New Years Eve

On Wednesday night we met some friends at the Brawners' house for dinner and an early New Year's celebration. With only 7 familes there were 16 kids (and one still in the cooker! :))! The kids outnumbered the adults and it was wild! Of course the group picture was the usual challenge but I'm so glad we took a moment to take it! Thanks everyone!

After the kids were good and "sugared" up from the fabulous cupcakes that Meredith and Will made...

...we had a mock celebration (at the late hour of 7:30pm!) highlighted by a balloon drop for the kids! It was so cool and the kids absolutely LOVED it!

My little P&S camera has been known to give me fits on occasion but I was unusually pleased with the cool focus on these two shots of the kids that night.

We left the Brawners' house about 8:00pm and headed to Prattville for a quick visit with DaLee and some friends. DaLee had cooked a wonderful dinner of crab cakes and homemade cheesecake. She was so sweet to give us a plate for Thursday. The cheesecake was yummy yummy!! I am not ashamed to say we were home and all in bed by 10:00pm only to be woken by fireworks outside at 12:00!

HAPPY NEW YEAR from the Mercer Family!!

The rest of the pictures are HERE.
