Happy New Year! (at 8 pm)

It seems like we hardly ever make it to midnight anymore on New Year's Eve. In fact, we don't even have a set time we are counting down to. This year, when we were ready to start winding down for bed, we googled a fireworks show from earlier in the night (in London, where midnight had already come and gone) and put it on the TV. The kids donned party hats and grabbed a balloon and popper. Our decorations were pretty meager since my mom and I had procrastinated until 5 pm on New Year's Eve to try and find some, and by then, all we could find were Valentine's decorations! By despite our unorthodox celebration, everyone had a good time and we loved spending the evening with our extended family in California.
