Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my bloggy friends. I have been blogging for just over a year now and I am still amazed at this whole blog world. I have met some incredible and talented people, I have learned so much about myself and the world, and I have even been lucky enough to meet 2 blog friends in real life!! It has been a wonderful year and I want to thank all of you for welcoming me into this virtual world with open arms. There were many times this year when your kind and thoughtful words helped me through hard times, many times when you laughed with me and at me, many times when you rejoiced with me over triumphs, many times when you helped me through tribulations. Thank you, my friends. Yes, blog friends are real friends.

We spent a quite evening at home last night and had our own cocktail party.

Cassie and I created quite a spread of appetizers that we had for dinner and munched on through the night.
We played games, watched movies, and stayed warm with a cozy fire.

We toasted in the New Year with our "cocktails" and enjoyed each others' company. It was a wonderful party, lots of laughter, lots of fun. I hope your night was peaceful and fun, and safe.

What a great idea! It looks like it was a lot of fun! My son asked if next year (when he turns 10) he could stay up until midnight! I said, "of course!" Little did he know we would have let him stay up this year! We figured this will be opur last year of ringing in the new year alone for quite some time, so the kids all went to bed before midnight. I love your idea of appetizers for dinner and snacking. Looks like our Super Bowl Sunday spread!
