HELLO 2009!

How did you ring in the New Year?

Each year we eat dinner early. Maybe watch some movies or play board games. Then as it gets close to around 10:30 we start putting out some snacks. In the past they have been very fattening snacks. This year, I tried to be good. First snack out was a fruit platter. There was sliced pineapples, mangos, strawberries and grapes and of course chocolate for dipping in. Then I made some potato skins with sour cream topping of course. Ha, okay, so it wasn't all non fattening, but it was good. Then we catch some of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin Eve. I grew up watching that waiting for the New Year to get rung in. I was so sad the year that he had his stroke. New Year's wasn't the same without him. It is good to see that he is doing well and it is nice to see his face each New Year's Eve. We ring in the new Year Eastern time and then stay awake another hour for New Year's our time....which is central time.....and then it's bed time.
Pin It Now!
