What are you doing New Year's Eve?

Us? We had
Thanksgiving Part II.
A delicious turkey dinner
complete with sweet potatoes,
mashed potatoes, stuffing,
and pumpkin pie.
Mmmm, it doesn't get much better.
All our kids got re-acquainted
with their cousins.

And my siblings and I
(all of them!)
got re-acquainted, too.
It was wonderful!
Then, we got to have
Christmas Part II.

We exchanged gifts
that we had for each other,
since we weren't together
at Christmas.

New Year's Eve
wouldn't be complete
without some
good old-fashioned
rocking out.
So, that's what we did.

It was a blast.

Some hidden talent was discovered.

We toasted the New Year with some bubbly,
then hit the hay around 12:30.
