We survived til midnight and turned the TV on just in time to watch the last of the countdown to the new year. Not sure about all the excitement... it just seems like another day to me. But then I'm an old fuddy duddy now. We called the kids upstairs and rewound the TiVo so they could watch the countdown too. Elizabeth, who was asleep on the couch, woke up to our cheering and wasn't so thrilled about the interruption in her beauty rest. Ruth was carried upstairs and tucked in bed. She never knew anything had happened.
So, that's the story of how Maggie turned 7 and we celebrated our 2009. Fun, eh?
This post has taken me 10 days to complete and the washer just beeped finished. Guess it should be the end.
