We spent the evening with friends until a New York Midnight
and returned home for our own party.
The boys were given 3 sparklers.
The first one was to think of something sad or disappointing for 2015.
As they waved their sticks around, they shouted to the wind.
The second sparkler was for a triumph for the year.
What they mentioned were current happiness.
They lived in the immediate moment.
Lastly we asked them to think of things they hoped for 2016.
They said sweet things like accomplish a goal they have together
and to have our family matched through adoption.
We are looking forward to 2016 with all of its hoped for blessings!
