We celebrated both birthdays today with a big pot of shrimp gumbo, french bread, birthday cake and ice cream. It was a madhouse for an hour or two, but everyone had a good time.
Now things have settled down to a steady roar and we can ready ourselves for the evening. This first means dropping the two little ones off at their uncle's house for a children's party (gotta love uncles like that) and then maybe a movie and quiet evening for us.
Happy New Year to everyone and may the coming year be the best one of all for all of us!
