Murder Solved, ring in the New Year!

We are almost done with the Murder Mystery Dinner and are are now getting ready to ring in the New Year!

We had gone through clues, questions and accusations. It was getting close, everyone was on edge...LOL

Was the murderer one of these three?? Possibly!











hmmmmmmmmmmm, "Ricardo" is under the watchful eye of the assistant detective....




between Buzzy the ski bum, Alicia the information dealer and Laura Maitland (M.D.)





it turned out to be......












Yes, "Laura Maitland", Chief Coroner, who was after Buzzy, but killed his twin brother (who had been separated at birth and raised by another family in New York), with an icicle in the carotid artery, on the deck !!!

Who KNEW!

We finally got to ring in the New Year, then we sat around talked and laughed until 2:30am.










We all headed off to bed, no one went home (it's a tradition)


The next morning we had a huge breakfast, packed up and headed off.
(a couple of morning after pictures)










Anne and I sharing a laugh










Anne and Dean had to get their car home, so we headed back to my place and collected their car. I drove my car behind Dean because they didn't have tails lights and just to be safe, in case something happened and the car broke down. We made it!


I headed back home and unpacked, it was well after 3pm. I was exhausted!!


So, there you go, just another quiet time with the Wooo Hooo's.....NOT!!!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

now we can get back to the regularly scheduled blog....

So, as the host, do you know who the murderer is ahead of time, or do you get surprised as well?
