New Years Eve 2008

For the past 3 years I have gotten together with my friend Lyndsey and her friend Amber (OK, so she's my friend now too). It's nice because we live close and we all have kids so it's pretty low-key and relaxing. Each year we switch houses and this year it was Lyndsey's turn. Sadly, she got food poisoning and it was almost cancelled. Luckily she recovered pretty quickly, poor thing, and we went on with our festivities.

This year Lyndsey's friend Stephanie (who I have also adopted as my friend) and her husband Brian joined us. Stephanie and Brian live out of town but are in town for an extended stay and it was fun to have them with us.
The kids mainly played in the basement and the adults sat upstairs, ate, talked and laughed. It really was a good time and I look forward to next year!

Friends...old and new: Amber, Stephanie and Lyndsey!

Josh (Lyndsey's husband), Rondell (he's mine!) and Brian (Stephanie's husband). Don't they look SO excited about me taking their picture? Group hug...NO!

Caleb got such a kick out of sliding down Lyndsey's stairs!

It looks like you had a great time. :) I'm *very* much about low-key, too. Happy New Year to you and your family!

We like to do a low-key New Year's Eve, too. Sounds like you had a great time!
