New Years, the Extended Version

Our New Years Eve was very good this year.  We were in Fayetteville visiting the Sweatlands again, and that morning, our friends, Mark and Carrie Davis (also from our Hawaii gang) came to visit for a few hours on their way back to their home in VA.  We haven't seen Mark in over 2 years and Carrie I haven't seen since last New Years.  It was good to catch up as always.  After they left, Mike and I went neighborhood shopping preparing for our big move in a few months.  Then that night Hillary invited some of her friends over to have dinner out and play games while our kiddos slept soundly in their beds.

Heres some pics of our day.

 After the kiddies were in bed we played games, including our favorite--Gimp.  The Gimp hat this year was Jack's toboggan.  Mike rocked it. 
like i said, we had a good day and we did stay up till midnight--watched the ball drop live on the computer and even had some champagne, all in our PJ's.  Low-Key and Fun. 

 Woody on the other hand, his night must have been a little more rough...he wasn't looking so good this morning.
