Happy (Belated) 2011

Christmas and New Year's were wonderful and fun-filled, though I was quite sick for most of it (from mastitis). It took a lot out of me to entertain and be entertained, but it was so much fun to see everyone. I'm just now feeling back to normal (Hooray!).

Sharee & Bryce came all the way from Colorado, Millard came all the way from Washington, and Melissa & Jason from Driggs. We had a happy house-full. It was the best kind of commotion. I was regretting that I couldn't be a better hostess and talk to everyone more. Can we just have a do-over please? Hmmm.. Maybe next year.

Brandon made his traditional New Year's Eve donuts:

And then, also traditionally, I ate way too many of them.

We had fondue, finger food, fruits & veggies, appetizers, and dips of every kind.

The big kids played video games, the little kids ran amok and played boisterously with cousins. We all had a great time. Ellorie didn't fall asleep in a box this year, but she didn't make it to midnight either. I may or may not have fallen asleep at ten-thirty-ish. I was, however, awake for the ringing in of the new year.

Here is Rylan with his cousin, Miles. Can you guess which baby is almost 4 months and which baby is almost 1 year? What can I say, we grow midgets around here.

And that is the extent of the pictures I took. None of cute little Case or Morgan. None at all. The camera curse of large gatherings I suppose.

I hope all of you had a wonderful New Year! I've found myself feeling a little less enthusiastic about blogging lately. Hopefully I'll get over it. But if not, please excuse my posts being fewer and farther between...
