New Year’s Eve in South Carolina

Fireworks - we cheated and did fireworks with the kids at 9:00 and then put them to bed. It was awesome. My firework buddy. Rollie, getting to light a firework. Scary.

Micah - we don't know what that is, but it looks good, right? John, looking very noble and Mickey-Mousish. Jenny, handing out the ear plugs. Ilya, with something dangerous. Rollie wasn't very keen on the ear plug thing. Kai, of course, thought they were awesome. Andy, in a brilliant photo bomb. Okay, you get the idea. Lots of people. Lots of…

Thanksgiving Day Trip – day 5, Thanksgiving Saturday – First half

Of course, on Saturday, our "Thanksgiving Day", we took way too many pictures. At about 2:30 a.m. Bridget and Eric arrived, so we had more people and kids to add to the festivities. This is Jordis. She's very adorable. Simon, guess where? On the trampoline! Every time Hannah brought him in, he'd be very sad and say, "side? Side?" ("outside") The boys were on the run with Cora, who is almost a year older than Kai. They had so much fun with her, she was practically the highlight of the whole five days. Hannah made…
