Ringing in the New Year

To say we eat amply when we are together would be an understatement.
Ben made a lovely fire,
and the house started to fill up as we put some dinner together.
Omi with four of her eleven grandchildren.
Will you look at that cute little smile (and I'm not talking about you this time, Evan)?
Our niece Sophie is like a little mommy to all the littler cousins.
Hugo found the french bread.  
Two of my nieces, who have blossomed into the most lovely young women.
Can anyone pick out the two that are blood brothers?
Bonus points if you guessed these two!  The oldest and the youngest of the family.
And here's our beloved Aunt Elisabeth along with granddad.
We had three birthdays in our midst and a gluten free carrot cake to celebrate.

At the stroke of midnight, we had six little ones sleeping under our roof, a cold January sky over our heads, and very full hearts.  Happy New Year to you all!
