New Year's repast

My Neighbor, friend, and ex -business partner Ann and her husband Mark had us all over for a festive New Year's meal.
Everyone brought appetizers, a side dish, and dessert. Ann and Mark did the main course.

Everything was delicious and for the most part, very healthy. A wonderful way to end 2008 and begin 2009

Good conversation, lots of laughs and a relaxing time with old friends and neighbors.

Ann is always this cheerful, even when washing dishes. I miss her as a business partner, but still have her as a good friend, paddle partner, and neighbor.

 There were ten of us, (I was a bit lazy with the camera and didn't photograph everyone.) It was  really nice to finally get the chance after a hectic holiday season to catch up with friends in a more intimate group. We all have kids around the same age, play a lot of sports, and basically have a lot in common. It makes for an easy and relaxing evening.
