Happy 2010!!

Happy New Year
from the
Clarkson Family!

We decided this year, since we have a really little one and a **yikes** teenager, we wanted to stay home and ring in the new year homestyle. We invited the Gentles and Jammes to come and have some fun. I'm so glad they came.

Aaron and Mandi taught us how to play Texas Hold Em Poker (I hardly knew her!)

Ms. Georgia tried to get in on the action. Our little lady stayed up until Midnight with us and helped us ring in the year.

We ate Pizza, cheese sticks, bread sticks, ice cream (thank you Winn Dixie) and drank some pink squirrels. YUM!

Jason ended up winning the Poker (I hardly knew her!) game and took all our chips.

We think we may turn this into a yearly tradition. For those wanting to stick close to home and have some good ol' fashioned fun.

Thank you Jammes for showing us the ropes and hanging out with us. We really should do it again real soon. Thank you Gentles for hanging out with us. We always love having your family visit.

May 2010 be the best yet!
