How I Spent NYE

In a major blog fail, I forgot to actually recap NYE.  To be perfectly honest, I forgot that I had taken any pictures of it.   Well, here are the birthday kids (my siblings) blowing out the candles.  I mean, they were the real reason for this shindig, not that whole end of a decade thing...
Here's Lu and her Mini-Me.  They are so much alike it's actually kind of scary. (Notice the matching, without completely matching outfits.)
After the birthday goodness, it was time for a little gymnastics show...
Showing us how it's done...
Not about to let her big brother show her up...
But some people have even cooler "circus tricks" to share.
I know you are jealous of how much fun we had!   I actually did have a great night, especially when I sat and talked with my parents and aunt and uncle right up until midnight.  We didn't manage to solve all the world's problems, but I think we made some serious progress!  It was a nice, low-key way to ring in 2011!


  1. Well it looks like fun.... Sometimes new year is over rated anyway. Happy 2011!

  2. I think the whole NYE party thing is kind of overrated. I was perfectly happy with the way things happened! Happy 2011 to you too!

  3. This does look like fun. What fun is NYE without a little gymnastics!?

  4. I am not up to speed, who are the people here and how do they relate to you?
    I'm going to confess that I went to bed before the New Year arrived. I made it 'til 10:30 and then succumbed. NExt Year I'll be well enough to make it all the way!

  5. Katie, I am so glad you stopped by! (Love the new look of your blog, btw!) I probably had 15 or 20 pictures of the flips and handstands. They were having a great time showing off. (They are some really funny kids!)

  6. Missy Jill, the kids belong to my first cousin. The little girl (Mini-Lu)and my sister, Lu, are so much alike you'd think they were mother and daughter (or at least sisters). It's hilarious.

    The boys are Mini-Lu's older brothers and are both a piece of work! I made it to midnight, but only because I was back to my summer sleep schedule for break!

  7. Ooh, I wish I had a mini-me, now I'm envious!

  8. Megan, I'm not sure the world is ready for another person as fabulously quirky as you! Originality is what makes you so awesome!
