As you know, if you're following along, I have been without power at the farm for several days. "They" are saying it should be restored by the middle of next week, if not sooner. It's not a problem since I can stay with any of my kids whenever I need too.
I am spending New Year's with Abbey and her family. We had a busy day today, meeting with friends for lunch, visiting a bookstore (grandma's favorite), and ending with a trip to see the new Star Wars movie together. They had all seen it before but wanted to come see it with me. Here we are with our snazzy 3D glasses.
We came home and had little sausages in a biscuit (per tradition) and clinked some glasses together for the countdown party. You can have your New Year's countdown any time, you know. It's bound to be midnight somewhere on the globe, even if it's only 8:00.
The kids chose to have a slumber party next to the Christmas tree this year. They each brought a book down and here is the picture of Abbey reading Everett's to him. After all afternoon in a Star Wars movie and Everett chose a 'Star Wars for kids' little golden book for his book to read. Yes, this household is full of serious Sci-Fi fans.
While the kiddos giggled and wiggled in their sleeping bags, Brent worked on a lego project, Abbey read her book, and I finished my 'year-round puzzle'. A perfect puzzle to do on New Year's Eve. New tradition, year 1. Thanks for gifting me this one, Audra.
