Happy New Year's Eve-Eve!

Have any of you done the "Elf Yourself" thing, or was that so 2009?  Well, we missed it last year, but cracked ourselves up doing it this year.  Maybe it will crack you up, too.  Enjoy!

Hope you all have a wonderful New Year's Eve weekend, and find lots to laugh about and enjoy!  As for us, I'm taking the Things to a local kids' party place full of inflatable play structures for a very active New Year's Eve party (which ends at 6 p.m., just our speed!).  Hopefully Thing 2 won't mind if I bounce a little, too.  And Mr. Handsome-and-Handy will get a few hours' peace and quiet after the excitement of having the kids home on vacation all week!

P.S. Oh, and I have a shameless plug for my alma mater:  the Cal Poly universities create a float each year for the Tournament of Roses parade.  They'd really love to receive the KTLA Viewers' Choice Award [click here to go to the voting page - voting is open 8 a.m. - 2:10 p.m. PST].  I vote for their float each year, not just because I went to college at one of these schools, but because unlike most of the other floats, this one is completely created by students at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Cal Poly Pomona.  Theirs have been the only student-built floral floats in the parade since 1949.  (Note to self:  Add "help with the Cal Poly rose float during a future Deco Week" to my bucket list; I think it's the only thing I regret not doing during my college years.)

Happy New Year! I love the elf yourself video. Kind of a tropical holiday!

I did one in 2009 with me, Pixie, and our older cat,Chloe and sent it to John. T'was very funny!

I am just hoping to make it to midnight. We are a little old and frumpy with NYE, LOL!

Hmm, had never heard of elf yourself. Strange idea, that.
