Happy New Year!

Good morning, it is Sunday.

2011 is officially in the books and 2012 is the date to remember for now.  I am sure I will still find myself writing 1992 and stuff like that when in a hurry...but it really is 2012 now.  We ended up at a party thrown by Maren's cousin.  We had a great time as did all the kids.  We got home around 10:45 pm, just in time to watch a recorded Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper's New Years, then switch over at 11:45 pm to see the fireworks on the Space Needle.  Strangely Kind 5 didn't do an actual countdown which was kind of strange, but we figured it out.
Here the kids are "clinking" in the new year at our house.  Yeah, sparkling apple cider!
 Back at Annie and Kraig's party we played cool board game.  I don't know the name, but it was fun.  Maybe you recognize it?  Preston hung out with us adults and got along splendidly.
 Back in the living room the kids were having their own fun goofing off and playing x-box.
Here is Maren and her cousin Annie.  There was great food, great desserts, and fun was had by all...last year:)

Happy New Year!  See you tomorrow.

Preston's officially an adult! I've never seen that game, but it sure looks like fun - I bet dad knows what it's called.

Happy New Year Julian to you and your family. I've just caught up with the last several posts. How old are your kids ? Do you indeed have two teenage boys who, along with you, all wear the same shoe size ?!?! Yikes ! I see they are making their own plans now leaving you with more time for golfing and changing shocks……here's to more golfing and spending time watching football in the new year + of course, a happy and healthy new
