Ringing in the New Year.

We had New Years plans with the Bott's this year.
When Mabel came down with a tummy ache,
we decided to take a rain-check.

Without the prospect of Rachel's slow-cooked apricot ribs--
we ordered take-out.

Violet had been asleep,
but woke up suspecting there was a party going on--
and boy was she right.

We headed upstairs to ring in the New Year with Shelly,
Cristy, and Scott.
 Uncle Scott and Pearl helped Violet work on her New Year's resolution: 
Learning how to walk. 
Midnight came.
Cheers were said,
juice was had,
and pots were banged on.

 And as always,
the old year ended / new year began with a kiss.

Stacey, these pictures are fantastic - that one of you and your girls all grinning together is so darn cute!!!

I hope you are feeling better! At least the sun is out today~~~I can't believe it is already the
13th day of 2011~!
