Happy New Year!!!! We had a quiet night at home. Taylor broke out her paints and was quite crafty. That kept her busy all night as Dot and I watched TV, had a nice dinner, and a few drinks.
Taylor, on the other hand, had no problem whatsoever staying awake. For the first time ever, she was up running around at midnight. There was no way Dot or I could go to sleep and have her miss out.
On New Years' Day, Taylors god parents and family drove down from Tampa. The boys went of the Orange bowl game, while the girls went out to dinner then back to my house to gossip. Ceci allowed G to spend the night, so taylor had her first sleep over EVER!! She was so excited when we said yes, she couldn't stand it. They watched movies, ate popcorn in bed, played video games, and stayed up til midnight. They then had waffles in bed the next morning. Those girls were loving life.
I can't believe the holidays are over. They were pretty strange this year, as for the first time ever there was no older generation around. As many of you know, my mom died in May, my dad is in a nursing home through February, and my mom's older sister suffered some health issues causing her to move to CT with her son for the foreseeable future. It was just me, my sissy and Taylor. But for T, we probably wouldn't have celebrated. But since its all about T, the celebrations went on.
Now, we're trying to gear up for school next week and get back to our usual routine. I'm planning another girlscout meeting...its going to be all about yarn. Stay tuned for that.
Merry Christmas, all!
