We're a late family anyway, so keeping the kids up until midnight was not remotely hard. We went downtown where they hold a New Year's concert every year. This year we had the pleasure of a Rolling Stones cover band. "Mick Jagger" alone was worth the price of admission. (It was free.)

Happy new year!
