Remember: New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions. - Mark Twain
Franklyn looks worried! It's 5 seconds until 2018 and all is ready!
We all made another year!!!
Pete and Lisa... A handsome couple!
Michele checks in on the boys (Nick 18 is watching Theo 11)
(They are so busy gaming they were Not interested in midnight)
Sue is busy making sure all is well
(Once a mom... always a mom)
A veritable blizzard of confetti!
Down goes the champagne!
"Here's to another GREAT year"
"Pass the glass this way big boy!"
Bernie gets a hug and a smooch!
Bernie is ready for another!
"Bernie turns 97 this year!"
Michele is beautiful (Mom and Dad and NOT biased a bit)
Lucky captures the moment!
A serious toast let by our head toaster... Bill
"I don't feel a year older!"
Daughters are amazing things... They bring fun, joy, heartaches, headaches, and a feeling of pride!
We are lucky to have our "daughters" around us at this time of year.
We miss Colleen who is in New Hampshire (freezing tonight) and Jeanette who is away.
We are also missing Joe and Amy (and the boys) who just returned form several days in the desert and were busy unpacking and returning to normal. Next year for sure!
The gentlemen join the fray!
From the heart of a Lady!
Pete has that "Guess what I did, and didn't get caught" smile
"Good night and drive safely!!!"
One more call to "The Boys"... Make sure Theo is watching Nick!
Nita looks like she just stepped out of a horse drawn carriage!
Bernie has found another "victim" (Many of the partners of our band
were out guests this evening so Bernie had "the pick of the litter")
Go Michele Go!
The band is having a ball also!
Robin is planning ahead...
