Hello, Friends! Any fun celebrations for you tonight? It’s so cold here that we are delighted we get to stay in with our kids. The big kids are going to have a Lord of the Rings movie marathon from 6:00 to midnight. The smaller kids are going to watch movies on the laptop till they fall asleep. Baby June will be in bed around 6:30. : ) We’ll eat lots of junk food and bang pots and pans on the front porch when 2011 arrives.
Don’t laugh, but I let the kids pick out all those pre-made appetizers you find in the frozen aisle — mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, mini-corndogs, pizza bagels, mac & cheese wedges — for our feast tonight. Yikes! I think we might be sick tomorrow.
I’ll be back with my regular posting schedule on Monday. In the meantime, here are my Babble links to keep you company.
– Our favorite Winter Break tradition.
– I’m always tempted when I see these.
– This is how I store my Christmas ornaments.
– Hooray! Non-trampy Barbie clothes.
– Would owning these help me keep my New Year’s Resolutions?
Have a fantastic weekend. Yay for 2011! Happy New Year to you and yours!!
