Happy New Year!

I'm a little early, but I do hope everyone has a wonderful New Year. 2007 was pretty superfantastic, so we'll see if 2008 matches. I have so much to be grateful for. Emiko came along in 2007, and she's definitely the greatest thing that's ever happened to me!

It's a good thing she's so awesome and adorable, because she gave us a hard time in LA. She still has a bit of a cold, and she's pretty congested. She'll cough and cough and sometimes she gets choked up and it makes her throw up. So I've been getting thrown up on a lot this week. The worst was on the airplane on the way home from LA -- on my birthday, no less. We were about 30 minutes into the flight, and Emiko was sleeping in my arms. All was going well. Then she started coughing in her sleep. All of a sudden she started throwing up. All over me. I had to just laugh because what else could I do? She got me good. Thank God I was wearing a sweater with a hood -- it caught the brunt of it. So I didn't smell too bad the rest of the way home.

Of course, then she decided to poop and I had to change her in the airplane bathroom. There's no changing table in there! I had to put her on the toilet seat. She screamed at the top of her lungs the entire time. It was awesome!

After that, things were calmer and we made it home. I was really glad to be home. LA was nice, and kinda warm, but it's nice to be home for the holidays. Next year we're not traveling.

Eat some black eyed peas tomorrow for good luck in 2008. And cheer for my Razorbacks in the Cotton Bowl. My dad's actually in Dallas for the game. Maybe that will result in a victory. My Hogs have a poor record when it comes to bowl games.

Here's wishing you much joy and happiness in 2008!

Happy New Year to you, Todd, and sweet Emiko!

Let's just pretend the Cotton Bowl never happened, shall we?

I'm all for that. That game was a nightmare! My dad was actually there -- I think he jinxed us!
