Happy New Year

For the kick off of 2009 we were up in Oakley with a mix of family and friends to celebrate the beginning of a New Year with dancing, poker, snowmobiling, and fireworks.

That morning we went to Evanston twice to get fire works for the New Year blast off. I unfortunately did not capture any of the breath taking fireworks that would give the show its due justice.

I did loose Derek in the mayhem of the firework show for a few minutes but of course I easily spot him once he is illuminated from holding fireworks as they shoot out from his hand! He is a bit insane at times.
The following morning people crawled off the couches or floors -where most slept- for a breakfast made for the masses. There was no better way to begin a new year than with people that you love and enjoy. We wish everyone the very best in 2009!
