New Years Rockin Eve!

Despite just returning from Oklahoma the Sunday before, we decided to jump back in the car and head to Hotlanta for New Years. We spent New Years Eve with Scott’s cousin Janet Turner and her husband in Conyers, GA. Grandma and Papa Anderson and the Workman family met us there. As is tradition, we ate at Duruma Japanese Steakhouse for New Years Eve and then came home to watch the ball drop with Ryan Seacrest and Dick Clark. Here’s a picture of our clan at the restaurant. We were wondering what Keaton’s reaction would be to the flaming grill, clanging utensils, and flying knives. He loved it! He kicked his feet and smiled the entire time!

The next day, we headed to Alpharetta to meet up with some old friends for lunch! Here’s us with Nate, Ginny, Ella, and Scarlet Early, Nathan Brauer, and Andrew and Valerie Hobbs (in town from England!). What a treat to catch up with good friends – we miss them so much!

After lunch, we headed over to Braselton, so Keaton could see his good buddy, Andrew Batusic (it was fun visiting with John and Melissa too ☺)! Andrew and Keaton had a great time taking a bath and playing together. As usual, we told them they better get used this – they will be friends – whether they like it or not!

Our original New Years plans involved stopping in Chattanooga to see some more friends and spend another night, but we had to cut our trip short because Scott and Keaton both woke up on the 2nd with nasty cold symptoms. We decided we had spread enough germs and headed home to our lonely, neglected Clementine, who was very happy to see us!
