We say goodbye to 2013, which holds so many fond memories, and look with anticipation toward a great year to come. We celebrated with poppers, a fondue dinner, some bunny chasing in the backyard (Tibbles got loose again) and our traditional Just Dance party.
The kids set up a fort and slept in the family room.
Lorelei and I did the midnight countdown (Eastern time zone). Mr. G was out.
And New Year's morning, we had donuts on a string.
It's our family's very own New Year's Day tradition, based on a quote I spotted scrolling across the TV screen ticker one NYE long ago:
IN THE YEAR (FILL-IN-THE-BLANK), LET THIS BE OUR GOAL:
TO FOCUS ON THE DONUT, INSTEAD OF ON THE HOLE.
Hence, donuts on a string!
It's a hoot.
Here's to all things new, 2014!
