Ever since we had children we have spent New Year's alone toasting at midnight. Well this year we decided to have friends over who have basically been doing the same thing. Well to tell the truth my dear friend Kristy coming in to town to visit convinced us to get together. It gave us 4 girlfriends a chance to get together. I feel so blessed to still be so close with friends that I have had since I was 12 years old. All our children had the chance to get together as well. Playing with the beloved ball popper, having dinner together, racing cars on Wii & celebrating this boy's birthday. I think Jimmy's face says it all. All the kids felt so cool to be able to stay up so late. 10:30 to be exact which is 3 hours past their bedtimes. Our night started off with a potluck dinner & pictures of course. Me & Johnnie. Larisa & Robert. Kimi & John. Then once all the children went to bed it was time to pull out Rock Band. It was a fun time for all. Check out Larisa's hair in this photo of her dancing with her 8 month pregnant belly. And it makes adults do some crazy dancing (if you can call it that) but hey it was fun. So fun in fact & LOUD that it woke up Jimmy who wanted to join the party & have his 1st sip of beer. After toasting the new year we stayed up rocking it out until 2:30am which is crazy late for us. From our house to yours Happy New Year!
