It's New Year's Eve. My kids are disappointed they won't be spending their New Year's Eve with their friends at the beach, like usual. We're staying home----the mountain roads are impassable (at least for me).
Instead, we will enjoy a little party of sorts by ourselves. Our agenda? The Simpson's Movie, homemade ice cream Sundaes, board games, knitting, bundled up star gazing, and my favorite childhood tradition: a midnight barefoot run to the end of my Mom's driveway and back in the snow (she has a long driveway, too). Why? Because it's there (isn't that the case with children?)! And then some warming up toasty toes by the big fireplace... I like quiet New Years. I always have.
Here's to your own New Year's traditions and festivities!
