Some New Year's Pictures

We really weren't sure what we'd do for New Year's this year given that I wasn't sure how I'd feel after my Dad's memorial service. Fairly last minute, we threw together a New Year's get together with friends and it was nice.

This picture is blatantly to try to show our cool dining room light fixture,
but I don't know that the picture does it justice.

Games!

A New Year's Tradition--I Love Lucy marathons

Another New Year's Tradition--homemade sushi!

Drool. Mark's sushi is THE BEST.

Quite a spread of food!

For some reason, I didn't take a picture of the sushi itself (and sashimi), so this is the best picture of the spread. Bonus--you get to see Rebecca try sushi for the first time.

Playing LOTS of games.

Getting ready to toast in 2009!

Almost time to ring it in!

Happy New Year! (And then we kissed). :)
It totally looks like we're having some sort of keg party with those cups and drinks, but I assure you it's sparkling Martinelli's (we just don't have that many fancy glasses). :P

Whatever..I know you probably "Spiked" the punch. I love that I do not feel one ounce of guilt eating anything I want from Christmas to New Years!!

I love the picture of the kids right before midnight! They look a little beat. I want to come party over there, if for nothing else but the food...okay, and the friendship! (I've never tried sushi, but I'm not against it. Just against spending large amounts of money on very small fish!)

Isaac stayed up this year and I thought it was going to be awful, but it ended up being fun having him there with us. But Dave and I forgot to kiss I think.

Lindsay, I love holiday eating, too. Yum!

Jessica, isn't that funny? Our kids are total night owls, but yeah, everyone looks tired. I guess it's because from Christmas to New Year's, we pretty much had a terrible schedule and mostly played lots of Wii! Quite happily, I might add. :P (And Jessica, Mark's sushi is THE BEST--please come visit!)

Emily, I'm so glad you guys had fun, too. I was tempted to do that cool Martha Stewart confetti thing from your blog. Such a cute idea!
