The 2nd Annual Fair-Williams-Bennett-Copier New Year's Eve Game Night

 Last night we got together with some of our best friends to celebrate the new year in style with our 2nd Annual Fair-Williams-Bennett-Copier New Year's Eve Game and Fondue Night.    And as you can plainly see from the picture above, partying is serious business.  We do not mess around.  We dressed up, curled our hair and put our party hats on!

Ali made two delicious types of fondue and she had all sorts of stuff to dip in them.  We ate so much!  It was fabulous.  Then Porter and I brought stuff over for a chocolate fondue.  My favorite was the cream puffs dipped in dark chocolate, although the strawberries were a close second.


After dinner, a small photo session ensued.

Ummm..........

Cute little family

And the cutest couple award goes to...

When we finished with our fabulous photo shoot, we played Settlers of Catan.  Highlights of the game included: Jon getting the Economic metropolis, Ali's pursuit of pashmina, coin purse, and bibles, the great road of Erin, and Porter winning the game.  I love game nights!!!  

Cheers to 2013!!!!
