What's Up!

Hello friends~ I've been missing for awhile here in blog land.  It's been quiet and relaxing on the home front.
Just enjoying the calm after the Christmas hub bub.  This year I just was not in the spirit.  I hardly baked, I didn't want all the festivities, I didn't want all the work!  I was pretty shut down.  It's behind us now and looking forward to moving on!

New Years Eve will be spent in the quietness and charm of home.  It has become a tradition.  The hubby meets his brothers in the afternoon at STAN'S for a toast (or two) to the new year.  He is home early.  We celebrate with a candlelight dinner.

Nice steak on the grill, crab legs, salad, and baked potatoe
my new favorite
Barefoot Bubbly
We talk about the year that has passed, the new year  looking forward and then it's to bed fairly early.  Can't remember the last time we saw the ball drop at midnight!

For us, it's the perfect way to end the new year and begin anew!

New Years Day, if the weather is clear, we will head down to Portage to see our little bundle of happiness.
She will be down there celebrating Christmas and New Years with the Grandparents!

Wishing all of you, my faithful followers, love, peace, good health and happiness in 2012.  Be safe on New Years!  What are your plans for celebrating the new year?
Love - Babs~

  1. HI Barb, You've got the right idea...a cozy at home New Years Eve. We aren't quite as fancy as yours, just a few snacks and a toast of sparking grape juice at midnight. Seeing your little one will also be a great start to the year year. Wishing you a healthy, happy new year... With Love, Penny
