Happy New Year!

(The ladybugs remind me of Beth - I think she'd like this print.)

Steve's birthday was yesterday and while it was busy, it was busy in an enjoyable, relaxing way. We all stayed up to see in the new year, but because it was raining we didn't set off fireworks at the lake.

Everyone slept in this morning, then each did whatever he wanted to do. It was very nice. This evening we went out to the lake and Tom and David set off fireworks for our enjoyment. Mom and Dad had Ed and Joanne over, so they came out and helped to swell our little audience for the pyrotechnics. It was so cold, and the wind was biting, but there were moments of stunning beauty. Joan pointed out the break in the clouds that allowed moonlight to shine on the lake, even though we couldn't see the moon. The greens, reds, and yellows of the fireworks were brilliant against the backdrop of the ragged gray and black clouds. We huddled together under blankets on the beach and ooooh-ed and aaahh-ed for the show.

Auburn won their bowl game. Steve watched, and is continuing to watch, bowl games. Jacy went to Mary Beth's. Tom got living room furniture from Chuck and Kim. David, Sam, Marley and Joan filmed movies with David's little camera. Sarah read, listened to music, and IM'ed. I worked on adding more of our books to LibraryThing. (I think if I work on it tonight and tomorrow I can finish the downstairs books, and I think that when I have all the downstairs books done, I'll be over half-way with all our books!)
