Finally, we were lucky enough to find our dog Alex through a pet rescue last January. This was our first Christmas with her here and we are blessed to have such a good dog that won't bite you for putting her in silly outfits like this. (Dogs never forget and I think this is why she jumped up in a chair and stole my breakfast one morning a couple of months after this picture was taken!)
That's it. 2007 was some kind of year. I hope that 2008 will be less crazy but I'm as prepared as I can get. We'll take it one day at a time.
I thought I'd never stay up until midnight tonight, but I did - no one else did in our house. So, I saw Dick Clark again. The first one I remember is 1980. It seemed like such a big deal when 1979 was over - I'm not sure what we expected. 28 years later - still no jet packs - still no tourism to Mars. They are still playing Blondie and the Go Go's on the radio so I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same. Happy 2008!
