Happy New Year! (and a glimpse into the future)

New Year’s Eve…9:00pm…

Jaime: It’s almost the new year! Let’s toast to this wonderful year that we’ve had!

(Pours champagne for the grown ups, sparkling grape juice for the girls.)

Cate: Mommy!  What is this?!  What does it taste like?!  Are you sure we can drink it? I don’t know. I don’t think I can drink it!

Corey: It’s just grape juice, sweetie.  Just bubbly grape juice.

Cate: Bubbly grape juice!? What?! I’ve never had bubbly grape juice before!  Ummm… (smells it)….I don’t know… What will it taste like?!

Anna:  I’ll drink it.  🙂  (Gulps a big drink. For a split second makes a little face because she’s not sure of the bubbles.) But immediately says, “I like it!”

Anna: Cate! Try it! It’s good. I like it!

Cate: You drank it, Anna?!  I don’t know. What will it taste like? Ok. I’ll take a little drink, but I don’t know.  Ok. Just a little try.  (Takes a teeny tiny sip) Yuck. I don’t like that. I’m not drinking that. Mommy, can I have some water?

Anna: Well, I like it. I want some more!

Jaime: (Get’s Cate water). Okay, now let’s toast to this year!  🙂

Anna drinks some more. Cate says, “Anna! Not too much, Anna!  You’re drinking too fast!”

So…like I said… Happy New Year! And…can anyone else see our daughters at a party, say, 15 or 20 years from now?  Yep, us too.
