Happy New Year Anyway!

In art class this week, Beth made a 2011 hat and brought home a horn. I was excited to take her picture last night in her celebration gear, while toasting at midnight.

At 11:45 I went downstairs to tell her we only had a few minutes and it was time to come up to the livingroom. I got out the wine glasses and the Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash (it was very good!).

At 3 minutes to midnight I went back down...

"Beth come on! It's time to do our toast!"

Chuck and I counted down, toasted, kissed and drank.

Sharaya and Diana had gone to a movie with friends and came in at that moment. We started talking about their evening and laughed a lot. We sat there for a while when Sharaya asked Chuck to take her home. (Ryan was out helping with the youth group at their church.)

It was about 2 AM when Beth came upstairs. She walked into the office,

"Where's Dad?"

"He took Sharaya home."

"Where's Diana?"

"She went to bed."

Beth held her hand to her mouth like she was drinking from a glass.

"Arent we gonna do the thing?"

Oh well! Happy New Year anyway! :)
