And a happy new year!

I missed Christmas somehow, at least blogChristmas. I hope it was happy and merry and not a completely commercial giftathon at your houses.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We did pretty well over here, although it was still so many presents that the baby lost interest half way through and had to open the rest the following day. But still and all, it was lovely to hear my six-year-old sing in the choir at mass, lovely to spend some drama-free time with my extended family, lovely to be warm and cozy snuggled up with the kids whilst sledding, lovely to see the Nutcracker, to eat Chinese feast, to drink wine, to recall old family memories and create new ones.

And I hope that 2010 brings more of the same! I know that 2009 was a rough year for a lot of folks, but we were more fortunate, and I will remember it very fondly as the year that Lucy learned to walk, that Henry learned to read and that Riley learned to ride a two-wheeler. We had wonderful vacations that took us from coast to coast. We made new friends and reconnected with old ones. So, as always, I am a little sad to see the old year go, but look forward with eager anticipation to what the new one will bring.

Peace and much love to you all.

OH! And in case you are actually awake at midnight, and you need the lyrics to “Auld Lang Syne,” this is what I’ve always sung. Happy New Year!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
for old lang syne…
