Happy Malayo!

Before the start of the millenium, I remember my brother Taylor having this toy where you pushed a button and it said(very loudly I might add), "Its the year 2000! Happy Millenium!" He would repeat it and instead of saying "Happy Millenium" he would say "Happy Malayo!!" He was about 5 years old and when we told him no, its millenium, he said, no its malayo. He was so sure it was malayo and we were all wrong. He thought he was right for a couple of years actually. Anyways, there was no point to that story other than I thought it was funny and now every New Years Eve, Joey and I say "Happy Malayo!"

Moving along....

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone partied like it was 1999 last night. We shore did!We drove home from Corpus Christi yesterday and were invited to my bud, Melissa's, house last night for celebrating. Melissa lives just around the corner from us and as soon as Cali woke up from a late nap, we headed over and did a midnight countdown(at 9pm, the kids don't know the difference!). We had a lot of fun ringing in the new year with good friends. Thanks for the great food and fun Bryson gang!

The kids had a blast with silly string and made a mess of the Bryson's home. We left immediately right after the silly string mess was made so we wouldn't have to help clean up. :) j/k

Also, I have SOOOO much blog catch-up to do! We spent the holidays in good ol' South Texas with the family and I have slacked in the blog department. I did feel an almost magnetic force pulling me to any room that had a computer while we were there. I fought the force and I won. I was blog free for 10 days! It was rough man. So, anyways, be prepared for a buttload of posts and pics coming very soon whether you wanted them or not! :)
