As much as we missed welcoming the new year with our parents (who will be home this coming Thursday- Wee!), we celebrated no less as we were together with family (both by blood and affinity). The kids watched a marathon of movies (Wall-E and Chicken Little) before the countdown and enjoyed a few sparklers, praising God for the grace-filled year that was and hopeful for an even fruitful 2009.
Our family headed to my sister and her hub’s house (the main house in our compound) and greeted each other happy new year with a kiss. It is just fun being with family and loved ones and we just had to capture the moment with this shot – our very first picture for the year 2009. 😀
