The Little Joggers will try to stay up until midnight. The girls will make it. I was under the impression that the medium Little Jogger hasn't made it, yet, but the kids assure me that he made it last year. The littlest Little Jogger doesn't have much of a chance, but I don't think that he cares that much.
This year, we have a non-standard form of New Year's Eve entertainment. The Packers are playing the Bears on Sunday Night Football. The game doesn't mean anything to the standings. The Bears are in the playoffs and the Packers are out, win or lose. But it's Packers/Bears, so it's important. The oldest and newest Little Jogger has been teasing me this year by rooting for the Bears, which is smart in the short run, since they are having abetter season, but not so smart in the long run, since she'll be left out of my will.
No big excitement this year. We've never been much for parties, and when you have young kids, there aren't a lot of places to go. We'll just quietly watch the new year come in.
