Christmas morning wasn't as lively as usual. Maura's parents were really sweet and bought me a new outfit...the Sparkly Tunic outfit! Isn't it great? I'd been wanting it for the longest time, and it really was nice of them to buy it for me.
So what I am doing for New Year's Eve 2008? I think I'm just going to sit under un grand sapin de Noel (the large Christmas tree) with a good book. I'll probably turn the TV on as 2009 gets closer and get my noisemakers ready. It'll be a blast to ring in the new year, even if I'm still used to ringing in the new year with France.
So Happy New Year, my friends!
