50 Great Goals for the New Year, New Year Wishes

Happy New Year!
We made it to midnight again this year. Jordie has always fallen asleep but this year she managed to stay up because she has always wanted to see "the ball drop". When it finally did, she looked at us and asked why it didn't crash to the ground. We told her it just slowly lowers. Yep...she was not impressed and probably won't bother next year. A crashing ball would have been much more fun!
She gave me a book called Be Happy, full of quotes she knows I will love. Here is one for the new year: "Make each day your masterpiece" Coach John Wooden
