Happy New Year 2008

Brian and I were so elated to ring in the new year. 2008 is going to be the beginning of a new, exciting, and perhaps sleepy chapter of our lives that we are really looking forward to. When the clock struck 12midnight, Brian showered me with kisses and had such a content look on his face. I feel really lucky - he's going to be such a great dad!

My Dad and his girlfriend, Anne, came to visit us and stayed through New Year's. We had such a wonderful time and hated to see them leave. The four of us spent New Year's Eve celebrating with the family of Brian's great high school friend, Brandon. (In the pic, Brandon is second from the left, next to his fiance Elizabeth). We love spending New Year's with them and do so every couple of years. After an evening of a lot of wine, etc. (I had the sparkling apple juice along with the kids!), we rung in the new year with a game of Texas Hold 'Em Poker. Brian and I are novices and we lost it all by about 2:30am, but since the ante was only $5, we had a lot of fun playing big and bluffing all we could!

I wish all of you have a healthy, happy, and bright New Year 2008! Now, I need to go finalize my list of resolutions...
