We had a Ball

There is something broken with my Bloggy self.
I went to a fun New Years/Birthday Party last night
and did not take the camera!
 
Oh dear!
 
Sadly, Warren and several others had their cameras and
captured much silliness.
 
The event was actually a birthday party for our dear
friend Lindsay Rabe from Creekside Cottage.
She turns 21 today.
Conveniently it happened that we could celebrate
the New Year's arrival at the same time.
 
We had a ball.
Literally.
 
An English Country Ball.
 
Some danced every dance
while some of us
did just one or two.
 
I chose to do one
but it went on forever since
the music had been tampered with
to extend the "fun".
 
Well, it was funny to see everyone's faces
as the song began again and again.
 
Mikey came to the party and was
cracking all of us up with his
shenanigans.
He is such the middle child.
 
I am going to try to be a better
blogger this year.
It's so hard with all of the time I
have to spend promoting my Etsy shop
that I tend to want to be off the computer when
I'm not busy with that but I do miss
seeing what everyone is up to and the fun
of planning, shooting and posting
deliberate posts.
 
I have a major project coming up that I
intend to document and share.
Very exciting....
to me, anyway.
 
Today I will make pork and saurkraut
to get this New Year off on the right foot.
Tradition!
 
We plan to see a movie
and probably head to bed early to make up
for the missed sleep from last night.
It was after 2am when we finally headed to bed.
Most years I work hard
just to make it to the ball drop
and then head straight to bed.
 
But, this year held new adventures.
Some I am sure to regret.
Maybe as soon as Sunday morning if certain
people decide to share their video.
 
Happy Birthday, Lindsay.
Thanks for the fun.

Oh I'd love to be a fly on the wall Sunday morning! I saw a very cute picture of you at Creekside Cottage earlier and saw your lovely daughter and all the beautiful gals in their finery. What a lovely reason to celebrate all the way around! (I have missed you, Becky. But you've done a great job blogging right along with all the other things you must tend to. You have, no doubt, chosen the wiser part.)

I have such a hard time remembering to take my camera along any more, too! I saw Deanna's pics, though, and it looks like it was a great time.

Looking forward to seeing your mysterious new project. C'mon, give us a hint! ;-)

Happy New Year to you and yours from all of us!
