Our New Years eve plans were supposed to be simple and quiet. I was still not feeling great I didn't want a huge party. I just wanted my kids around. I wanted a New Years Eve like we used to have in the 'old' days. I thought we would sit and watch a series of movies and then stop and toast at midnight. While dad and mom were out shopping to the proper midnight/movie marathon snacking we got a phone call . . . and then some pictures from home.
