Now I have something to be merry about! Ava and Lori are visiting me for 5 days! They just returned from Costa Rica (Ava is getting to be quite the traveler - she already has her own passport!) and they are making a stopover here in Florida to spend the New Year holiday with me.
So, time to dust off the champagne glasses. Ava loves to stay up late, drink "champagne" (ginger ale in fancy glasses), and watch the ball drop. I'm happy they're here. I'm glad I can ring in 2009 with my two favorite people nearby.
