We had a good New Year eve starting in the morning.
When we decided to go for a walk to Tournament House so we could see the KTLA5 news & weather crew, Mark Kriski, Jessica Holmes, Frank Buckley & Chris Schauble do their job.
Then after being all fan like we decided to cross the road to get my photo taken with Frank & Jessica.
We both had our cool person jackets on.
That was a great start to the day a 4.5 mile walk and meeting local celebrities.
It got to the evening and we were going to Essi & Mikko’s house for a small New Year’s eve party.
There was a grand total of 4 nationalities including British, Irish, German & Finnish.
We actually celebrated the new year at 9 pm due to children needing to go home for bed.
We carried on after they went we continued with many conversations & singing.
We were having that much fun we failed to take many photos.
The remaining people then all said happy new year at midnight. Needless to say we carried on drinking for a “wee” while longer. At home time we invited Andreas to our apartment as we had all finished our scotch & we still had Irish whiskey we could have one of all 3 of us. Our great conversation continued until 2:15, then we walked him to Colorado boulevard to call a taxi, we saw a lot of people camping for the Rose Parade. We parted ways & came home as I wanted to go to the parade for 9am.
I got up to go to the parade & left Christopher in bed. When I got up to Colorado blvd I was 3 steps from the parade route & had a good view.
When it started I was suddenly surrounded by people. Needless to say I was both ARRGGHHH & wow at the same time.
These pictures may not be in the right order but ENJOY!
I ended up just staying for 45 minutes as a kid being held kept hitting my head so I thought I should go home. When I got home I continued watching on tv.
Any way Happy New Year.
