new years rockin' eve!

As I mentioned in my last post, we had a rockin' New Year's Eve party! We had 10 of our closest friends over to help us ring in the new year.

Here are the boys being boys!

Us girls!

Kelly and Holly being silly! Grrr!

No NYE party is complete without a potato gun and fireworks. Here's Doug shooting off the potato gun in the empty lot just behind our house. Our neighbors must LOVE us!

All the girls having a great time just after midnight!

Have you ever wondered, how many guys it takes to start a bonfire? FIVE apparently, and it didn't even stay lit!

The guys played craps and poker until the wee hours of the morning.

Despite how late we all stayed up, the kids still woke up promptly by 7am! Rise and shine!

Even the cousins, Romie and Dempsy, were pooped the next morning!

First kiss of the New Year for Cameron and Leah... How cute!


  1. I'm jealous! Shorts and short sleeves...and palm trees :) And, what did we ever do before Red SOLO cups?

    Thought of another idea for you to honor your angels. You could do packets of seeds and give them to family and friends "Sewing the seeds of love" and you could even do some green bean seeds. Just as thought, as I'm a designer and always trying to think of something different.

    hugs and love

  2. Looks like fun was had by all!! (even the pups!)
    Happy New Year!!
