New Year's Eve

Like every year, we knew this year's theme for the costume party several months ago, but like every year, we waited until the night before to start making our costumes. If you haven't already scrolled through all of the photos and figured it out already, this year's theme was Prehistoric.

The Gardener and I decided to go as a Fred and Wilma Flintstone.
For the second year in a row, I won the contest for best female costume.
And this guy won best male costume. He totally deserved the win, spending the entire evening in little more than a pair of women's shape wear.
The rest of the costumes were fantastic as well. New Year just wouldn't be New Year without synthetic wigs and over the top accessories.

Have you ever seen so much animal print fabric in one room? As usual, the party was a blast and we all had a great time ringing in the new year.

The only low spot of the night was when poor T was busting a move on the dance floor and wound up busting her knee. Yes, a broken kneecap and a trip to the ER this morning was how she spent the first day of the new year. Feel better soon, T!

Love the pics. I look forward to the pics every year. You know my pregnant ass was in bed by 10 so I appreciate living vicariously through y'all.

Hope T feels better soon. Poor thing!

I"m so impressed! I was early to bed last night - to old.
You all looked adorable ... and ouch on the kneecap! What does one do about a broken knee cap? Do you get a cast?

OK, does the guy in the red elastic suit breathe? Just wondering.

You guys look great!
