New Years

We had a New Years party this year. There were lots of, well, toddlers:

It seems that we are, indeed, in the toddler phase of life and so are all our friends. So because we figured none of them were going to a New Years party any more than we were, we decided to have a toddler-friendly party. What does that mean, you might ask? Well, really it means that our party lasted from about 5-8pm. And then we all went our separate ways so the kiddos could get to bed.

Still, Ellie thought it was great. She thought the party was just so she could play with her friends, and she and Zack ran and shrieked. It was mass chaos, but it was fun. The menfolk stood around and discussed geekery, and the womenfolk caught up on life. And the kids... well, the kids made a giant mess by pulling out *all* off Ellie's toys. But it was fun.

And this, well, this is the last picture that was taken of us in the year 2007:

After we put Ellie in bed we listened to the crazy neighbors shooting off fireworks. And we listened in disgust as the debris rolled down our roof because our neighbor was shooting them off directly over our house from his driveway. Ergh. But the house did not catch fire, so I guess all is well. We watched a movie and saw in the new year before dozing off to sleep for the first time in 2008.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year to you too! You have such a great picture of you two! Your camera takes such great pictures. Hope you have a great weekend! Oh, I found a navy blue jacket I think it is yours. Maybe from the maternity clothes? Let me know if it is yours. (Well, I don't know who else it could belong to) :)
