Way late, but we had an awesome New Year's & a lot of great people to spend it with. We've hosted a New Year's party every year for the last 5 or 6 years [well except for last year, we had a party, but not for us .. .. it was for the kids]!

Justin getting ready for everyone to arrive!  Making sure 'it' all works!
Lots & lots of food

Even more food!
& liquor
Jello shots!! Mmm

My Cuz & I
Silly girl!  The kids only got to hang out for a little while & then it was upstairs, movie kinda night!

Michael Jackson [Dance] on the Wii!  All the cool kids were doing it!

Good times, good times!!

Ready or not ... it's here!!

Alliyah's 8th birthday that is!  I'm never ready for the kids to be another year older, but Alliyah's birthday this year was harder then usual.  She had her first all friend's party!  It hit me as we were driving her & her friends to John's Inc. Pizza ... all the girls were sitting in the back singing, giggling, & screaming!  I realized just how old she was getting!  It's so amazing how fast time flies!  Although it's hard watching her grow so quickly, I am so excited to see what her future holds! 

She had 9 girls to help celebrate her birthday.  All the girls met at our house & then we drove to John's Inc. Pizza & then back home for a slumber party!

Arriving @ our destination

We had some starving girlies on our hands ... off to eat!

 Then it was off to ride some rides & play games

& back home for a little more celebrating

 Being silly while her friends sing happy birthday to her

Her party was the Saturday before her birthday.  The day of her birthday we had family over for cake & ice cream!  Lucky lil girlie!!
