We'll Take a Cup of Kindness Yet

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet For auld lang syne

Here's a blast from the past. Mark and I weren't even engaged yet. Here we are with his brother and his wife along with our good friend and our future son's namesake.
Skip ahead a mere 6 years. Here we are at our house in Madison with our little guy, just 2 weeks shy of his 1st birthday. We all had the flu that day.

In Madison, 2006

Last year we rang in the new year at Mark's parent's place on top of Mt. Zubba Bubba in TN. Sophie had joined the family but slept through the festivities.

New Year's Eve 2008. We made our own party at home last night complete with games, silly hats, noise makers, glow bracelets, snacks, and New Year's Rockin Eve. Can't wait till next year when Maybe joins us. This morning I looked at the calendar and realized that she's due on Mother's Day. And just maybe next year, I'll enjoy some of my favorite Andre's pink champagne instead of Diet 7 Up with Pomegranate (though that's pretty good too).

My how things have changed...
Happy New Year!
