Happy New Year 2011

There was a mini New Year Countdown celebration just a stone's throw (less than 100m!) from our apartment. Since the little girl was still wide awake (as always), I brought her down just to catch the fireworks. I hope she enjoyed it, the same way she likes sensory time in school.

This is her second time seeing fireworks. Her 1st time was during the end of 2008.

It was at the edge of the neighboring town, but still good enough to view after a short stroll. May was asleep and I was covering the night shift. Vera was having a string of late nights back then. Instead of continuing to try to rock her to sleep, I decided that it was something she shouldn't miss. No doubt, she seemed more excited at that time.

In case u are wondering, May and Daen were both knocked out by 9pm after his last feed. Too bad. Maybe we'll try harder to wake them up... next year. :-P
