Well...well...well, we've made it!!!
Thought to share some pictures before turning in. We've been to a couple of friends this afternoon and was been cozy we came home later than we had expected. Feeling very tired now as it was late last night too, i think around 4AM when we went to bed, as we had unexpected friend who stopped by at 1:30am just after we came in as we spent about 45minutes watching for the fireworks here in the neighbourhood and hubby and the kids has some too.

This is my first time to join in while hubby and Chris there 2nd time and Grace, her 3rd time! I did noticed there were not so many participants compared to last year though lots and lots of spectators around. Preparations before joining in to the group for going into the water went well but waiting for the GO signal to go wasn't fun as we aren't wearing our slipper's, the sand was very very cold. When we finally run to the water side my aim is to go fast and dip in and run back out of the water. Water was really cold and thought i can't move my body anymore but i did manage to get out and the feeling wasn't terrible as i had expected. It wasn't so cold anymore except my feet and fingers so i took the time to dress. I am glad one of my SIL was there to help Chris as i am not that quick with my fingers at that moment.
Here's a picture of my sister-in-law with Chris, hubby and SIL's hubby. Before leaving the house hubby called them if one of them will come to the beach to help out as the one i had expected to come and help us went to another beach to help her daughter for the dive. Yes, there were 3 different places or beaches that this so called "Nieuwjaar's Duik"is being held. My SIL said, i am totally CARZY to go along with the rest of my family to go for the dive...oh well, hubby's proud i did! And sure i am too!! So glad as you can see on the pictures the weather's clear, bright and sunny and no wind. The temperature is around 3 degrees, while the sea water temperature is around 6 degrees.
I hope everyone is enjoying a great start to 2010!
