Ring in the New

We started off our New Year's Eve celebration by taking the boys sledding. It only took a few runs before the boys were too tired to walk back up the hill and Mom and Dad were waaayy too tired to pull them back up the hill. It was a good sledding day because it was warm and sunny and you weren't freezing.

After sledding we had a late lunch at Costa Vida and let the kids play in the small playground area. Then back home so that Sawyer (and Dad) could have a nap. Later that evening we took the boys to Mimi's and let them choose any dessert they wanted from the dessert tray. The desserts are $5 and they are huge! The kids were in heaven. Will chose the double chocolate brownie and Sawyer chose the apple crisp. Amazingly, they both ate almost their whole plate. So much for me wanting to share with Will! I had 2 bites of his brownie...and then he finished my hot chocolate too.

After dessert we drove down to the mall to watch the 9 p.m. fireworks. We found a place to park and watched the short and sweet fireworks show.

Then back home for a sparkling cider toast before bed. The boys celebrated East Coast New Year's and went to bed at 10 p.m. I stayed up finishing the last 2 months' worth of blog updates. At midnight I watched the time delayed ball drop in Times Square and then went to bed. Pretty exciting.

Happy New Year!
