Winter Nights

Tonight was a "Winter Nights" celebration at my sister's house. All my cousins on my mom's side of the family attended (3) so there were 5 of us in all. It was so much fun. Winter nights started as "summer nights" many years ago. It was just a time to hang with the cousins, drink, eat, and laugh a lot. Tonight was no different. My sister made us all pasta and garlic bread, plus there was plenty of junk to snack on like Newman-O's, redvines, and tofutti cuties. I always have so much fun with them, wish we hung out more often. We usually crank call family members and dare each other to do it to our grandma, I don't think anyone actually has called grandma, but our moms get plenty of calls. No kids or significant others are welcome.
I had a glass of wine and on the way home there was a sobriety check point, but on the other side of the street. I'm sure I would have been fine as I didn't drive for a few hours after the drink, but it still freaked me out for a second. Then I just laughed and called my sister to tell her about it.
When I got home, Rowan was screaming. He was tired and Chris had run out of milk for him. I felt bad, but I guess he was only really upset for 10 minutes. Chris was walking him around in the ergo and Athena was reading books on the couch. He went right to sleep once he had mom. Anyway, now I know I'll need to leave more milk for him next time I leave him for that long! Hope everyone else had a fun Saturday night!
We also tried to play this American Idol Karaoke game, but my sister's CD player wasn't working and the game was kind of boring so we cheated and skipped ahead to the singing part without the CD.
