Let's hear it for 2013!

Well great,  now that I decide to log in and post some photos I can't get the computer to load my camera card..  Ugh.

Anyhow, we had a nice New Years Eve, we did some shopping and then a friend came over with her kids and we made hats to celebrate the new year.  We had a lot of fun, and the hats came out so nice.  Then we went to our friends house for dinner and to wait until the big countdown.  I was tired but the kids were happily playing with all the other girls there so I tried to chat with the adults.

When the big countdown came we all had some sparkling juice and said happy new year to everyone.  I still can't believe it is 2013.  Wasn't 2013 supposed to be the year for levitating vehicles and teleporting?  The year when everyone looked the same because we had all "melted" together in the melting pot..  It's really an amazing year, I think there is just something about the number 13 that makes it special..  We will never see another 13, and we have never seen one before (well my grandma almost has, as she was born in 1914 - but that is beside the point).

I'm saying some really not kind words to the computer right now as the photos card isn't being read...  how frustrating.

So tomorrow is Adrianne's SEVENTH birthday...  I have her party invites all done and her 'kid' party planned.  I just need to figure out what to do for her 'real' birthday, tomorrow!  I want to get her something special, since her birthday is so close to Christmas she never really gets much.  I know there is a Brave bow and arrow set that she wants - she doesn't need it at all, but I'm sure she would be excited to receive it.  But then comes the logistics of how do I buy it without her knowing??  Maybe I can drive over to the mall tomorrow while she's at school..

Well that's my note for 2013, as you can see I haven't exactly been up-to-date on my posting, but I really would like to be better this year..  That is my one goal - remember every moment..  And my second goal is to turn on that darn Xbox more often..  :)
