New Year's Eve photos

My husband and I spent the evening with Shaun and Gayla.  We had a nice early dinner at Outback Steakhouse.  I had the 6 oz. filet, dressed baked potato and house salad with ranch dressing.  I also had two glasses of wine with my meal.  The dinner was very tasty.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any photos inside the restaraunt.  I did however, make a ham of myself before going to the restaraunt.  I'm never in any photos at any holiday function so I decided I needed to be in some photos this year even if I had to take them myself.

I hope you all don't think I'm too obnoxious.  I was feeling pretty good I must say. I felt skinny and I haven't felt skinny in a very long time.

Well, I felt skinny except for the flab on my arms.  You know how we ladies are.

Justin was a good sport and posed with me even though he didn't want to.

I was having a lot of fun playing in front of the camera.
I took loads of pictures but I'll spare you from having to look at them all.

I took the tri-pod to Shaun and Gayla's house too so I could get photos of us having fun.
We all hammed it up there too.
Gayla's husband likes to make funny faces and Gayla and I like to show off.
Justin is pretty neutral.  He's a good sport.

We were playing spades and drinking wine.
Well, Gayla and I were drinking wine.
The guys were staying pretty alert.
Every now and then I would blurt out, "camer time" and we'd all turn and give our best smile and I'd push the button on my remote control and snap our photo.
The photo above was the first one we took.

As the night wore on everyone got more comfortable behind the camera.

Obviously, I'm feeling pretty good.

Ah, we love each other.

I'm having way too much fun.

Up oh, look out.  You got us started now.
We're dancing fools.

No more dancing.  It's almost midnight.

The clock has struck twelve.
Oh, look at those two smoochers.
I don't recall if I got my kiss at midnight or not.

Oh well, it was all fun.

I took 173 photos this night.
You all just get a glance.

I hope everyone has a fantastic year in 2011.

I hope it's a good one.

My one wish for the new year is private and personal but I can tell you in two words what describes my wish.
Renew and strengthen!

Happy New Year, Everyone!

    I'm glad you had a good time. I'm sorry as well that we didn't get together at Christmastime, but the holiday just seem to go by so quickly and before you know it it's New Years Day!

    But looking forward to meeting you in 2011 my friend!

  7. I just love these! (big smile) Fun!!!! You look fab chicklet! Happy 2011 with love!

  8. What a fun post. I wish you a prosperous and happy new year. Hopefully, I can find some time to jump in on the FSO's this year.

  9. A great idea. I had read somewhere that one should set up a tripod and take pictures throughout the festivity. I didn't do anything special and do not look as cute as no photos of our New Years.

  10. Looks like you had a mighty good time! I like that shiny outfit you're wearing. I wore a black skirt and cowboy boots, and we went to see a movie on New Year's Eve: Black Swan....scary.

  11. Looks like a blast! And yes, you do look skinny.
