We decided to stay home and see the New Year in together. Mike and Linz chose the menu and went shopping for snacks which included hot dogs, steak and spiced shrimp. Britt is dancing the night away with Sam to a wonderful orchestra tonight at the Glen Echo Spanish Ballroom. I know they will have fun.
Linz decided to to bake some chocolate chip cookies which were delicious. She loves the ready to bake cookies. :-) When the timer went off when the cookies were done, Linz said, "Last time I burned my hand. How will I get them out of the oven?" Zach was in the kitchen getting a glass of water and without missing a beat we heard him say, "Use the force!". Mike and I almost fell on the floor laughing!! If you know Zach and the fact that he is a "man of few words" and it was both amazing AND hilarious.
Linz then said she needed to take a shower before midnight. When she was done she came back downstairs and we heard her before we saw her........in an outfit she designed all on her own just for the occasion.
What did we hear???
"Yo da lay hee hooooooooooo!!!!!!!"
And this is what we saw....
|Leder Hosen is just perfect for any occasion!|
Linz proclaimed it her "Letter Hosen Happy New Year" outfit. Life just doesn't get much better than this. When we finally stopped laughing and could catch our breath again, Mike looked at me and said, "Well baby, we've had two pretty awesome "autistic moments" to finish out the year, huh? We are really blessed." I have to agree. I'm feeling supremely blessed as we usher out the old and ring in the new.
We wish you all the very happiest of New Years and pray God's richest and most bountiful blessings for you and yours in the coming year.
