it's been a great year.
all four days of it.
we celebrated the new year as a family.
we had balloons.
as if we needed devices to make more noise.
and ice cream sundaes.
we played games.
and drank sparkling juice.
at 8:15 we rang in the new year with confetti cannons.
and then put the kids to bed.
I stayed up for midnight.
when the ball dropped I woke up tom to kiss,
with tears in my eyes I told him how happy I was
to be with him another year and so excited about the blessings in 2011.
and then I tiptoed in to kiss my two sleeping babes.
hello 2011. I like you already.
