Tim and I usually just stay home on New Year's Eve so we can avoid the crazy drivers. I know, I know, we're sooo boring! But the older kids go out with friends to dances or parties or some other fun activity. And for the last 3 years, Ellie has gone to a super fancy dance in downtown Seattle where she gets to wear formal evening wear. This year, she went with Marquis. Aren't they a cute couple?
