In late December we had no plans for New Year's Eve and thought about how we'd like to celebrate it. With grandchildren! So we solicited the two local children who were in town and had five little people join our celebration. Cheese fondue was the hands-on favorite for dinner. We played a modified charades (act out an animal or activity for everyone to guess), musical chairs, and had a treasure hunt for the "goodie" bags. We had early fireworks for the go-to-bed younger children and then watched Christmas Story with Brendan. We rang in the new year with sparkling cider watching the ball drop in Times Square.
Oh yes, and we also had two birthdays to celebrate. Happy birthday, little snow bunnies!
