We've settled into a lovely tradition for New Year's Eve: we do Chinese food for dinner with a little sparkling apple juice, a few small decorations and some poppers. It is exactly what I can handle at this time of the holiday season, and, per my plan, it is perfect as the kids get older and want to head off to the multi-stake dance for the night. We still get to celebrate together, they rowdy ones all leave, and I go to sleep by 10:30.
We also do a short list of favorites, looking back, and resolutions, looking forward.
I hope your celebrations were exactly what you hoped. Best wishes for 2014!
