Hey Everybody! Happy 2011!
So did you start your new year off with a bang? We sure did! Sound asleep in our little beds. :) When we were kissing Mom and heading off to bed at our normal times, Mom playfully griped that she had raised a bunch of fuddy-duddy children. But who wants to do something while the whole rest of the world is doing it simultaneously? Take NY square for example, why would you want to go there when you know that's where everybody is headed? I prefer to do things sporadically, in my own time and way. Maybe it's the rebel in me, but I find it to be much more fun when we teenagers randomly end up staying up late for no reason at all, just because we're having fun doing something with each other and we don't want it to end. Knowing that we're still awake, giggling and having fun while the world sleeps is much more exciting than being awake and drowsy while the rest of the world is all awake too. I don't care if you like staying up, I just love the way I spent my New Year's evening: curled up in a comfy arm chair with Johnny reading The Magician's Nephew (Narnia 1) aloud to him. We read half the book in one sitting! And in the room next to us, Theresa and Lizzy were taking turns reading aloud from my book, while in the loft Annie and Donna were head to head reading an intense story of Little Bear. Then, at bedtime, we all hugged and kissed each other goodnight and as I was snuggling down cozy into my comforter, I felt glad that we were a family of fuddy-duddy's with just a random touch of sporadic parties in us. :)
