Old Friends, New Year!

Why are these people so happy????

Is it A/because they're ringing in a new year surrounded by their closest friends??

Or, is it B/because two of their friends took care of EVERY detail to make certain that 2010 ended -and 2011 began- with perfect flair?

Since I was there, I will tell you: A would not have happened with out B.

Kim and Dave = B.

"Give us $50," they asked of each couple (FAR less than any one would have spent had they taken NYE out on the town), "and we'll take care of the rest!"

And, take care they did!

Delicious food, flowing drinks, sweet desserts, overnight accomodations, clever decor and favors galore - right down to good-night bags with Advil and breakfast the next morning! I might have butted in and demanded to print some napkins, but like a gracious host, Kim accomdated such an outlandish request.

While waiting on the new year we ate, talked, reminisced 2010 and made plans to make 2011 just as{or even more!} fun! Then, in an idea far more dumb than amusing, Mr. W brought along some bootlegged fireworks (illegal in Maryland) he'd purchased a while back in Tennessee that he'd hoped would be spectacular after-midnight entertainment. Unlike our $50 NYE investment, the fireworks show was not exactly bang for our bucks...

Here are some fun photos of the party -

Happy New Year!

What an awesome idea! I wish we had someone to do that for us! You mind if I ask -- what did they do for overnight accomd?

Where are the pictures of all the guys with ashes on their backs? Wow, that was a bad idea! Good thing you were there to "declare" an end to it.
