The neighborhood parties by now are pretty much a template - someone rents a tent, someone gets some firewood, everyone brings a dish to share and their own drinks and we gather on the field to celebrate the holiday du jour. It's great, easy and a guaranteed good time.
|Stevie, Dima and Jon cutting firewood. Christmas trees and palettes work well!|
|Dima and his new toy (the safety glasses were courtesy of London!)|
When the night got dark, Stevie fired up the bonfire with his new toy ( a rifle lighter from Don.)
Let the festivities begin!!!
Ever wonder how fast a Christmas tree will burn? Answer: FAST
A gathering of good friends:
|Krimp and Joe|
|Me and Krimp|
|London and Aiden|
|Spencer and Suzy|
|The kids playing Just Dance|
|And the adults...|
|We may look ridiculous, but we were having fun!|
|Isn't this the coolest picture - Cannon contemplates fire|
And then watched the fireworks over American Village...
|Eric offering poor Wendell like Simba in the Lion King|
Happy 2012 everyone!
