How are you today?
I am fine, though very tired because we went to a party Saturday night and I am still tired. That's how lame I am. I stay out until 11:30 one night and 48 hours later I am still wrecked.
The party was to celebrate our dear friends Carola and Horacio who became American citizens last week. There was dancing, and merriment and good cheer.
They have completely adopted American humor.
Our pal Geoff led us in a sing along of Neil Diamond's "Coming to America".
Geoff felt that they could not call themselves real Americans until they had sampled that uniquely American delicacy- the twinkie.
They were game!
We also learned a few things about our own family.
Rebecca looks about sixteen when she wears her contacts. Yikes!
Lily can do this crazy hip hop helicopter dance move! (Big shout out to Lauren at the Dance Place who is Lily's hip hop teacher! Holy moly, the kid rocked!)
We also learned that I love holding sleeping babies. (Shout out to Carlene and Geoff for making such a sweet baby and sharing him with me!)
The most important thing we learned is actually something we already knew.
That we are blessed to have so many friends and so much love in our life.
Congratulations again to our newest and most favorite citizens. America is better for having you.
