It’s 10:42 pm.
We just said goodbye to our dearest friends who came over to ring in the New Year with us. We counted down and watched the ball drop, toasted 2009 with sparkling cider and lit off some fireworks.
At 9:00 pm.
My family lives in Oregon, but we celebrated a New York New Year’s three hours before midnight on the west coast. For dinner, we had New York pizza and then the kids settled down with Home Alone 2: Lost in New York while the grown-ups played cards. A few minutes before midnight (nine) we pulled up a live feed of times square and partied. All of the fun, none of the I’m-so-excited-but-I’m-tired-and-cranky-and-I’ve had-too-much-sugar-so-I-think-I’ll-just-lay-here-and-scream episodes that
I children might be prone to have.
So, for all intents and purposes 2008 is over. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the last year.
Happy New Year!
