So perfect, MamaB! We talked last night about how we would make every effort to make 08 slow down, so we could enjoy every minute of it - as opposed to 07, which flew by. So this e-card was so very wonderful!
So, now it's off for a Mimosa to ring in the New Year with a little O.J. (See, Cedar? We're getting our fruit allowance!)
Happy New Year to all!
