Here' s to 2008!!

The last day of 2007 has been great so far!

I got my grocery shopping done early, ran the necessary errands, cleaned out the hall closet, and put away the kid's laundry. We have everything we need to cook the family dinner tomorrow (for 6 adults and 6 kids), and the house is reasonably in order. I had a surprise visit from a friend who spent Christmas in sunny Florida and then a nice chat with my dear friend who lives in Nova Scotia. And, I even had some time this evening to quilt- whoo hoo! What a way to spend New Year's Eve! (We're getting bad weather, so our typical New Year's Eve tradition of taking the kids to the fireworks is not on the agenda this year).

2007 has been a remarkable year for our family. We finally have our son and brother! We had a fantastic trip to China. We made new friends with the families we travelled with. We really have been blessed beyond belief. And we know it, and are grateful.

I wish for all of you the best in 2008. May your blessings be abundant and your worries few!

Two minutes 'til midnight here... we're the first province in Canada to celebrate the New Year. Have a great one, everyone.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.... Happy New Year!!

Happy 2008 to you. You beat us again, but only by 30 minutes... hope you aren't too overwhelmed by all the snow.
