(Posting is behind. Sick baby.)
We spent New Years Eve playing games, eating Christmas cookies, weighed and measured each child and shared our New Year's goal. The candles in the Advent wreath burned down unnoticed and the wreath caught fire. In the commotion someone spilled a glass of water which trickled down through the table leaves onto the baby who was playing at our feet under the table. (We joked that our sprinkler system went off.) The wreath was tossed out into a snowbank, the baby was dried and changed and we went on to toast the new year with sparkling juice and champagne and prayed our rosary before bed.
We are looking forward to all the joy and excitement that 2010 will bring.
A Blessed New Year to All!
