A Fresh Start

Another year abruptly ends and another rolls in. The day started out as any other weekday, except that the kids were home from school. Tony went to work, I got up and got the house stuff going, kids got up, we all did our "thing", then we all met up at Ruby Tuesday's to eat lunch. Eating lunch out during the middle of the week isn't something we normally do, so it was nice. After lunch Tony took the kids to pick up stuff for dinner while I did some after Christmas/ New Year's sale shopping...

The dough recipe is one from my brother and it does not disappoint! One was 1/2 cheese 1/2 pepperoni, the other pepperoni and onions. Yum!

IMG_2467 Dessert was right after and we all enjoyed a chocolate fondue. We dipped pineapple chunks, strawberries, pound cake, banana slices and rice krispy treats. The kids loved it, and I think we will be doing this again real soon!

IMG_2479 After dessert we all came downstairs to play GH World Tour. We were on there a good 1 1/2 hours, and then I just couldn't sing another note! Everyone was looking tired, but we just had to wait till the ball dropped in Times Square before we could even think about going to bed! Tony and I opened a new bottle of wine only to find that it was the most disgusting we had ever tasted, but only after I got this photo! The kids and I toasted with Sparkling Grape juice and Tony toasted with a Sam Adams. A wonderful ending to a wonderful year. I have so much to be thankful for, and I am looking forward to all the possibilities in the new year.

Happy New Year to everyone, may it be big and bright and beautiful!
