New Years Eve '09

Gunnar was thrilled when Lucas asked him to come over and spend the night. I was thrilled when Rocky asked if Chance and Coby could come over for a New Years celebration. John was thrilled when Dan asked if we wanted to go to the Huskies game. Basically, we were all pretty thrilled.

We dropped Gunnar off at grandmas house to stay with Lucas... then we dropped the other two boys off with Rocky... then we headed to Seattle for some basketball.
I love going to the Huskies play. We played the Oregon State Beavers and it was a great game. Thank you Dan!! You're the BEST!!We won 76 to 70!

After the game we went to Bahama Breeze. I got the Jerk Chicken Pasta..."Sliced jerk chicken breast, fresh asparagus and mushrooms tossed in a rich parmesan-herb cream sauce with bow-tie pasta."
So good!! (I ordered it... minus the asparagus and mushrooms)
It was11:00ish when we were done. We decided to go get Chance and Coby and have the New Years countdown, together, at our house. They had already had their party with Rocky and their cousins.

Once again, we watched the ball drop with Dick Clark. Coby poured our sparkling cider...
Happy New Year!!
Our first kiss of 2010.
Self portrait time...Coby's first kiss of 2010...We each said a few words and toasted to the New Year! We missed Gunnar but we had so much fun (I am sure he had a blast with Lucas). I love my family.

Clark Kids Night #9

With Rocky in town we decided to have another sibling night. We made our way to Acme Bowl in Tukwila. We had to wait 30 minutes for a lane to open up so we played a few games in the arcade while we waited.

Romi and Ian played air hockey...Rocky and Beau played basketball and Rocky tried the Wheel of Fortune... (for the life of me I can't remember what this game is me out.)

Nice form Romi.

Ian and I played Guitar Hero.
I really thought I was going to win but I didn't he totally beat me. I don't ROCK as much as I thought.We had so much fun and were almost sad when our lane was ready.

Beau got the first strike of the evening.

Way to go Romi.

Ian looking pleased with himself and me looking...well...not so pleased...

We played 5 games total and we split up in teams each time. The first game the girls won and the second game Romi and Ian beat me, Rocky and Beau.

Rocky and Beau were getting serious...

Romi, Beau and Rocky won the third game.

Afer a while we started getting tired and I think we lost track.Our last game we each tried for our own individual best score. I started the first game of the night with a score of 122 (I beat everybody) but I got worse and worse as the night progressed. My last game was awful (I don't even know what happened). Romi and Ian were competing for all around high scorer. You can tell from the picture below who won...

Romi was #1 We tried to get a picture with all 5 of us. First we cut off Beau's head...then we cut off my face... Finally we broke down and asked someone to take our picture.

I love these beautiful people.

I feel so lucky to have such remarkable brothers and sisters. I know them better now then I ever did and I can't begin to tell you how wonderful they are. We are all so different but somehow the same. I can't explain it.

Thank you mom and dad for giving me my best friends.
