Ringing in 2011

We rang in 2011 with a family hoorah.

The hooligans had a blast.xmas 2010 671 copy xmas 2010 673 copy

So did the adults. Even the old guys. xmas 2010 674 copy xmas 2010 676 copy

Even though some people ended up nude, all the rest of us kept our clothes on. xmas 2010 678 copy

Topics like vasectomies, circumcision, labor, and potty training were all covered; thoroughly.

We laughed and laughed and laughed. xmas 2010 680 copy xmas 2010 681 copy xmas 2010 704xmas 2010 684 copy xmas 2010 728 copy

The kids only entered the kitchen for drinks or dessert.

Especially this one, with a sweet tooth.xmas 2010 692 copy xmas 2010 693

The bigger ones just played and wrestled and played and ran and played and played.xmas 2010 694 copy xmas 2010 698 xmas 2010 699 

I was told I smile the same in every picture. Like this:xmas 2010 712 copy

But this is what a I really look like when I’m laughing. Mr. Dunbar hates the camera. xmas 2010 711 copy

We rang in a New York New Year’s with some good ol’ Martinelli’s.

Grape flavored even.   xmas 2010 714 copy 

Plenty of toasts were made. Along with more laughs.

Do you remember using these red cups in college? Yeah, well the contents are just a bit different now. No headache in the morning. xmas 2010 716 copy xmas 2010 719 copy xmas 2010 721 copy xmas 2010 722 xmas 2010 725 copy

Love "family" New Year parties! Looks like everyone had a great time. Just think, next year you'll have another little one with you :)

Sounds similar to our night. Although we did the mock New Years at around 9 p.m. with the kids and let them blow their noisemakers and go crazy before heading home and putting them to bed. We were all sound asleep by 10:00. And that's the way I like it!

Looks like you had a fun time. Our New Year's was spent at Kaiser with G. :( I wish I were partying, or shoving sticks in my eyes from the process. Happy 2011!
