A New Year!

Happy New Year!   I can't believe that it is already 2011.  We had a quiet start to the year.  The girls spent the night at my mom's house.  My mom said that Caroline started asking when the ball was going to drop at around 6:00. She asked about every 15 minutes.  When the ball finally did drop in New York Caroline went crazy.  Mom said she was jumping all over the place and screaming "Happy New Year!"  Their night was a little bit more eventful than our night.  Andy and I watched a couple of movies at home.   We did manage to stay awake long enough to watch the ball drop.   It was nice and quiet.  Things have been busy the last few weeks so a quiet night at home was perfect.

We made our usual trip to Waco for Christmas.  We came home on Christmas Eve.  We left a few days later to watch Baylor play in the Texas Bowl.  Andy and I flew to Houston on Tuesday night.  His parents picked us up at the airport.  Jenny and Steve drove in the next day.  We had lunch at his cousin's house, and then headed to the game.  Too bad the football team forgot to show up.   Baylor lost the game, but I still had a good time. We left for the airport at 5:30 the next morning. Andy needed to get back to work.  It was a fast trip.

Christmas vacation will be over in just a few days. I am not ready to get back to the real world of homework and afternoons full of driving kids from one activity to the next.  We will have to enjoy the next few days off.

I hope that everyone had a happy and safe New Year.  I can't wait to see what is in store for 2011!
