Ringing in the new year...

We've been doing a lot of celebrating right here at home and it didn't end with Christmas. Since Craig's birthday is December 30, we had an excuse to party for 3 days straight into the new year. We started with a b-day dinner of prime rib for Dad and our next door neighbor, Elizabeth. (Eliz was turning 30 and Craig...well, wasn't.)
Don't you love the hats?

Dinner was fun...even Max was in a festive mood!
Max is rarely this silly

 The next night was New Year's Eve and we partied with our dear friends/neighbors, Rick and Deb. 
Almost midnight!

Hello 2011!

New Year's Day, we hosted an open house...it was supposed to run from 11am-3pm...but it ended around 6:30 in the evening. I guess that's a successful party...and it was nice showing off our newly renovated home.

We ate goodies and visited with friends and neighbors...and Madiyar coaxed our friend Vanessa to help him learn to play Beethoven on the piano. He loves Fur Elise and has dedicated himself to learning how to play it. He's getting pretty good.
With all this partying, New Year's dinner had to wait until January 2 so Mom had time to make the traditional turkey croquettes. It was another family event filled with good food and laughter...let's hope the rest of the year follows suit!
You know those Christmas cards I was hoping to get in the mail? Well, maybe next year...you're in our thoughts, faithful readers, even if the greeting didn't arrive by snail mail. From our house to yours...

Happy New Year!!!
