New Year's Eve

Our New Year's Eve celebrations have become stay-at-home occasions over the last few years.

But we always celebrate!

This year we had a friend from church over to spend the evening...and we had a delicious meal of appetizers (LOTS of cheese) and fondue for dessert. My friend Missy made an amazing artisan bread bowl (full of spinach dip, of course) and as soon as I get the recipe and try it out, I'll share it here. It was so very yummy.

This year was the first year the kiddos had sparkling grape juice.
They loved every single drop.
I think they felt extra special since they got to use our small wine glasses.

It's the little things, you know.

Madeleine downed her glass so fast, I was sure she would feel sick afterwards. (I used to always get a stomachache if I drank too much sparkling grape juice growing up. Still do. But mmm...that is yummy stuff.) But she was fine. And full of sugary energy just before bedtime. :)

As for the adults, as the midnight hour drew near, we toasted in the New Year with Mango Bellinis...
Hope you had a happy evening too!

P.S. One of my very dearest friends gets to celebrate her birthday on this special day! Happy Happy Happy Birthday Shawna! Love you!

Mango Bellinis? Yum! I was too tired to even have any of the champagne that night but made up for it the next day with mimosas!
