Having a best friend that has three kids and a big fun family always makes that decision easier for us. :)
Just like last year, we rang in the new year as a family of five with some of our favorites: The Brown's, The Gibson's and The Herman's.
We did it up "Tara style" this year. She got two rooms at the Embassy. One for the adults and one for the kids. We got all dressed up and headed there before dinner for appetizers and pictures.
We headed to a late dinner at Copeland's. Owen was so exhausted by the time we got there that he needed a little power nap. After about 20 minutes, he was up and ready to go again!
After dinner, we went back to the hotel and got into our comfy PJs to ring in the new year.
We had a GREAT start to 2012 and cannot wait to see what is in store for our family this year! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
