'08 @ 48

This is by far the coolest thing ever done at my house. Sarah came up with the idea of ringing in the new year with a variety show. Preparation for this party took some special skill and a lot of help from Sarah's family. There was hammering, drilling, rearranging...and by the time the guests arrived we had the most awesome little stage...complete with amps, mics and lights! We set up folding chairs for the audience and you would have thought you were in the Ryman
(ok, maybe I should not go that far).

The variety show had everything from musical numbers, stand-up comedy, poetry reading and my personal favorite, the Happy Hands Club. At about 11:30 we spent some time in corporate worship. Worshiping God with other believers was a great way to spend the last few minutes of the year and the first few minutes of the new year.
Doc doing her famous comedy routine!
The excited audience.
Sarah reciting Kara's poem, "The Boy at the Window".
Josh and Katie singing Blessed Assurance.
Susan Hunt singing her original masterpiece, The Mullet Song.
Bob Cali playing, um, I can't remember what this is called.
The Fabulous Hostesses

It looks like a hammered dulcimer, Kellye.

Looks like you guys had fun! Would have loved to have been there, but we were too busy having our own party. ;)

Next year you have to come! You and William need to start preparing your 'musical number'.

Oh, you are right, that is a hammered dulcimer...thanks.
