New Year's Eve was special this year, because we got to spend it with Uncle Bigfoot, or Uncle Noelie (we have a book called Uncle Bigfoot, and the Uncle has really big feet, so we named Noel that). He drove down from Maryland with some friends of his, and they invited us over to her parents place near Ft. Worth. They were very hospitable and made us feel oh so welcome. We sang karaoke and lit off fireworks. The kids thought that was great. Well, except Soren. But that is okay. The kids also got to decorate rice krispey treats, and they thought that was a blast. Here's to a wonderful 2012.
