New Year's Weekend 2008

Okay, okay, I know I'm a little behind times JUST NOW posting pics from New Year's, but I promise I'm slowly catching up and will be up-to-date very soon! :) We had a wonderful 3-day celebration with our friends for New Year's; beginning with a home-cooked dinner prepared by Beth & Jana's moms at Beth's parents house in Murfreesboro, our traditional New Year's Eve get-together that was at Cory & Andrea's this year (we take turns each year), and a downhome country breakfast at Cracker Barrel on New Year's Day. I LOVE spending time with these people and am always sad when the time is over!! We try to get together as much as we can, but it's hard lately to get all of us together with Seth & Carrie in Memphis, Beth in Texas, John & Jamie in Morganfield, KY, and the rest of us spread out all over Nashville! We're now all slowly growing our families, as Seth & Colt's baby boy, Colt, is about to turn one; Mason on the way for Marc & me; and a little one on the way for John & Jamie due in September!!! New Year's next year definitely won't be the same! :)

Friends' Dinner at the Herndons'

Colt hamming it up for the camera! He was giggling and laughin' and making the cutest little noises ever!!
New Year's Eve at the Brostos'

The boys were into a serious game of Rock Band! Johnathan got it for Christmas and Marc was especially the most excited to try it out!! They were playing it the entire night and ignoring everything us girls were saying! Thank you! So us girlies just went into the kitchen and sat on the floor and exchanged gifts. Random.

My favorite girls in the world!!

I don't even know... But Johnathan says that this picture makes him the happiest!! Should I be in the Guiness Book of World Records for being able to do an upside down smile? Thank you. Did I spell that correctly or did I make it look like the name of a certain Irish beverage??

Wait, Andrea's supposed to be making a silly face, too, but it's not even that silly!!

The boys wanted in on the action!! Yeah, this is really how we spend our New Years'!! :)

The next few pics are some of each little family that was represented and where they live... I grew up with Andrea; Marc grew up with John; and Marc & Andrea went to Lipscomb Univ. with Carrie, Seth, Johnathan, and Brooke. AND, Marc and I went to church with Jamie in Louisville, knew she and John were meant to be the second we started talking to her, and now they're married!!! How about that?????? These people are our closest friends!!

Preparing for our traditional New Year's pic... we've taken one like this every single year since 1999!! Now we're running out of fingers to do the numbers with, so we got a little help from Andrea to make the 8!!

Marc having fun with Colt!!

Dead tired bright & early New Year's Day after our yummy breakfast! Well, it was actually 11 am or something. Everyone was about to get on the road to drive back to their homes. Time to go back to the real world of work and waking up early!! Yuck!!

Love you all!! Can't wait for the MANY more New Years' memories to come!!
