We arrived at the party to find out that the mom had found lice in her daughters' hair thirty minutes before the party started. We didn't see the daughter at all and we only saw the mom for a few seconds. My head has been a little itchy ever since. The power of suggestion is strong. We definitely don't want lice.
One of the moms that was there went in to labor that night, soon after the party, and had the first baby of the year in our local hospital. It was some party.
Benjamin and I went home and played games in front of the fire and then toasted in the new year with some sparkling grape juice. We have lots of goals for the new year and we are excited what it will bring. In 2011 we moved into our beautiful, Benjamin started his second year of work, I started teaching Spanish at the Montessori school, Bee turned three, I successfully taught Seminary for the most of the entire year, our car hung in there for the year (and hopefully for a few more), we made new friends, had great memories, took several trips, had lots of visitors, enjoyed good health, ate well (hence the need for repeat weight loss goals from last year), and have settled our family for now. Here's to a great 2012.
