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,
"He took Sharaya home."
"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! :)
