Bringing in the New Year with Friends




*for some reason the slideshow won't appear in the big box ~ click on VIEW ALL IMAGES it will take you to the pics*

We had another great New Year's Eve, with good friends. They just put a pool in, about 2 weeks ago - which was very convenient, since the temperatures soared to about 43C (109F) on New Years Eve. We started off the afternoon with some cool pool frolicking with the kids, and moved onto a BBQ dinner. The kids broke out the glowsticks just after the sun went down (around 9pm) and we had them tucked into bed by 930pm!!! The drinks were a flowing, and the behaviour got decidedly naughty as the night went on!!! The boys decided to "skinny-dip" in the New Year, and a midnight swim was on the cards. A few more drinks, and the girls turned in for the night around 2ish (I think!) and the boys followed suit about an hour or so later! It was a fun night, followed by more swimming New Years Day and a bacon and egg BBQ breakfast! Somehow I ended up with a huge hole in my swimsuit pants.... hmmm....

There were heaps of laughs ~ I hope the happiness and laughs continue right through 2008!

2008 WILL BE GREAT!

Yippee!!!. I get to be the first one to post on your blog in 2008 (there is a prize for that, right? Haha!!) It is still early here and I am the first up after a pretty low-key New Years so I was checking on my friends in blog-land. Sounds like you all had a fabulous New Years. I can't think of anything more enjoyable than warm weather on New Years eve (althogh it creeped up toward 60 here in SC). Heres to bringing our beautiful girls home in 2008!! Can't wait. Happy New Year!!
