We are so lucky to be related to the best party throwers on planet Earth. We have been invited over for Thanksgiving, Christmas dinner, and now their New Year's celebration this year. How do they do it?! Stephen and Rachel... the pinnacle of party planning. The dynamic duo. No list of guests too large, no game too messy, no water chestnut without bacon. When I grow up (or get less lazy) I want to throw parties like the S&R Hixons.

This New Years Eve I enjoyed New York Charades, the Dollar Game, the food, and the general festivities. The kids enjoyed the games every hour on the hour. The whole "New Years across America" theme was brilliant.

Here are some random festive shots from Dan's camera.

Asher was dang tired, but stayed up the whole party long.

Wow! That is awesome. Way cooler than the party that I went to. I hope that I am like that when I am married. Makes life so much more fun. They are awesome and I am glad I have been a part of some of their parties as well.
