Bringing in the New Year

For the last several years, we've celebrating New Year's Eve with the Hermacinski family. This year, we were able to keep up our tradition, with a little tweaking (as Jay had to work in the afternoon/evening). So, we made it a New Year's Eve lunch celebration.

Cara and I ready to party!

We ate a special New Year's Eve lunch, followed by a couple of games.

The kids posed on the couch before a round of charades begins.

After the games, the kids made New Year's Eve toasts.

The adults partook in the sparkling grape juice toasts too!

Finally, the kids were able to count down to the New Year (at about 2 p.m.). Six times (so each child could go individually) we'd count down to the new year followed by balloons tossed over our upstairs' rail.
The other kids stood ready to catch all the falling balloons. They had a blast! Thanks Hermacinskis for a wonderful celebration and afternoon.

New Year's Eve night my parents offered to watch the kids. We were fortunate to have (free) babysitters, but no plans. So, we had a casual dinner at a Thai Restaurant followed by a decadent chocolate dessert at Plums.

Happy New Year!!!!
