Here's to a better 2012!

Tonight we carried on a family tradition of making predictions for the coming year. This was a tradition in my family growing up, and has been fun for Elliott, the kids, and me, as well.


The first thing we do is read the predictions from the previous year. Last year, we had just returned from a trip to Sundance where everyone was extremely sick (strep throat, ear infections, broken ankles, bum knees...) when we made our predictions. Sadly, several of us picked up a bug while we were in UT again this year. Here is Sophie holding a bowl that has seen lots of use today while Elliott read out her prediction from 2011:


"I won't be sick."

Hmmm, looks like poor little Sophie missed the mark. I hope she's better by now!

So sorry about those who picked up the bug. Not fun and not a fin way to end the special time of the year. Hopefully Sophie's prediction will come true and "I won't be sick" comes true.
