Happy New Year!

Well, 2007 is drawing to a close! I hope everyone has a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year! We have no big celebrations planned for tonight. I am going to make cheese and chocolate fondue here at home, and we will probably tune in just in time to watch the ball drop at midnight. Exciting stuff, huh? :-D

We did have a bit of a scare last night. Sarah woke up bawling last night. She screamed and thrashed, and kicked, and nothing we did calmed her down. She wouldn't answer when we asked what was wrong. Finally after about ten or fifteen very long minutes, she calmed down. She still wouldn't tell us what was wrong--if she was sick, in pain, had a bad dream, or whatever. She held her Scooby Doo (thanks, Uncle Dave!) and chatted for a few minutes, then asked to go back to bed. She was sleeping peacefully after a few minutes, and she slept in late this morning.

Best we can figure, she had a night terror last night. A bit different from a nightmare, night terrors are more frightening for the person having to watch (I'll second that!). My mother says I had them frequently as a child, and they do seem to be somewhat hereditary. :-p But at any rate, we all survived, and Sarah is perfectly fine today. We are going to get out in a bit for some fresh air and gift card spending. Nelson is thinking of using his gift card to purchase a new camera to replace the broken one, so you may have fresh new blog pics real soon! :)
