This year our new years plans got changed due to the stomach bug lingering. Instead, we just hung out as our own little family of 5. All the kids stayed up until midnight , even Brendan made it! We counted down together, banged pots and pans and bowls inside and outside of and screamed happy new year as loud as we could! The kids had sparkling grape juice in real grown up glasses and toasted to a new year! By the way, in the pictures Aidan is wearing a shirt we found in all the fabric my late grandma gave me. He feels special knowing it came from his great grandma and is something that she made.
