We headed to Dallas to be with Jeff's family and ring in the New Year. His older brother, wife, & 8-week-old nephew were in for the weekend as well. His younger brother—whose toothbrush I mistakenly commandeered—was home for winter break & probably couldn't wait for all of us to leave! [Especially after the stolen toothbrush incident.]
We spent the first part of New Year's Eve with Liz's sisters & their men at a DeLiCiouS steak house called Bob's Steak & Chop House. Very well worth every $pent! The portions were HUGE!!! I wasn't even able to touch half of my plate. They serve a single carrot on every plate & were hands down the largest carrots I've ever seen! Of course I had to take a panorama & wished that it had a 360 setting! But for now we'll have to work with two 180's :)
After dinner we were invited to Katie's [Liz's sister] townhouse to hang out and watch the fireworks show from her rooftop terrace. I now want a rooftop terrace; will have to add that in my rental search criteria.

|Just before midnight. We enjoyed several different fireworks shows|
in neighboring suburbs. I heart fireworks

|Kevin & Liz, new momma & daddy!|
And this is what I did about 50% of the time that we were at the house:
|Baby nap time; look at his little leg warmers!!!!|
Part of me didn't even want to go to dinner Saturday night as I would have much preferred to sit peacefully and hold Jeff's brand new nephew. He is so precious!!! This was Jeff's first time to meet baby Cameron [mine, too].
|All of the Men; the girls are slightly outnumbered :)|
