Happy New Year!

We ushered in the New Year with a New Year's Eve trip to the Zilker Tree. The tree is an Austin favorite that I went to as a little girl - an enormous tree made of lights that you can stand under, or even better, twirl under until you are practically sick or fall down. It's a good time.

We felt a bit like we were coming full circle because a trip to the tree was one of the first things we did when we all moved here last year. But, at that time, Ana was threatening to "kick you in the eye" to kids because she was so nervous and anxious from the move. Last night it was so wonderful to see her spinning and laughing, with no threats in sight. In fact, she even made a new friend:

Samantha: What's your name?

Ana: AnastasiaBrittonBogle

Samantha: What did you say?

Ana: AnastasiaBrittonBogle

Samantha: What?

Ana: AnastasiaBrittonBogle

Samantha: I'll just call you, Hey!

Ana: Okay. What's your name?

Samantha: Samantha. Wanna play?

Ana: Of course!

And off they ran. It was a beautiful thing.

Happy New Year!
