Happy New Year everyone!
Ugh...it's been the stinker to bring in the New Year sick as a dog. Seems like I held off through the Christmas holidays with Arlin and Chad being sick, nursed them both back to health and then my poor body collapsed.
We were scheduled to hang out with our good friends Joel and Kirk for the New Year, but Joel was under the weather too (it must be in the air) so, we stayed close to home and headed over to the local pub on Pearl Street and had an early dinner.
The table next to us had a 15 month old little girl named "Stella" in a high chair about 4 feet away from the Captain...it was hysterical to watch him goo over her. At first, I think he was confused with everyone calling her Stella...(that's not my sister??!!!)
He squawked just enough to get the family's attention and boy he laid on the smiles to miss Stella! Stella's big brother came over to our table and gave Arlin a party hat and toy to celebrate with everybody. Here are a few pictures we got of the Captain.
Chad and I barely stayed awake for the ball to drop and were fast asleep minutes after. The Captain was in la la land dreaming...maybe next year he'll see the ball drop to bring in the New Year!
Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2009!!!
