We made it home before too late–to avoid “amateur hour” on the roads–and toasted the actual turn of the decade over sparkling apple juice. This was the first year Aidan actually made it until midnight. He felt so grown up, and then crashed :-) Happy New Year!
This year we ventured away from home for New Years Eve and had a great time. Our relatively new but very good friends Heidi and Geoff along with their children Autumn and Clay invited us to their home for an afternoon of sledding and an evening of good eats, games, and conversation. Aidan had a great time. He must have climbed up that hill 200 times. Neither Chris nor I braved the cold to take any photos of him sledding, but once inside the house and after the hot chocolate thawed the kids out, we snapped a few.
