Closing the door on 2008...Griffen style!

We celebrated the New Year with a late night of Monopoly and fizzy grape juice. At 12:00 we went outside to blow horns and watch fireworks. Blaine pulled the door shut, just as I asked, "Is that unlocked?" Well, we are the Griffens. OF COURSE, it's locked!!

Macy and Reily were inside asleep. It was getting a tad bit chilly. But, I have a spare key in the car and luckily for everyone, I am irresponsible and leave the door unlocked. Unluckily for everyone, Daddy was the last one to drive the car; and he is responsible.

After, 2 1/2 hours, 2 neighbors, and a "slim-jim", we were able to break into our car and get the key.

Needless to say, we are grateful for kind neighbors and their warm house, a safe and secure house, and a fairly safe car...

Happy new year!!

Wow, glad you weren't locked out in New England! It's been super cold. 6 degrees on NYE! Love the Christmas card photo. So cool, you should frame it!

That is one memorable New Years Eve. Cold and ready to be inside. We got locked out this summer - me and the kids, but at least it wasn't in the middle of the night in the cold. I am glad you made it in and I am glad you have a beautiful memory!
