New Years Eve

We had a wonderful dinner at Leslie and John's last night. It was so nice to see Claire play with a few of her cousins. Its also great to have Granny and Bozena so nearby. I don't have any pictures to post, I think some of the only photos taken were with a Polaroid camera for use as Christmas Tree ornaments, but I'm sure you can imagine the warm atmosphere and delicious food that goes with dinner at Leslie and John's.

I also got my camera cords back so I was able to load more pictures. And, Claire got one more Christmas present from Bapa, a desktop computer. She loves it and has been playing games we got from the library all morning. Speaking of camera cords and Christmas, the pictures I finally got to see are worth checking out. And there are a few must mentions. One of the highlights of Christmas with my family was the (for lack of a better name) Foam Disk War Game. My mom got everybody one of those guns that flings foam disks across the room, and of course, we turned it into a girls against the guys game. Claire was mostly a neutral party, but seemed confused about who were alleys and enemies. And of course, Claire received a bunch of really nice stuff, but anyone who has ever had a 2 year old, or been around a 2 year old, can look at this picture and identify what was played with most. You can see the entire set of our Christmas pictures here.

Today is New Years Eve. Our plan for tonight is to celebrate with James and Elissa, and their kids. It will be a low-key and quiet start to a very busy January, and what promises to be a very big and exciting year for us Halbergs.

I can't believe it, Sheela bowled a 154 on New Years Eve day! The game ended with Sheela throwing four straight strikes and me wondering if there is anything she doesn't do well!
