We arrived around 2pm and got settled in for a weekend of FUN! The afternoon was spent enjoying drinks and plenty of appetizers, playtime in the basement, catching up with Alevia's parents and feeding the little ones. After the kid's dinner, they all played for awhile until it was time for the real party to start! :)
It was finally bedtime! A parent's favorite time of day. :) We each set off to put the kids to bed, but not before Mr. Colwell took a few group shots for us.
Pre-dinner photo op:
We ate smoked turkey, roasted brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce until we were stuffed. It was delish! It didn't even feel like 10pm. We cleaned up and put together the breakfast casseroles for the next morning, before settling on the couch to play some charades and watch the cheesy New Year's specials on tv.
We all made it to midnight before calling it a night. Such a fun day and evening with life-long friends. Couldn't ask for a better way to start the New Year.
