This New Years Eve we knew was going to be a different one now that Miss Hannah is in our lives. We planned to spend the evening with Tracy, Ryan and the girls at their house having a low key NYE and it ended up being a little get together with a few of their old neighbors and their kids. We had a blast and stayed up WAAAAY too late (like, went to bed an hour before I usually wake up for work late) considering we had three girls who wake up early no matter if it's New Years Day or not!
Sweet baby girl dressed in her cute NYE day outfit. Seriously, how cute is she?!
This picture is proof that we still have a dog! Ha! Austin making some yummy food while B waits for food to drop.
Me with my sweet chubby cheeks little girl
Tracy and her girls. It's the best pic I could get, a two year old and a five month old baby don't always cooperate. They always look cute though. :)
Ryan wearing his daughters hat. This was early in the night...
Family of three, our last pic together of 2011!
Leah wanted to wear all of her hairbows!
Tara and Tracy
This makes me laugh. Sometimes with Leah you have to, how should I say this...."persuade" her that you need a hug. If you tell her you're sad about something, she will always come give you a hug because she is sweet and doesn't want you to be sad. We may or may not take advantage of that sweetness.... Here I am "possibly" telling her that I'm sad. Don't judge. ;)
I must have been giving an Academy Award winning performance because B came to give me some loving too. Ha!
I picked her up to give her a big hug for being such a sweet girl and she wanted to pretend she was asleep. Silly Leah.
After all the little ones went to sleep we brought out the fireworks. Here's Matt and Ryan getting excited about what was, according to Ryan, the "best $50 he's ever spent".
These boys crack me up. Austin looks like a pyro with the lighter and Ryan just keeps yelling stuff at us in excitement.
Ryan finally got Tracy to go out there to light up one of the fireworks and I told her to smile. She posed. :)
I'll agree with Ryan, it was a great fireworks show!
And that's about where the pictures end for that evening.... There were several other people there and lots of other activities and laughs being had but I forgot to take pics of all that. Oops!
The next day Hannah decided to sit up on her own!! She's such a big girl.
The guys "watching" football.
We had lots of great food and just hung out eating pretty much all day ringing in the new year. 2011 was the best year of my life and I can't wait to see what 2012 brings! Happy New Year!
