New Years Eve 2007

This year we hosted our 2nd annual New Years Eve Family Event. 2007 went out with a bang fo-sho! But at least the carpet didn't get ruined this year! We opened our home to about 12+ families. Some brought children and some had sitters. We enjoyed great appetizers and beverages for all ages! Malcolm provided us with a fantastic fireworks show and the kids LOVED playing in the yard with the sparklers and glow sticks. Some families lasted longer than others but I must say...several were able to hang in there for quite some time ( even a couple of pregnant girls)!!! I was quite impressed!

L to R, B to F: Fulton, Eliza, Mason, Hawkins, Will, Joseph, Newton, Emma, Susanna, Madison, Liddy, Robert, & Sam
We had a few bail early due to premature meltdowns. But these are the munchkins that managed to hang until the wee hours.

Leigh got a front row seat with some really cute boys for the fireworks show
Fu's first sparkler!! (Fire code violation #1-Children wearing Polyester costumes while playing with fire. HMMMM)

Is that what I think it is???? You have got to be kidding me! Have our parties gotten that lame??

Wishing you all a happy and prosperous 2008!
