New Year in the Azores

We rang in the New Year last night in the Azores... kind of. It so happens that 12:00 midnight in the Azores (and in Praia, Cape Verde) corresponds approximately to bedtime in Oklahoma City. So - as the Azoreans were wishing each other "Feliz Ano Novo", we broke out the "confetti" and engaged in what has become a Rubesh family tradition - making a huge mess!

As you can see in the video, Kyler's not quite sure what's going on, and doesn't seem to like the taste of our Dollar Store confetti that much! A couple minutes of Azorean celebration was followed by an hour of cleanup... but at least we kept things indoors and didn't alarm the neighbors this year!
