The Winner!

Well, Ez has had quite a year in cubscouts. Last year about this time he won the grand prize in their annual Father/Son cake decorating competition, and now this--the top dog of them all--the Pinewood Derby. His car (the creation of which was heavily assisted by Dad and Levi) was named "T-Bone". It wasn't all that pretty, but it was fast!

This was his reaction to the final race.

Second and Third were his two closest friends. (This shows 1st, 3rd, 2nd.)

I'm so glad everyone was home for the big event--we had a blast!

New Year's Eve 2006

As I've said, New Year's Eve is a party at our house. The photos here are actually of both our party and one that we attended at some friends' before the 9:30 start of the one here. Mal and Lisa danced at both and our friends had the pig and other island food where ours was hors d'oeuvres (or whatever people wanted to bring). Mal caught the cool pictures of firworks lighting up the night. I don't think I've ever seen such a big fireworks display from the houses we can see from here as there was this year! Ours also included the hillbilly band, complete with the washtub bass that Casey and Levi made.
