Happy New Year!

January 1st, 2011

Mr Chiots and I usually get together with friends for New Year’s Eve, and have a celebration full of fun food and games. Sadly, this year we had to work. We rang in the New Year with clients and all their guests.

We’ll pretend it’s tonight and toast again for our celebration. Here’s to a fantastic 2011.

Do you stay up and ring in the New Year?

    My New Year came while at home reflecting on the past year and anticipating what the new year will bring. The new year brings a fresh clean start.

    Happy New Year to you and all your blog friends.

    Normally we don’t celebrate the new year but this year some friends decided to come into town and we stayed up (although barely) for midnight. It was a nice time. Good dinner, good breakfast, and great conversation.

    Happy New Year to you and your family. I’m hard pressed to stay up pass 10pm but last night my husband and I made it to 10 minutes past midnight. We had a glass of bubbly and then into bed, tonight we will likely be in bed by nine making up for the sleep time we lost last night…
