Happy New Year!

Not your average sparkler.

In Germany we celebrate the New Year with fireworks.  They are everywhere and it's loud and so beautiful to behold. 

I think the sparkler was as big as she was.

 When the clock strikes 12 there is suddenly a display of lights all over the night sky.  It's such an amazing experience that we even let our little ones stay up to share it with us.  What a wonderful way to welcome in the New Year. 

I wish you all a year filled with promise and hope and lots of reasons to celebrate.
