Happy 2009!

We are kicking off the new year quite happily at home! The kids have had so much fun making holiday memories this year.

We started with our dinner of clam chowder, green salad, sparkling cider and snack smorgasbord (artichoke hearts, fancy cheeses & summer sausage--a favorite from Joel's childhood)--I think we have begun a new tradition!

Then we enjoyed the new American Girl movie with extra buttery popcorn topped with Parmesan cheese. Mmmmmm. It's all about the food with me apparently!

Now our kids are showing off their mad dance skills while watching New Year's Rockin' Eve. Should I be worried that they are rocking out to the Pussycat Dolls? Perhaps.

I am working on my first knitting project tonight, a pink headband for N. I figure if the 10 year old girl in my knitting book can do it, so can I!

Okay, I guess Joel has had enough of New Year's Rockin' Eve, now we're watching Dog the Bounty Hunter. Yeah, we are such a classy family!

Anyway, I just wanted to share a little of our holiday cheer.

Hope you are having a fabulous evening!

This sounded like a fun way to kick off the new year. We had such a lame New Year's Eve. It was quite depressing, actually. I'm going to try harder next year. : )
