Happy New Year!

The most rewarding about the end of last year and start of this New Year was/is spending it with my mother and brother and waking up with my great-niece Brielle (she’s three) who made it to midnight to yell into the phone “Happy New Year Daddy!”

As kids, we were to be able to watch the fireworks from our parents upstairs bedroom window. Now the trees are mature and blocks any view. However, from the kitchen window we had a clear view of the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower fireworks and a little of what was going on Downtown as well.

Brielle was very excited to see the fireworks through the window and on TV. The more she anticipated the next pop of color, the more enthusiastic she became and the tighter she squeezed as I held her.  It was magical.

Welcome 2013. It’s going to be a great year.
