Out With a Bang!

Our Sugar-Sugar saw her first fireworks last night. But before she did, she had to get all bundled up. She was so bundled, she couldn't move her arms. She was not happy about having all those clothes and hats on.

Here she is with Mitch before going outside.


Isn't this a funny picture? She looks like the kid off "A Christmas Story" (Ralphie's brother, Randy) who couldn't move once his mom bundled him in his snow suit.


There was a bonfire and a heater outside to keep us warm. Sara Madalin liked the fire. She watched it more than anything else. I don't think she's ever seen a fire before.

We lit a few sparklers and she'd look at them, then look at the fire, then back at the sparkler.


She watched a few of the fireworks. She didn't cry while they were going off. But when they'd stop, she'd whine a little until the next set started. It was bed time and she was getting hungry, so she didn't stay outside too long. She and I went inside, finished her bottle and played for a little while before she went to sleep. 

This next picture was not from last night. It was a picture of me and Reagan last year at the home of our friends, Jimmy and Renee. There were no pictures of me and Reagan last night. We were all focused on Sara Madalin. It's true what everyone says, a baby changes everything - even who makes it into the pictures. 

Happy New Year everybody!
