New Year's Eve

We went to St. George for New Year's Eve. We LOVE to go to St. George as much as possible. We took a couple of families with us this time and had so much fun! St. George is such a beautiful city. Andy and I met there when we went to college back in 1998, right before he left on his mission. May parents have a beautiful home down there and are generous enough to share it with us when they are not using it. This beautiful picture below is the view from their window!
I love the contrast of the snow capped sandstone. Some if the most beautiful scenery in the world, in my opinion.

We did a lot of shopping and game playing. My friend Lisa planned a fun game for everyone to play New Year's Eve. Kayman fell asleep before we even started. He completely missed all the fun!
Every family had to bring 20 items per person for this game. We labeled each item, and then everyone took turns drawing a number, searching for their item, and that was their prize! There were a lot of fun prizes, some snacks, some random old toys. It was fun to see what you got, and everyone seemed to have a ton of fun. Here is what the table full of prizes looked like.
Syd's prized possession was a hair straightener! She is loving it. Syd is big into fixing her hair, and her friends' hair, so this was the perfect prize for her. Now I just need to teach her how to use it so she doesn't burn her hair!
Once the kids went to bed we played Just Dance on the Wii. It was the funnest game ever! Everyone stayed up until about 1:30 a.m. except Velvet and me, we stayed up until 4:30 talking. She is the greatest friend in the world and I can talk to her about anything for hours on end. She's the one on the left.
Here are us girls taking a calm break long enough to get this picture taken. We were all a bit wild and having fun!
Andy and I on New Year's! What a great night we had! Happy New Year babe! I love you!
So, here's to a new year. Hopefully this year will be at least as good at 2010 was. We had a great year together, and hope for an even better one in the 0-1-1!
