Friends, family, family friends, and family who are friends... Yesterday we had another family gathering, this time in honor of Josiah's birthday. He will turn 20 on Friday but we decided to celebrate early, while Jim is still home. My sister Rachel came with Dave and the boys and also my Aunt Margie. It was a nice afternoon. We ate lasagna and had brownie sundaes. Ellie thoroughly embarrassed us by jumping onto Aunt Margie's lap and into her plate of lasagna. She had sauce all over her foot. Yucky! Good thing I had just given her a bath. Mom took another turn holding the baby even though she wasn't feeling quite like herself yesterday, and Dave took the splint off his broken arm to give it a little "exercise". We were able to see the pretty bruise colors and the set of railroad tracks down his arm. Ouch!
Tonight our kids are coming over again and also some friends. We're going to have a little New Year's Eve party. After cleaning my house all day, I'm not sure if I will make it til midnight but at least I have "swept out the old" and am ready for the new.
Have a Happy New Year!
Welcome to the North Pole.
