I'm not entirely sure what it says about me/us that both of our children were up for New Year's when the clock stuck midnight. Does it mean we're permissive? Lazy? Open-minded? All of the above?
Try as I might, I can't seem to recall any New Year's eves before high school. And then the ones when I was in college, grad school, and a for a few years after that are just, um, a blur.
Anyway, this was Zander's second one (at which he was awake, that is). In our defense, Cassandra had been asleep, but didn't stay that way. See photo above of her surrounded by six cute little boys, ages three weeks to six years.
Happy New Year and happy birthday to my wonderful mother-in-law (aka Grandma Paula)!
