Miss you lots. Sorry you are sad. Let me know if I can help in any way even if it is just to make to make you smile :) Not that this helps but we had plans for new year's eve, the whole fam, to meet some friends with their kids for dinner and playtime. So all the kids took naps so they could stay up late. When "G" woke up she had a fever of over 102 degrees, UGH, so Mitch had to stay home with her. The new year sucks so far and this does not give me hope for 2008. Let's be blue together...

Happy New Year Lauren (and Jon & Noah too)! Good luck with all of those resolutions, there are some interesting ones in there. I'll have to sit down and think about some of my own. If you go to SF, you'd better have a layover in Denver. :)
