Happy New Year!!


We had a wonderful New Year's Eve partying it up with lots of friends. We hosted a party that worked out great for all of us with young children. We feasted on lots of yummy pick-up appetizers and desserts and at 7PM our time (midnight GMT) we rang in the New Year with hats, tiaras, horns, blow-outs, leis, Champagne and even sparkling raspberry grape juice. It was great fun and by the time everyone left at 8PM and I got Maisie in bed, it felt like midnight and I didn't even have to stay up the additional four hours as we had partied our hearts out and rang in the new year.

Here's wishing everyone a happy, healthy and wonderful new year.

Thanks to Deb for the majority of the piccies.


  1. Thanks for having us! We had a wonderful time and were in bed right when we got home! I like celebrating at 7:00!

  2. Lisa, what a great idea! I may have to borrow that one for next year.
    I hope you have a wonderful 2008!

  3. Happy New Year Lisa!! What a great party and I love how you celebrated early so that everyone could enjoy it. I did that a few years ago with friends and their little ones and it was great!

    Looking forward to seeing you sometime in 2008!

    Thanks SO much for sharing those pics. Seeing the kiddos really helps boost the spirits during the wait.

    I am amazed at how long Maise's hair is getting. She is growing so quickly.

    We enjoyed the stomach flu and were both in bed sipping on Pedialyte.

    Happy New Year.

  18. This was such a great idea! We had a great time, especially watching the little ones play and celebrate. It was nice to finally meet Miss Chani, and Maisie was too funny with her water/wine glass. Hope you haven't had any major floods around the water dispenser now that she's figured it out!
