Happy New Year 2011

We made it!  We survived!  We did it!  No, I'm not referring to 2010.  I'm talking about the New Year's Eve Oyster Roast!  No one got sick (unless the college kids did later in the night--whosaidthat?).  About 30 people came to ring in the New Year with us and it was great!  There was the playing of the Wii (which included the gnashing of some teeth), college football (which also included some gnashing of the teeth), food, fellowship and fun!  Oh, and OYSTERS!  There were young, younger and youngest and FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Of course, the kids left to go party downtown.  The old geezers eight of us left from 11:00 until midnight were just glad we were able to stay awake long enough thrilled to ring in the NEW YEAR TOGETHER!

And they ate...

Some nice young men.  The two blondes live across the street and they are the sweetest boys I've ever met!

And they ate...

And they ate...

My dad, step-mom, and my BFF

And still they ate...

And ate...

And watched football... ( L to R: BFF's hubby, Breezy's best friend since middle school, BestSonInLawEVER

And talked...

And ate (we also had chili and She Crab soup inside)...

And bothered sisters...

And petted Tucker...

Can't wait to see how y'all brought in the New Year!
