choosing of the wands from Harry Potter, after first dumping two rooms' worth of costumes on the floor to find robes.

Right now it is 12:11am, and I am cuddling a Seraphyna who is having trouble staying asleep due to snot.  Mark lasted until 11:21, then headed to bed.  He is also sick, and had been trying to fall asleep for at least an hour.  Rowan had a nightmare and is now curled up in his Avenger's blanket in here and passed back out.  Lachlan fell asleep before Mark went to bed.  Now if i can just get Seraphyna laid down,  we'll all snooze into the New Year.
