New Year's Eve

On New Year's Eve, Eric & I drove down to Amite, LA to visit with Adam, Jeannie and the kids on our way back to Baton Rouge. Adam was the pastor at Eric's church in Natchez, where we got married. He was also the officiator at our wedding. He and Eric are really good friends. However, they moved to North Carolina in July so that Adam could attend Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest. So, we haven't seen them since the summer. They were in Amite visiting Adam's family for the holiday, so we decided to take a trip down to Amite to see them before they headed back to North Carolina. It was great to get to visit with them. We roasted hotdogs, made s'mores and had fireworks for the kids. I showed Miriam how to do the sparklers. I know that was a little dangerous... but she did fine. I was actually the one that ended up getting burnt :( But not too bad. Of course, Levi didn't really like them. I think they were too loud. But he was fine as long as Eric or I was holding him. Here are some pictures from the night.

he didn't really like it and started crying right after this.

And you said Levi wasn't clingy while I was gone :)

He really wasn't... just during the fireworks. I guess because they were too loud or something.
