One thing we missed while living elsewhere were parties. Our friends here in Cincy love to have parties. We have been to more parties in six months than I think we went to our entire time in KS. We did fun things in KS with friends, but they weren't the kind of people to have lots of people over for lots of food, beverages and general mayhem. Tomorrow we are going to a party, the 2nd one that this particular couple has hosted since we moved here in July. We have been to a variety of adult birthday parties and have three New Year's Eve invitations. Sometimes the kids go with us when there will be other kids for them to play with and sometimes we get a sitter and go the adults only route. We have been to a party with a band, a pool party, a Christmas party (and another tomorrow) and your general "let's get together and eat and drink, maybe play a game or two" party! We have celebrated friends turning 40 and 50. We have even hosted a party. In some ways, it's good to be back.
