Happy New Year!

We rang in the New Year by celebrating Jason's 25th birthday. Sonny planned out a spectacular party complete with games and we had enough junk food to feed a small army. Everyone managed to stay awake until midnight--except Samantha. Poor girl, she missed her first new year's eve. I slept in super late and took a nap on New Years day to prepare myself for the nighttime football marathon (daytime in the states). Wu and I fought sleep all night to catch the action--Daren had a nice attempt, but snoozed through most of them. The most exciting game was definitely Michigan/Florida. I must confess that I actually cheered for the Wolverines. My animosity towards Florida has grown quite large after last year. Plus, as I explained to Wu, it's not like the big bad maize and blue is much of a threat anymore. Saddest game? The Rainbow Warriors...I would have loved to have seen them topple Georgia!
