And I got to sing the National Anthem at the dinner where Rudy was awarded the Pete DuPont Individual Freedom Award!
For anyone who is curious, Soon to be Hubby and I are FULLY SUPPORTING the idea that Rudy is the Republican's BEST CHANCE at winning in 2008! This guy is a fantastic speaker - and so equolently explained many issues (I won't go into a political discussion about Iraq or immigration), but I was particularly happy when Rudy spoke about school vouchers. The best way to get a hand up is to get your kid a good education. You can't do that if your local public school isn't doing their job and you, as a parent, cannot afford a private school. While Rudy was Mayor, some good citizens of NYC got together and promised to give 2500 public school students a chance to go to private school on full scholarships. 167,000 applications were turned in for these 2500 spots. Seems to me that those numbers alone prove that there are 167,000 parents in NYC that want something better for their kids than what the public schools are offering.
I only took at few photos at the event, so I had Soon to be Hubby do a quick snap shot of me upon returning home.
Soon to be Hubby and I didn't take very many photos this New Year's Eve, however we had a wonderful dinner at the Back Burner in Hockessin with Soon to be Hubby's Mom. When I tried to take dinner photos, we realized that the batteries were dead on the camera. Oh well, after a very filling dinner, Soon to be Hubby and I rang in the new year from our couch wearing pjs :-) At least we got dressed up for dinner :-)
While playing with toys, Loki discovered that the Christmas tree provides a special hideout. Soon to be Hubby and I realized something was wrong when Soon to be Hubby saw the entire tree shake from upstairs. We no longer encourage Loki to play underneath the Christmas tree :-)
FYI - Loki and Egg are still sticking their heads into the stockings. I guess that they are hoping that Santa will visit again and put additional treats into those stockings!
