John and Emmy Turn 21

We spent New Years Eve in Aptos celebrating cousin Emmy and John's big 21st birthday... It was a "Black & White" themed party but Francie couldn't find a suitable outfit in her closet so she wore her favorite party dress. She was a big hit at the party, but not as big as the Wii Jannie scored at Target that morning for Em and John! Johners gave a really nice toast to his parents and Kathy and Rich put on a great party. Aunt Kaky said she remembered being in a hospital room 21 years ago, looking at the two little isolettes thinking "Oh my God, one day these two will turn 21 on New Years Eve!" Of course John has been 21 for quite some time according to the ID in his wallet :) We had fun with the Aptos crowd, but hit the road around 10:30pm to be home before the party-goers hit Highway 17 so we watched the ball drop at home and put Francie-Doodle to bed in the New Year. Happy Birthday Emmy and Johners!

Wii!
