We had quite a day today! We left home this morning about 11:00 am and returned home around 6:00 pm. It was a full day but, I’ll leave that for another post. Tonight I’m talking about the latter half of the day, tonight was a special night.
Our New Year’s Eve tradition started before we even had kids. It started as a junk food night just David and I on the couch eating junk food into the night and ringing in the New Year all sugared up. It has evolved a bit we’ve still kept the same concept. We do eat an actual supper now before the big splurge and the whole celebration takes place a little earlier in the night. The last few years our main attraction of the night has been fondue, as it was tonight. What could make you happier than ending a year with lots of things dipped in chocolate, well nothing, it’s simply the best way to end a year. And, that is what we did tonight, chicken fajitas first and then the big finale.
Strawberries, fresh pineapple, brownies, and marshmellows all dripping with chocolate.
Lots and lots of semi-sweet and milk chocolate with a bit of peanut butter. Yum!
Everyone enjoyed it. B4 even got a little taste of a marshmallow.
I’m pretty sure she enjoyed it more than her rice cereal. After the fondue a bit of sparkling apple cider for everyone to cheers with and about an hour of America’s Funniest Home Videos before shower time. All the B’s were in the bed by 9:45. Okay so it wasn’t 12:00, but it was quite a bit later than their normal bedtime at 8:00.
So what are your New Year’s Eve traditions?
