New Year's Eve

 We hosted our annual New Year's Eve party this year.  We had so much fun.  I am so thankful for fun and laid back friends!  We had a Just Dance party, ate seriously yummy food, and played lots of cards.  Oh, I just have to mention that Jake was scum most of the night and I was PRESIDENT!!  That never happens, I'm usually scum.  So thank you Jake!!
 Jodi and Delayne totally worked it!
 The Carrs took lots of pictures.
 These two Elizas are just as cute as they can be.
 Shelby was probably the Just Dance winner.  She was so good!  It was really fun to watch her.
 Some of the boys were less enthusiastic about all of the dancing.  They went into the back room and watched Kung Fu Panda.
 Sonny and Jodi, so cute...
 Thank goodness Doug wore camo! 
 Brett did not dance...
 John played so much and fell asleep very late.  He was one cranky dude the next day.
Here is my attempt at a photo of us playing cards.  It makes me really happy to have a full table.  Thanks to everyone that came a played. 

Uncle Steve and Kayla

My brother and his fiance came from Texas by way of Minnesota to come and visit us for the holidays.  We had so much fun that I took hardly any pictures!  They were very kind to the kids and they all played and had a great time.  Uncle Steve even gave us girls the morning off and took all the boys to the movies by himself!  The boys thought that was terrific!!
Spencer, Steve, Travis, Kayla, Janel, and I all got together and went to the movies.  It was a super fun date night.  I think the real high point was when Travis fell asleep during the movie and started snoring!  We were laughing so hard that we cried.  Good times. 
We also took Mac to walk from Grandma's house to Bidwell Jr.  He will get to do that walk alot this year once he starts seventh grade.  John rode his little bike the whole way.  I'm so glad Steve and Kayla could come for a visit.
