We have a wonderful New Years tradition of making pizza with my cousin.
As you can see, we don't mess around. Boiling vats of pizza.
Maybe we mess around a little. Toasting the new year. Playing video games. We stayed for a completely indecent 9 hours (SHAME on us! Seriously!). What great hosts our cousins are!
So great, in fact, that when it was discovered at 10:15 pm that Bella's blankie must have been left at their house, I just couldn't quite bring myself to call them. (However a pick up was quickly arranged this morning.)
To celebrate blankie's return, we took him out to a fancy New Year's brunch. We had a Groupon for Kozlak's Royal Oaks that was about to expire and decided to risk taking our kids with us. We needn't have worried, they have quite an appetite for breakfast food and were very entertained by all the 'bars'--omelette bar, pickle bar (actually the bloody mary bar), sundae bar. The band even played them Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Bella shyly requested it). It was a very nice way to kick off a new year. I forgot my camera so didn't get any pictures, which was not a nice way to kick off a new year.
The new year always motivates me to make resolutions. I looked back at last year's list, and was totally shocked to realize I actually did most of those things. Wow! I have made a new list for 2011, here's to hoping that list goes as well! I'd love to hear any of your resolutions!
