Happy New Year 2008 !!!

So the girls and their families decided to start a new family tradition for New Years Eve by suggesting that they ALL party at our house and then spend the night! We blew up 8 air mattresses and made beds on the sofas and extra cushions. Dennis heated up the jacuzzi and a few of us took an afternoon dip on New Years Day. Someone decided that we also start another new tradition that on the first day of the year we all jump in the FREEZING pool and then get back into the jacuzzi. After Jason took the first plunge, the boys followed and not to be out done, all the girls jumped in too. I have had a few brain freezes in my life from drinking shakes too fast, but they did not compare to the terrible head ache that followed immediately after plunging into that COLD water. It took all I had to get out of that pool and back into the 102 degree water of the hot tub. The pain went away fast though, and an all-over refreshing feeling followed. It was fun after all. Hope this new year brings all things good for you and your families!
