We're so excited about 2009! Soon, we'll have a little Tova to help us celebrate life in the new year. We're so excited to show her the world and the amazingness of God's creation. It'll be great!
For New Years Eve, we got lunch and headed to Lake Morton to sit and watch the birds (and try to get them to leave our food alone) and play some cards in the sun. It was gorgeous. We used our new camcorder to take some cute "last days alone" footage. Unfortunately, we still need some software before David can work on editing the footage, so that'll have to be posted later.
That evening, our beloved Katie came over. She was supposed to leave for Utah a few days ago, but her new job has been delayed a couple weeks. So we had the pleasure of hanging out with Katie, eating snacks, playing Wii, and walking around the ghost-town-like downtown Lakeland. Katie left before midnight, but left sparkling cider for Kallie; so at midnight, we had a sweet toast as the ball dropped in Times Square. We then walked outside with two-year-old sparklers and attempted to light them. As that failed, we noticed some kids doing fireworks and went over to see them. It happened to be our friend, Tara, from Access Church. We were excited to see her and some other people we recognized. After hanging out for a bit, we called it a night.
New Years Eve was also Kallie's dad's birthday! Happy bday, pops!
We decided that the best way to start the new year would be to have a delicious breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Yum! Kallie was feeling tired, so we just watched football mostly. A nice lazy day.
So Happy New Year to everyone! We hope it's a great one for you and yours.
