Ruben's 40th and New Years

Last week we celebrated Ruben's 40th birthday. Our wonderful friends, Jen and Dean, were so sweet and offered to host the party at their place. It turned out to be such a fun time! Music, friends, drinks (not for me of course) and yummy food equal one heck of a time!

Bordertown Saints (Ruben's band) played a set.

I wore a dress Nicky gave me a while back. It's perfect for my growing belly!

New Years was pretty mellow since we partied it up the night before.

Here is a little illustration I made for our friends that was in a gift basket we gave them.

Jessica and Leon (the cutest little fella around)

At midnight we went outside and banged pots and pans to ring in the New Year!

I hope 2011 brings much joy and happiness to you all!
