We had a great New Years Eve Party. We had twelve kids. Are you jealous? It was actually very smooth. At my twentieth high school reunion I reconnected with Sherry, my friend since fourth grade. During the reconnection I found out that she comes back to Oklahoma every year after Christmas. Well hello! We had to get together, with everyone. Well, most of us made it some could not come due to family obligations and just plain old life. But we had a great time.

Tony, took this picture and I was trying a new pose that I read about to be more attractive in photos. Instructions were to pose to the side, chin down, eyes up, shoulders back, and chest out. I think I nailed it. I might not be a model but I tried, and he noticed, wondering out loud, what the hell was that look? But of course there is always the one person that is not ready so in the above photo I cropped her out and I think she would thank me. (love you!)

Here is the second picture taken after my husband asked who I was trying to impress with the first photo. Uh, him of course. Our kids had a great time eating, playing the Wii, playing hida and seek, and generally running through the house. Sherry has four boys and Cheryl has two. My stepson is in heaven when Cheryl's kids come over and our girls think they are Brittany Spears/Hannah Montana/ICarly/Zoey101 when Sherry's boys are around.

And shock of all shocks. My sister actually came to my house for more than two hours! She brought her 2 year old daughter, Margaret, who she put to bed at 8 p.m. Amazing. I loved having Kelly here and it was so nice to hang out with her. My good friends Sonja and Dave stopped to say hello and left yummy peanut brittle and candied pecans, that we ate in one shot. They had another party to attend, a party sans 12 kids, imagine.

    One tip on the photo the time your 30th rolls around you will want the photog velcro'd to the ceiling and you lying flat on your back so your chin(s) fall to the back of your neck.

    Trust me on this one.

    Oh great! Though it used to be I thought it would help my double chin by lifting my chin up and sticking my head out. Oh, those pictures were beauties....
