We had the Jorgenson's over for a New Year's Eve celebration. As much as we all tried to convince the kids to celebrate 'New Year's in New York' (ie. celebrate the new year at 9 pm our time - which is midnight in NYC, of course) they insisted on ringing it in on local time. So, after five hours of eating muchies and playing games (the most "fun" of which was trying the "Insanity Hot Sauce" Braiden bought in San Diego), they popped poppers in the living room and lit sparklers in the front yard. The grownups were just happy to finally be able to go to sleep.
And I just thought I'd share one of my new year's resolutions: to read from The Book of Mormon each day in addition to all the other reading I'll be doing this year. Following is an inspirational testimony by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland about it.
Happy New Year.
