We welcomed 2010 with a celebration at the home of our good friends Wendy and Randy.
Wendy is the consummate hostess, and she assembled a wonderful mixture of families and children with many magical, festive touches. It was a fabulous way to kick off what I hope will be a wonderful year for all of us!
Wendy had treat bags for the kids to open each hour. The bags contained party horns, hats, streamers, glasses, etc. What a clever and fun way for the kids to mark the countdown!
Their garage was set up with crafts for the kids as well
We enjoyed a wonderful spread of Chinese food for dinner
Vivian had a great time upstairs in the playroom
Wendy asked the guests to bring baby pictures of themselves. We all had fun trying to guess who each one was
We celebrated the New Year on East Coast time. Just before the countdown Randy rolled out a swath of bubblewrap for the kids to jump on at "midnight"
Vivian didn't quite make it to the New Year, falling asleep in my lap sometime earlier, and even all of the popping and celebrating didn't wake her!

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
