Happy New Year

Here's wishing a wonderful 2009 to one and all.

Last night we had a fun-filled New Year's Eve at home. For dinner we used the fondue pot and got to cook our own dinners - chicken, hot dogs, broccoli, carrots and cheese, dipped in a tempura batter and deep-fried.

Then we had a rousing game of Apples to Apples (best family game ever).

Followed by watching Heidi on DVD.

The movie wasn't quite over yet at midnight, so we switched to regular TV for a couple of minutes to watch the ball drop in Times Square, wished each other a happy new year, watched the rest of the movie and off to bed.

Today we're off to our traditional New Year's Gathering with family and friends.

More about that later (and if you're good I'll explain the odd tradition we have involving radishes, bananas, hot peppers and salt - I know you're dying to know)

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year to you too!

Ours was at home with a carry-out Chinese buffet and games (Sequence, Partini and an old once every couple year favorite -- Atmostfear which is crazy with six adults playing)
