New Year's Eve 2007

We slept in because we arrived home late on the 30th. (Our plan had been to spend the night in the mountains on the 30th and go sledding the next day in Breckenridge. A big snowstorm with lots of wind blew in and all the roads were closed--so we just went home.)

We had breakfast/lunch. Then we met Matt and Maija downtown at Guiseppe's restaurant for some wonderful pizza. It's a tradition--whenever we're all together in Colorado Springs, we have to have pizza at Guiseppe's.

On to the movie theater, where we took in National Treasure. It was a good movie, fun and adventurous. Also, of note: the preview for Prince Caspian. Yes, sirree. May 16: the two of us will be there!

Then we split up: Ian, Tanta Dace and I home for naps; Mom and Dad and Matt and Maija to a couple parties their church friends are throwing.

Once we were all home again, we played a game together: Apples to Apples. It was fun.

We broke at 11:45 to pour champagne, put shoes on, and get ready for the countdown, the ball drop, and the toasting and the hugging. Then outside to see the fireworks on top of Pikes Peak, and back inside for photos.

Happy New Year to you all!
