Happy New Year!

Our annual gigantic New Year's Eve blowout bash is over - 5 families, 19 people over for a grand total of about 10 hours. Les came by at 3 to start the rib smoker, the rest of his family arrived at 5 and everyone else filtered in by 7:30.

We ate, and ate, and ate...and, oh, ate some more. Then played "Things" and "Cranium" till ringing in the New Year at midnight.

There's something surreal about watching 8 kids running around the front yard fighting lightsabers and plastic swords, screaming at the tops of their lungs at 12:30 am in a warm January. :) Welcome to East Tennessee in the winter!

One of the kids is spending the night with BrainyBoy. All is well.

I hope 2007 is a blessing to all of you and your families.


  1. Happy New Year!!!!! Hope it's a great one!!

  2. I LOVE playing Cranium. It is so much fun. Certainly not a game for timid partygoers!

    It sounds like you had a great time. Welcome to 2007!
