10 years ago today......

We had just told Sam's parents we were expecting and were about to share the news with my family. That may not seem monumental but you have to understand....these were people who had given up hope of ever having grandchildren....Needless to say they were very excited!

Because I worked then (and still do now) at a place where children live, we had been frantically developing disaster plans and putting together emergency kits in case the worst scenario happened for Y2K. I even put together an emergency kit at home which Sam relentlessly taunted me about. So much so that when he brought home a box to put all of our supplies in, he sarcastically wrote on the outside, "Y2K...ONLY OPEN IN CASE OF EMERGENCY". All those hours of work and worry and then nothing happened!

I remember watching as the new millenium was celebrated around the world and then enjoyed celebrating it here complete with our 2000 light-up glasses and some awesomely huge fireworks that we shot off in my parents' front yard.
It really was a New Year's celebration I will never forget!
Leave a comment and tell me what you were doing!!

HAPPY 2010!!!!

I just read this blog entry. I was doing much the same thing as you, except I was on the receiving news that you were going to have a baby. I remember the 2000 glasses and the fireworks as well. It was the beginning of a WONDERFUL year!

I was actually in the hospital having McKellyn! Had to cancel a New Year's eve party that I was hosting because she was early! Now every New Year's Eve is a special night at our house, and we have the perfect excuse to get out of anything we don't want to attend!
