Happy New Year....eve

We celebrated with the Calls.....food, games and family!
Wayne won the spoon game.  Nelson and Wayne  are friends even with rival sweatshirts.  Grandpa Lyle and Grandma Sheri with their bonus Grandkids...Laila and Preston
We love doing fire works before Midnight.  Most years it's snowy and we can't see across the street-- this year was just chilly.  Laila was loving the New Years Hat.  She was singing and dancing with it.
Marcie is a good sport and always gets confetti guns and streamers for the count down to midnight.  It's messy, but fun.
I, of course, torture my family with "What a year it's Been!"   2011 type of activities.
