In this family, we like to do things in style. So naturally, we ring in the new year sipping sparkling cider out of any container available. This year featured the standard vases, a fish bowl, a creme brulee dish, a salt shaker, a measuring cup, and a ladel.
We followed our many cheers and kisses with a fireworks show where we almost lost our legs when a new roman candle user dropped his hand and directed his candle at the crowd before they were done firing out.
We also enjoyed: a cheese ball the size of Texas, buffalo chips, the most time consuming dinner ever made, a sing-a-long, and Apples to Apples.
A good time was had by all. Except for Dave, who went to sleep on the couch nice and early since he has a paper route he has to be up early for. What a trooper.
Happy New Year! 2013 is going to be great!
