Out With The Old

One of the advantages of having kids is that you don't have to force yourself into having a fun-packed night out on New Year's Eve. You can stay in without worrying about whether you're just an old stick in the mud.

So we stayed in tonight with Louie and Isaac, drinking and eating. Tom was out somewhere smoking cigars.

I was going to say that I hope 2010 is a better year for us than 2009. But up until the problems we had in October, Shannon and I had a great year last year. And even with what happened to Maggie, it wasn't all bad after October. It just wasn't what we expected. Or wanted.

A Happy New Year to you all.


  1. Hi Paul and Shannon,
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year
    With lots of love,

    PS In true New Year style I've been making plans and chucking out the old. No more myspace or twitter (except for The Project) but my hotmail is still the same.

  2. Here's to a happy and healthy 2010, with Maggie making steady progress and spending it much more alert & bouncy, just like her sis Alice. And to Alice doing just as well as she is now.
    For you, here's to less stress, more tolerance, and lost and lots of warmth and love. Family is everything...
    Love, Wini, Bert & Analou

  3. Alice is looking like she thinks her big brother Isaac is one of the coolest. I bet it was so great to have all the kids together at once.

    Here's to a Happy New Year and much progress making. Tickets bought! I'll see you in a few weeks!
