Our New Year's Eve tradition starts with everyone picking their top two favorite foods. We bring the coffee table into the sunporch and sit on cushions for dinner. This year Ben chose rolls and chicken, Max chose fruit kabobs and jello, Maura chose brocolli cheddar soup and black olives. I made an artichoke for myself and Charlie ate some of everything. We also had pink lemonade.
After dinner we bring the mattresses into the living room for a movie and slumber party.
After dinner we skyped with MaeMae and Uncle James to toast in the New Year (at 10pm). Maura had already put herself to sleep.
