there was plenty lined up for new year's eve


we were going to just drop in on sue, sammy and spencer for a short visit


but what with all the snacks...


and the heavy metal drummer performing for us...


and sammy being so cute...


...we ended up staying long enough to get sucked into an early new year's celebration!
(incidentally, midnight happens at 8pm if you have kids)


jeff quickly figured out how to play auld lang syne, which was lovely, but a very sad song


so sad that sammy hit the champagne pretty hard


see what the new year has in store
