Happy New Year!

Last night, on New Years Eve, we had a fun family gathering (with a couple friends) at my parents house. We played games, laughed at funny stories and ate tasty food. Jim even got in on the cooking. I guess he's learned a few things since moving to Minnesota. Everybody stayed awake long enough to greet the new year, even Joshua. I guess he wanted to see what the big deal was. He finally fell asleep very shortly after the clock hit 12:00. Then the family all gathered around for a few photos before Jim goes back to Minnesota. Somehow the group just keeps growing! Even Ellie (the dog) got in for the shot. So, from my family to yours, have a Happy New Year! (I'm still getting used to my new camera and that's why the photo is blurry. Practice makes perfect.)

To introduce you to the fam, from left to right and top to bottom: Jim, Nate, Ellie, Mom, myself, Adam, Hannah, Leta, Dad, Ben, Joe, Josh and Dave.
