My mom and dad with Sarah and Mitch
My parents took my husband, eldest daughter and me out to a wonderful dinner for New Year's Eve. Sarah took my breath away all dressed up-- she is growing up so fast! She wore my 30-something sister's shoes with (very low) heels! She had a choice of prime rib or salmon for dinner and she chose the salmon. She told us it tasted like the sunrise. We definitely saw the young woman beginning to emerge tonight. It was an evening I won't forget for a long, long time and it was the perfect way to ring in the New Year.
In a true "Real Mom" moment, I had planned to wear a very nice, shiny shirt that I've only worn once before on my birthday. I planned ahead and didn't put it on until minutes before we left (to avoid a baby and kid accident) only to realize once it was on that there was HUGE stain right in the center of the shirt! ARGH!
