I love parties.  I love throwing them, planning them, setting them up and then of course, enjoying them.  I love watching my friends and family gather, eating yummy food, laughing, chatting, and creating some hilarious memories.  Last night, I was lucky enough to do just that.  Some new friends & friendly neighbors gathered at our place to ring in the new year together.  It was a fantastic evening.  FAN-TASTIC.  Seriously, I can't remember the last time I laughed so much.

There were some seriously delish dishes.  Pozole, sauerkraut and pork, Mexican corn dip, and some heavenly desserts.   I prepared the snacks for the kids...fruit skewers, veggie cups & pinwheels.

Most the night was spent sitting around the fire pit in the back yard.  Fun conversation, good beer, and s'mores.  What more do you need?

And how could I forget...the photobooth. (which ended up looking more like a prom backdrop)  I knew my guests would enjoy this, because let me tell you...these girls (and now their husbands) crack. me. up! 

Silver tablecloth on the wall + camera on tripod + easy made props + brand-spanking new camera remote = PHOTOBOOTH FUN!!

aaaahhh...tear.  Cracks me up everytime.  

I hope you all had as good of a new year as I did.  I can't believe my stellar luck in making yet another group of incredible friends.  

Happy New Year to all of you!!
