On New Year's Eve we went to a dinner party with a Frenchman, aRussian, a Brazilian, and an Italian. A couple of Mormons walked inand said, "If you can think of a good joke, let me know." No really,we went to a dinner party with some friends and thier kids. Elora wasmesmorized by the plasma screen displaying baby tv.
When we went home we brought out the sparklers we found in the cellarand decided to try them out. Elora was super excited by the sparklyfire, but didn't want to hold them. I didn't want to hold them either,because they wouldn't light until burned halfway down... Elora liked to shout Happy New Year!
At midnight we looked out our windows and could see fireworks shooting
off all over the city. It was really beautiful. You can buy huge
fireworks to shoot off here, and everyone seemed to be enjoying it! I
can't believe the kids slept through the hour-plus long booming.
