Happy New Year!

Where were you when the first seconds of 2009 rolled in? We were with our good friends Dennis and Teri. Almost every year for over 20 years, we’ve seen the New Year in with their family. With all our kids living away from home now, the party is down to just the four of us, but we don’t let that slow us down. The Barkers and the Irwins party on :) And this year was no exception.

Like we did in 2008, I hope you experience many good times with great friends during this new year. May God richly bless each one of you in 2009!


  1. You guys must have been busy playing a wild and wacky game when I called you after midnight – no one answered! :)

    How did those guys end up with such lovely wives? Great picture!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Sorry we didn’t hear the phone, Kristin! We were deep into Wise and Otherwise at the time :) Dennis & Teri had the game Apples to Apples so we finally got a chance to play that, too. We had lots of fun being our silly, crazy selves :) Happy New Year to you, too, sweetie pie!

  3. A party crowd if I’ve ever seen one! Of course, my vision isn’t as good as it used to be…


  4. Happy New Year!


  5. My one year old woke up crying at 12:04, waking me out of a deep sleep. I was pacing the living room, hoping he’d go back to sleep.
    And he did. :-)
    Looks like you had a nice night.

  6. How about those handsome, young
    men in the picture!

  7. Happy New Year, Cheryl!

  8. May God bless you this coming 2009 as well. I look forward to you next newsletter too!
