Catching up: New Years Eve

Okay, this is my last "Catching up" post - I promise! =)

Mom and Dad St.Hilaire came down to visit for a few days and we got to spend New Years Eve with them. First, we went out to dinner with Mom, Dad and the Herrings.

John just didn't know what to order, everything looked so good! =P

Happy baby James!

Best buds!

Then we came home and played some Pictionary, it was fun - but since Andrew and I can read each other's minds, it can be challenging for other players. ;)

We weren't planning on staying up until midnight because we were all pretty tired, but before we knew it, it was 11:30pm. So we thought, "What the heck. Let's stay up!" John kept waking up and I kept soothing him back to sleep. But he woke up again around 11:50pm, so I just got him up so he could bring in the new year with all of us. Since we don't have cable, we didn't watch the celebrations on TV. We just sat in our living room. When midnight rolled around, we heard some fireworks outside. We went to the window to watch a the fireworks, drank some champagne, and talked about the highlights over the past decade - A LOT has changed!

Thanks for coming down to visit us, Mom and Dad! We always love spending time with you!

(Funny detail about this picture - we were trying to get John to look at the camera by waving a hat, thus his gaze is slightly above the camera... and so is Grandma's!! Apparently this trick works for babies and grown-ups!)
