Our neighbors, Matt and Genie, have a great New Years Eve party every year. Matt has built an impressive "Ducky Downs" duck race in his garage. The kids get to race first, then the grown ups. Evan had so much fun at the races - his duck was named Wonder Duck - and he cheered "Go Wonder Duck - Go Wonder Duck" over and over every time the ducks raced. Later in the evening, we were able to take him home, put him to sleep in his bed, and then carry him back to one of the bedrooms above the party. (He never woke up through the transfer!) We were able to actually stay at the party for New Years!! We had so much fun!! Happy 2009!
