Fah-reeti A-Lake ! This is how we say Happy New Year in our family! This is a botched phonetic spelling of Lebanese Arabic (sorry to all you purists out there). It's tradition to be the first one to say it to your relatives-you win a dollar if you beat them to the punch. So, you all owe me a dollar (Louis accepts cash, checks, pay pal....)

Louis rang in the new year in traditional Gillian style-- asleep... he thought the party was going to start at 4am and was getting his beauty sleep. Luckily, his Sittee (grandma) was here to party with so Mom handed him off to Sittee and went back to bed! Alas, Sittee left today to go back to Charleston so Louis will have to curb his party lifestyle.
In 2006, Louis resolves to break the 7 lb mark and learn to sit up while Dad wants to graduate and Mom merely wants to fit back into her fat jeans! Happy New Year everyone!! Posted by Picasa
