Happy New Year!

Ringing in the New Year
One of my best friends, Baylee

Michelle, Me, Laura, Elyse, and Baylee
Bucky and I had a great New Year's with some of our friends. I have the best Bunco group. It is made of Phi Mu's, work friends, and some that have joined along the way. These people mean so much to Bucky and me. We always have fun together. I was kind of excited because we NEVER do anything for New Year's Eve. We went to Arricia at the Auburn Conference Center. They had delicious appetizers and a 5 course meal. We had so much fun. None of us made it until midnight though.
I had called to check on Claire around 9:00 and my Mom said she went to bed with no problems. We got home around 11:30 and I went to check on her like I always do. My Mom was rocking her and said she had been up for about an hour. Poor Mom and Claire! I don't know if her teeth woke her up or if she got stuck in her crib. She was awake so I got her back to sleep after about 30 minutes. I was getting ready for bed and the power went out. It is pitch black. Our monitors didn't work and I was afraid Claire would get cold, so I went and got her. Of course, she was confused and it took her a little while to go back to sleep in our bed. She slept pretty good until about 4:30am. I think when she woke up and couldn't see anything, she got upset. Bucky turned the flashlight on and that calmed her down but she didn't go back to sleep. So, we all got up and went to the den. We lit some candles and sat by the fire. As soon as I had gotten her back to sleep, the power came on. Thank goodness! I put her back in her crib and Bucky and I went back to bed. We got up a few hours later. My sweet Mom played with Claire all morning while I tried to get moving. She went to sleep around 10 and has been asleep for almost 3 hours. Bless her! She is going to be off her schedule today.
Hope everyone had a Happy New Year. We are excited to see what 2009 brings for the Street family!

Looks like you had a fun time w/ your friends. Sounds like a rought night w/ Claire though... I hate it when the power goes out b/c it causes Natalie to wake right up from the dead silence.
