Ringing in 2008

D9 helps Baby "tie one on" so they can help me in the kitchen for our New Years Eve party. We were so lucky to have my sister Loral, her dh Todd and their rascals over to ring in the new year with us. I made chicken cordon bleu, curried broccoli/cauliflower, baked potatoes, several appetizers and for dessert...lemon meringue pie and sour cream chocolate torte. Loral brought some delicious chicken wrap apps and yummy cheese fondue.

Baby's resolution...to try new things, starting with shrimp...

is that a stray leg???

hmmmm.....

maybe in 2009 she'll give it another try!

10 minutes before the countdown and she's just couldn't hang on any longer.

The kids had fun with the streamers and party horns (thanks Mom.)

The grown ups played a rousing game of trivial pursuit. Men vs. Women.

While Loral and I got off to a great start quickly earning several pies...


The guys thunk real hard and whooped our butts! Dangit! That's okay because I can post embarrassing photos on my blog like this...

That's Ken with a giant egg stuck on his noggin! My favorite photo of Ken. It took us awhile to get that off. Makes you think perhaps the guys won because Todd is the smart one. ;-)

Looks like you had a great time! We were all asleep long before midnight. Was just a regular night for us this year.
