New Year's Eve

The party was held at Kevin and Becky's this year. We had so much fun.

There was a violent Nerf gun game. I'm surprised we didn't end with crying kids because some of those suckers hurt! Oh but it was fun, I don't think I've laughed that hard in a long time. Poor Becky's clock took the brunt of things.

Another event of the night was a serious game of Bingo, which involved prizes. (I won a new Williams and Senoma spatula!)

Kate's winnings from the Bingo game: costume jewelry and boy oh boy did she feel pretty.

There was also a ping-pong tournament on the ping-pong table Becky and Kevin got for Christmas. Guess who won? Yep, Becky for the girls and Kevin for the boys. Sounds a little rigged to me. ;P

The kids celebrated by counting down with New York (10 pm for us),

and a toast to ring in the new year!

My mother and father-in-law.

Jarom and I and (surprise!) sleepy little Carter.

It's so fun to see that picture of your girls together. I was looking at them and, I know I've said this before, but Halle is all Manwaring and Alyssa is all Smith. I can see Jarom's sisters in Halle and the girls of your family (including your mom) in Alyssa. So fun!

I was looking at your blog from the bottom up and just saw the picture of you, Jarom and sleepy Carter. What a great shot of you! You look so beautiful! :)

PS Sorry I missed your birthday. I'm a slacker! I hope you had a great day!
