A very tired New Year’s Eve

Look, Interent: I am smiling. And then one hour later at 10:30 PM I was asleep. (Picture kindly taken by Beth who says she made it all the way to midnight back at her house. Parents, we ROCK.)

    Happy New Year!

    The only way we made it to midnight at my house was the fact that neither of us felt like drinking this year.

    Someone take our temperatures, immediately! Um, rectally, if I get to have my choice.

    Jon was hitting the bottle pretty hard eh? Oh…wait…that’s a baby bottle.

    Dear God – staying up until midnight this year was a challenge. The only thing that kept us awake was A) the kids – the kids shouldn’t spend New Year’s with their parents asleep. B) the realization that we must now be officially old. We sat and laughed at each other until 12:01. then we fell asleep.

    Wonderful smiles! Nice bottle in the background! Was Jon sucking on that?

    Happy New Year to you, Jon, Leta and Chuck. May it be healthy, happy and full of poop.

    On Saturday afternoon I was waiting on a family at the restaraunt where I work and when I brought out drinks the little girl asked me, “Did your mom let you stay up until midnight last night?” and I said yes, and asked her if she watched the ball drop on tv. She said, “I wanted to watch it, but I fell asleep before midnight. I’m only six you know.”

    Happy New Year!

    I like the baby bottle in the background

    Yes, very nice dentatas you have there.

    And I like your wood-paneled ceiling too.

    Such a wonderful photo.

    Ah, parents indeed. That explains the baby bottle instead of the Makers Mark bottle over Jon’s shoulder.

    :)

    Happy 2005!!

    When are you people going to learn that when there are no comments and you are in the middle of leaving what you think is the first one, you are not “locked in” to the position?

    Some other person is typing frantically, fingers shaking with anticipation, thinking they are going to be first. You can’t BOTH be first. Sheesh!

    Happy New Year everyone.

  • Carol

    Great smile!! Happy New Year to everyone.

  • http://www.lateshow.org Chris

    Whoa! A smiling Heather captured in photo? Awesome! I hope 2005 brings many more of those.

    (Both, smiles for you guys and pictures of you smiling!)

    Happy New Year, Armstrongs!

    What a sweet photo; you both look lovely.

    Jennay, what a cute story! I love it when kids say things like that.

  • http://thinkdrastic.net/ Olly

    Hegh, you two look knackered ;o)

    What a sweet couple!

  • http://www.august95.blogspot.com August95

    You look like you are both having a great time. We napped and then woke up at 11:00. Sorry I am old, it’s the only way I can see midnight.

  • http://holyschmidt.blogspot.com Melanie S

    What a great couple!

  • ha…

    looks like you might need a second timer for all those that clamour for first place….

    Now that’s much better.

    Happy New Year Armstrongs!!!

    You can here the Jaws theme quietly being played as the baby bottle circles its prey. The crescendo hits somewhere as the two of you nod off around 10:30.

  • dänika

    It’s the Scrumptious Bearded Armstrong!

    Heather, you are beautiful. And yes, it’s easy to see Leta in each of you two.

    Happy New Year! You guys are a very handsome couple :)

    You had said earlier that someone suggested that your baby has autism. For one, parents do not cause autism. Don’t know why she would suggest that? But from reading this stuff about your baby for a few months or so, I, myself, can see signs of autism. Of course, I don’t claim any expertise in the matter, but I’ve met parent with autistic [and creative, intelligent] kids. My suggestion, should you not frigg out on this post, is do some research. I’m sure your baby is wonderful and beautiful in every way. And she’s worth the effort in talking to your doctors about these concerns.

    I see Jons beard is really working out for him!

    You both are loverly!

  • Assuming

    Assuming Heather has or hasn’t talked with doctors about “these concerns” is like assuming SHE NEVER SMILES because she doesn’t post pictures of herself smiling very often.

    FOLKS, repeat after me:
    I am not ominpotent. I must not assume I know anything comprehensive about Heather’s life.

    AHHH Black Bear the Ass Pirate has caputured a new Wench! ARRRRRRRR

    Pirate Joke – WHat kind of socks do a Pirate wear? ARRRRGYLE

  • http://www.paddy-anne.blogspot.com Paddy

    Holy crap you are a star. It’s like you and Jon just won the most beautiful people award (not that the picture isn’t great…it’s very nice…). Is it wierd to google yourself and find like a million pages on yourself? I was almost surprised that you didn’t come up in IMDB. I thought the search engine might be comprehensive enough at this point to just start listing famous people period. I was wrong.

  • theresa

    Heather,
    Please ignore the post from pretorched curious joe.

    Screaming babies do NOT equal autistic babies. That’s fucking stupid. Don’t let that comment get to you or fill your day with hopeless searching on the net for tests you can do at home to determine whether your child is autistic. Your baby is fine. She sounds totally normal.

    Lord help us all, Kieran (#74) just had to start with the pirate jokes.

    Did you hear about the new pirate movie?
    It’s rated ARRRRRRRR!

    Awesome pic! No better way to welcome a New Year!

    Beautiful smile! Hoping you have a very happy new year and thanks for the daily bread!

  • Chris

    Speaking of ROCK, that’s one nice diamong you got there, lady. Good job, Blurb!

  • http://www.dooce.com dooce

    yeah, that ROCK is from Avon and it’s, um, not real in any way. my mom gave it to me for free. jon’s wedding band cost 10 dollars. we got it at the one of those cart/stands in the middle of a mall. we are C.L.A.S.S.Y.

  • http://www.commuterchaos.com Kieran

    Where do Pirates live when they retire?

  • http://www.lizadahlink.blogspot.com/ Liza

    I just had to say that I do THE SAME THING when my 6 month old is screaming. And I totally did it when my 4 year old was little. Hee hee. I don’t care if it bugs my hubby, it entertains me and makes the baby laugh. The 4 year old even joins in. It’s a wonder the neighbors haven’t called the police.

  • http://missdomestic.com Paige

    I hope that’s your bottle cut with Bourbon in the background. :P

  • http://bucky4eyes.blogspot.com Bucky Four-Eyes

    Heather, you guys really are C.L.A.S.S.Y, at least in my book.
    ‘Course, Jim and I have been married since 1989 and still do not have proper wedding rings (we used $2 specials for the ceremony). We could afford them now, but it’s sooooo fun to watch his Mom go bonkers every Christmas when Jim *still* hasn’t bought me a real weddin’ ring. (she said the nipple ring did not count)

  • http://randomandodd.blogspot.com Kristine

    Bucky-
    you can have my old wedding ring. I really don’t need it anymore ;)
