Face the Facts: It's 2009

Welcome to the last year of the "Oh" decade. It's almost over, and I don't think we've really figured out what to call it.

Anyway, 2008 was full of all kinds of ups and downs. I won't bore you with the details - that's what the archive is for. For our family, we ended the year on the ups, and hope that 2009 continues the positive trend.

We had a fun and exciting New Years Eve party. I didn't even think to get out the camera.

Kara and I did a puzzle. We played a 10-round game of Mario Party. Then we watched The God's Must Be Crazy. It's an interesting psychological phenomenon.

Then we opened the sparkly cider, waited 2 minutes for the clock to switch over to 12:00, said "Happy New Year," and took off for bed. Yippee.

It's about all the excitement I can handle these days. Maybe we'll roar our way into 2010.

I LOVE God Must Be Crazy--it's a great film and I think maybe you used up all your energy with 2 trips to sea world--I'm certain your kids aren't complaining :-)

Josi - It's a love it or hate it movie, and somehow I'm not surprised to find you in the "love it" camp.

My kids love the movie, too, so there were no complaints around here.

Sounds fun! 3 of my 4 kids stayed up past midnight. I also love The Gods Must Be Crazy.

Love that movie. And you are a partier. I was in bed by 10:30. Man I'm getting old
