Happy New Year!

And whew!
I hope your new year celebrating went well. We had a blast. I think this new years eve ranks as one of the best yet, even though we didn't get to bed until three in the morning. There were 23 of us spending the night in my sisters house. Yeah. Think major chaos and you have it. Oh and my sisters macaw was along as well - I know I've told you about him. Three dogs and lots of craziness. We played games, laughed, talked, and ended up down at the creek around a big campfire at the stroke of midnight. I'm still processing how I feel about the campfire. It was cool, dark, cold, stressful, and one of those things we'll never forget. I'm not sure if any of my pictures will turn out.
This morning, after breakfast, cleaning up, and discussing the snoring going on in the house during the night, we headed to the movies to see the new National Treasure with 25 people. Very cool movie.
Now...whew...we're home - completely done with the insane craziness that's consumed us for the past few weeks. Life back to normal. Thank goodness. And I'm ready to crash for the night already.
There you have it.

How on earth do you get 25 people out of the house on time???

I'm not really sure how we did it. Not all that stayed at my sisters went to the movies - we lost 3 and gained 5 from different places. I think it's that this is our vacation group, so everyone is used to timing things so we can all depart on time and together. It's chaos no matter what though! :)
