For no reason other than it makes me happy and makes me smile... and I'm willing to carry that through the next 365. I'm ready for '08 to be over! I'm ready for some (more) changes 'round here!!
We'll kick it off tonight with could-be-upwards of 25 people 'round a New Year's Eve bonfire, complete with fireworks*, sparklers, sparkling grape juice (no NYE is complete without it at our house), mulled cider, Katie's favorite and getting-to-be-famous Tortilla Wraps, and lots of other food and drink... but mostly, it will be complete with family and friends.
*If I can find 'em, otherwise the "poppers" I mistakenly bought at Target will have to do, though Mom said that she has sparklers and DH was going to see if there was any life in the years-old bottle rockets he recently unearthed. There's nothin' like fireworks in the snow.
