My first good wish for the New Year from the right coast (thirty minutes of 2007 left here in Nebraska). Happy New Year to you and yours, Karson.

Going to bed . we have 2 grandbabies 18 months old staying with us. My wife and I are babysitting and they normally get up at 5 AM.

We hope to have them broken of that habit by the time Mom comes back.

Happy New Year! Our 17 month old has been asleep since 1900h, and we’re very lucky that he’s been letting us sleep in until 0830h lately…

Best wishes for the new year!!

Hey folks,

Have a great new year. We have about another hour to go. I’m struggling to stay awake with my daughter to ring in the new year! Mot Jr will be awake at 5am as well so tomorrow should be fun!

HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR!!!!!!! I celebrated at midnight, but then went out in the shop to work on an apple wall plaque for mum made out of knotty pine. Like Karson always says.. no picture, didn’t happen.. well here it is (tried to kinda go for a 3d effect)...

Happy New Year to all – I still have 5 1/2 hours left to work tonight, but I will sleep quick and get up to eat with the family, watch some football and go back for another 12 hours. I didn’t have much fun, but I sure saw a lot of people having way too much fun :-)).

May all of 2007’s good times stay ahead of us and all of 2007’s bad times stay in our rear view mirrors.

my son called and woke us up for midnight.. he’s 3 hours behind us so he thought that was very funny.
Of course when I called at 3 Am (his midnight) there was no answer. I got ripped off! :)

Happy New Year.
And I guess Jamie gets the award for the “first woodworking project of 2008”. Well done.

Well the babies slept until until 7:30 but my wife told me she was 3 times in the night looking for binkies.

I didn’t get that duty.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! My resolution for the new year is that I enjoy life more, play hard and work hard, take time to stop and smell the sawdust (I’ll leave the roses to my partner…lol) and laugh more. May the Heaven’s smile upon you and yours and the wood angels sit on all our shoulders! :)
