New Year's Eve

I can't believe it's 2012! To be honest, I was pretty glad to see 2011 go! Not that is was a terrible, horrendous year, it just seemed more sad/bad happened than good to family and friends. So here is to a positive outlook on 2012! We joined friends at a country club for the big night! I kept saying, " You know we are getting old when we go to a country club for New Year's!" I had made this comment to my mom and she asked me if I remembered a certain picture. I did and she informed me that that was NYE and they all were going to a country club! It's official-we are turning into our parents! Terrible, but most decent picture I got of us all night! We were about to ring in the New Year!

John and Brett singing and dancing to Usher! We always have fun when we are with him and his wife, Brittany. If you follow my blog regularly, they are Olivia's parents- Brody's girlfriend! :)

Another one of Brett's best friends, Matt. I was handing the camera to Steve to take mine and Brett's picture and Matt jumped in!

So naturally, Brett had to get a picture with Matt's wife, Jessica! We love Matt and Jess!

Brad and Lindsey waiting for midnight! They are an adorable couple and we are just waiting to hear the news that they are engaged. For a split second, we thought Brad was going to do it that night!

Steve and Tracie! We've gotten to know them through Matt and Jess and they are tons of fun to be around as well!

Waiting for dinner to be served- my pictures are out of order! Every time we all get together, the girls sit on one end and the boys on the other! We always joke that it's like a middle school dance!

All of the girls! We had a fun, uneventful night! Our group was basically the party and our waitress kept telling us she would get the fuddy duddies (sp?) out so we could party!ha

Also, on a NYE note, I saw the movie New Year's Eve! It was cute and Hillary Swank's character had a great speech in it (talking about the ball drop), so I will leave you with it! Here's to a healthy, happy, and blessed 2012!

It's suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, to stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt cause that is what new years is all about- getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about what if and start embracing what would be. So when that ball drops at midnight and it will drop, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just tonight but all year long!
