Our New Year's Eve plans for the past decades have been stay at home, watch TV, and if we could stay awake....watch the "ball" come down in New York!!
This year was different. I saw a brochure for a "New Years Eve" Street celebration in Old Town Monrovia. Family friendly, live music, stores and restaurants open and the countdown at midnight with the "rising of the ball".
Julie, our second daughter, the mom of Amanda, Monica, Nick and Jon spent the evening with me. We dressed the part, and laughed, ate at Rudy's Mexican Cafe and enjoyed the festivities.
She is already making plans for us to go to the Rose Bowl Parade next year. Oh dear...what have I gotten myself into.
Happy New Year.....I'll see you next year!!
