New Year

Last night, we were invited to our friends' house to share a wonderful fondue dinner.  As we ate, giant snowflakes fell and turned our brown Christmas into a white New Year.  After dinner, the kids went outside to build snow forts and snowmen.  Conveniently, our friends are also our neighbors, so a little before midnight, we made the short trip home, changed into pajamas, and snuggled in to welcome the new year as a family.  This is the first year our kids have stayed up until midnight.   Here we are with the clock in the background as proof.

We each said a prayer for the new year and turned out the lights.  It was a wonderful way to welcome 2012.  Happy New Year!
