new year

Here's a photo of Kell and I ringing in the New Year in 2000.

Kell loved New Year's Eve, and no matter what else was going on in her life, always made an effort to spend it with her close family and friends. When we were little, we would gather across the street at Joyce Douglas's house for new years. I can still remember watching the adults eat Joyce's famous Rum Balls (which, by the way, may have been more rum than anything else!) and crowding around the TV to watch the ball drop at midnight. It remains hard to believe that this is already the second year that Kell hasn't been with us. That she never lived to see the New Year in 2005 or 2006 still brings tears to my eyes.

New Years Eve over the years, has been an evening of great times with people who we love. Family and friends. I think back on all of the fun we have had in years gone by. We have been richly blessed by all the wonderful people that we have known.
