New Years Eve

HAPPY NEW YEAR

We had a grand church gathering on New Years Eve at the Bessette's home. Which means there was plenty of food & desserts, some great games going on and a lot of fellowship! The Boardman family was also in town for the holidays and it was so wonderful to be able to see them again. They moved away to Ohio just a couple of months ago. Although it seems like they have been gone forever, it was just like the good ol' days having them around. We miss you guys sooooo much!!! Of course with kiddo's in the fam now, we made it only till about 9:30 p.m. and headed home. But John & I stayed up to watch a movie and caught the NY ball dropping on TV just in time!! [we literally turned it on with one minute left! Whew!]







This is Drew's buddy, Jacob. He is about 8 months older than Drew and they have been great buds since day 1 in nursery! They love being silly together as you can see...they are both 100% boys!



This is Evan Hamilton.

He was in our youth group and is always making us laugh! He is now in CT at Hellicopter school! That's right, he'll be flying in just 2 years--and has already done his solo flight! It's been so neat to see how the Lord has led Evan to this point in his life.

Looks like so much fun! We also had an activity after church, but I excused myself and took the kiddos home. I fell asleep at 11:40 :) What an old fogie I have become :) Also, I'd love to chat about a schedule, as well as pick your brain about some age-appropriate activities for toddlers.

Wow! I stumbled across your blog from Shyla's. It is so neat to catch up on people from Northland! What cute little boys you and John have.
