Happy New Year!

We had such a fun time on New Year's Eve (thanks, Jen & Ken!) that it was difficult to get up this morning. Of course the Banana was up at 7:30 like always, but the other kids needed some encouragement. We woke Miss M at 9:30, not wanting her to sleep too late because she goes back to school tomorrow already. The boys were still asleep at 11:00 so we went in to get them up when we put Banana down for her nap. As usual, Big D got right out of bed and got dressed, ready for another day. C.B., however, ignored our request to arise and continued snoozing. At NOON, Dad went in to physically remove him from his bed. Since he was still not showing any signs of consciousness, Dad decided to take C.B. outside for the chilly morning air...I mean afternoon wake him up. He didn't flinch, didn't shiver, didn't protest. Dad laid him on the deck, thinking that would surely cause him to stir.

But there was still no response.

None whatsover.

Until Dad suggested that the pitcher of cold water he was holding might do the trick.

That got him up in a hurry.

And by 12:30 he was raring to go, ready to start a whole new year. We hope it's a good one for all of you, too!
