My first post of 2011! :) We had a great New Year's Eve this year. We decided to have people over at our house this year and just play games. There were 7 adults, 2 teens, 5 kids, and 3 dogs! :) It was a blast. I remembered that we had leftover sparklers from 4th of July and the kids really enjoyed doing those. It was a good night with friends and family. I was even impressed that my kids both made it up till midnight this year. 2010 was the first year in our marraige that Travis didn't have to leave for more than 24 hours the entire year! I hope 2011 is just as great. :) Happy New Year everyone!

HEre are a few pics. I am so great at taking pics of the kids but I'm TERRIBLE at taking pics of adults. Maybe I should have made that my New Year's Resolution...

Watching a movie and eating popcorn! Ya ALL boys. I went from Germany where there never seemed to be any boys to here where all my friends seem to have are boys. Alexis and Ryan definitely don't seem to mind!

Wylie and Alexis. Super cute.
Ryan and Melanie (the teenage girls are our next door neighbors. They are SOOO sweet and they love my girls and my girls love them!)
Lexi with her sparkler.
Almost all the kids. Nicolai was over all the pics! This was right after midnight so they were all tired but they were great!!!

Wow! I'm impressed that they stayed up that late as well. We woke Annika up at midnight, and after about a minute she asked to go back to bed. I don't think she would have made it. It looks like you guys had a wonderful time. I'm glad you have so many great friends to celebrate with! I'm glad you posted pictures so I can celebrate with you virtually. Happy New Year!

I am all for there being a few more boys. I think boys are a good thing. I am trying to help Cristine out by bringing another boy into the fab four. It looks like you guys had a great time. Give the girls high fives for me for staying up till midnight. Lexi made it too but that is not very amazing, she could probably stay up all night.
