Ringing in the new year

We spent New Year’s Eve 2008 in the same way we have celebrated it for thirty years-with just a few friends.  I have never thought I wanted to get in a large crowd or hang out in a hotel party with hundreds of strangers.  So we do what we’ve always done.  Just a small group of us  have dinner together, try real hard to look alert at the midnight hour, pop the top on champagne, hug and kiss each other and promise we’ll do it again next year.  The beauty of this type of excitement is …..we can party like this until we’re in the nursing home!

Here’s a couple of pics from Wed. night at Carrabas


and of course, our New Year’s Eve gathering is rated G–for grandchildren!

This is Martha’s precious angel, Ava.


…and Charlie blowing raspberries on  Ava’s knee. 

(I know…this is too exciting for most people.  We can plan your next New Year’s Eve event for only a small fee….) 


This was New Year’s Eve 2001- a little more excitement!

This is a short montage of pictures made of OLD FRIENDS

pictures are between 1979-2000. We were lookin’ so good…
