New Years At Noon!

A couple months ago I found out about a place called Linda's Playhouse. It's an old house, about 30 minutes from our house, that a lady turned into a children's musseum.

We loved the Imagine-It in Atlanta, but it honestly overwhelmed Josie everytime we went.

So I thought Linda's Playhouse would be perfect.

When I found out they were doing a "New Years At Noon" party on New Years Eve I thought it would be perfect. Not only was there no way Josie was going to make it to midnight to ring in the new year, the only way I'm ever up that late is if I drink too much water and have to go potty in the middle of the night.

Tiffany came with me and we had a blast!

I had to laugh that my kid wanted to spend most our time playing with the one thing we have at our house, the grocery store set up!

How sweet is Sissy?!?!

After I coaxed Josie away from the scanner, we hit up the dress up area.

And ended up in the Art Room.

This one was my favorite.

What I wouldn't give for a room with linoleum floors and great lighting where I could set Josie free with all the glitter and paint her little heart desired!

And boy, do these girls like glitter!

I could watch her concentrate all day.

We paid $5 for the kids to play and it was worth every cent.

I hope it doesn't get discovered. I loved that nothing was crowded.

When 12 Noon rolled round we were treated to Sparkling Grape Juice, Cupcakes, Popcorn and all the noise makers we wanted.

Which I wanted zero of and was sneaky enough to "forget" Josie's on the way out!

"Cheers to 2010!"

Then we counted down and rang in (12 hours early) the new year!

I will be fast asleep when we actually ended 2009.

Oh well! Maybe next year we'll make it to midnight!


That's what she said said...

I'm happy to know I'm not the only one who won't make it to midnight. I had a glass of wine @ dinner & will soon pass out.

Hi There!

My name is Tara and I've left a couple of comments on your friends blog Moments with the Mabreys.
I actually started out reading your blog because Lisa and Don Pope were our neighbors for awhile in Senoia. I've always thought you guys lived further away until I read this post. :) Linda's Playhouse is one of my favorite places to take Sophia it is so much fun and we usually spend most of the morning there when I take her. :) We are going to try to take Sophia to the Imagine It Museum on Saturday. I would really like to know what you thought of it if you want to write me back. I hope your having a great New Year!
