Welcome 2008! We rang in the new year at the annual party at the Rhodes!!
Loved the face painting...Tegan's a T-rex

Darling Ash (in case you couldn't tell with the mask.)

Aubree and Myla as kitties

Ash and Daddy singing "Should I Stay or Should I Go" with Rock Band. Madi and Lizzy, our cute neighbor Caryn, Sara, Susan, Janette, Me, Jane and little Sela
Happy New Year! I am always in shock at the amounts of confetti that flies from off the upper's a good 2-3inches thick when it finally falls to the ground...I'm holding my breath wondering if we'll ever get it clean...And it never ceases to amaze me that within an hour it looks like before we came (well, almost.)

At midnight the dads and kids jumped in a 102 degree pool! The kids were hands down most excited about this part of the night. Ash kept asking, "Is it midnight yet...I want to go swimming!"

I feel the need to disclaim this picture...nah.
THANKS AGAIN RHODES FOR A GREAT PARTY! And to all our family and friends out there-may this year be a prosperous, healthy and fun one!

(sorry to hear the climbing equipment is outdated, hehe) - So fun to see pics from your kids performances, thank you for coming to the Nutcracker, I love the pictures of Colorado (especially the kids sleeping with the blankets I made them. :-) ) and...Happy New Year! Thanks for coming to our party, we love hosting it!

Hi. I found your blog from another one and I remember meeting you once at a play of Steph's. Does she have a blog? I would love to get in contact with her.

Daphne said...

Dear theater junkie,
No she doesn't have a blog YET, give me your email and I'll have her write you.

Daphne, It's me, Sally Cooper, fellow SUU friend. I can't believe that this is your blog. I was trying to find another friend's blog (also Blanchards) and I came across yours. Crazy! It looks like life is great for you. Your kids are adorable. So are you! Check us out at My email is I would love to get back in contact with you.
