I heard about a New Year's celebration for families pretty close us, so we decided to give it a try.
It helped that the weather was absolutely perfect - about 60 degrees and sunny that day.
We walked around and enjoyed people-watching and letting the girls run about.
They had some beautiful Christmas decorations out. It was nice to see the lights once it started to get dark.
Lera let me pick her up and snuggle for pictures, but Chess didn't.
I had fun experimenting with the camera while the girls were munching on some cookies. My blue-eyed girl.
I'm not sure if Lera's eyes are gray, green, or hazel, but they are so unique and pretty.
Blurry picture, but look at that expression. Is she two or 12?!
They did fireworks to celebrate the new year at 6:00 pm. Genious! Our girls cried, but I thought it was fun. Chess likes to reminisce by saying, "Remember when we saw fireworks and we cried because we were scared?" Yes, Chess, I remember. :)
