Welcome 2009! I didn't get to take any pictures of New Years Eve or New Years Day. I was busy taking care of Madison, she awoke New Years Eve with an ear ache and then that evening she didn't sleep very well - so early New Years day I took her to the Doctor in Modesto where my parents live, and so we were there for half the day - she is doing fine. But the boys and the cousins had a great time with sparklers and poppers, and the kids rang in the New Year New York time - 9pm. When the kids were all settled in there sleep over the big kids played games and awaited the real midnight hour - it was a lot of fun!
