Man oh man oh man......New Year's Eve! I spent the night out on the town with Rachel. Scott is in LA for the Rose Bowl. We went to dinner with a couple of old friends from TWU. Then we headed to the bar in Ballard. We got front row seats at the bar and started the drinking. The music was a blast. The crowd was crazy. The night was fun. Counting down to midnight.....and then we ran for the door. It took us about 10 minutes to hunt down a cab. We raced back across the bridge but too late. Stuck in the Space Needle traffic forever. I ended up sharing my cab with 6 drunk kids from UW. We played an electronic "Password" game while we waited in traffic. I got home at 1:30am. After texting everyone and dressing the cat up I went to bed. Happy New Year!

Christmas morning started early with the customary barking of Owen. After breakfast we sat around opening gifts. Sue cooked all morning. Katie knitted. Scott and I loafed.

In the afternoon, Gammie and Joe came over for dinner. We ate prime rib and yorkshire pudding. We had a nice quiet dinner. Then, more presents and fancy cake that Sue had made.

We left as the sun began to set. It was time to get back to Seattle so I could work in the morning!

Merry Christmas everyone!

It's a quick Christmas this year. I have to work the day after so we are doing it all in less than two days.

Today was our celebration with Ralph, Karen and Zach. We went over to their house to open presents. Afterward we drove to Karen's Mom's house to join them in their dinner and celebration.

I got Kerwin a new hat.

This is the only sign that Christmas is near. We've decided not to decorate this year. Since I am working 60 hour weeks the entire month of December. And, Kerwin seemed to hate the tree last year. It's simpler and requires a lot less work.

I think I will miss it a bit. However, there is always next year to put up a tree...
