We've been seeing in the New Year with Bob's brother and SIL, Tom and Bonnie, for quite a few years now. We used to have our kids , theirs and a few cousins too, but the kids are grown up and now it's just us 4. We usually go out for supper, then go to one of our homes and spend time together till the ball drops.
This year we did something a little different. Tom had this idea that since we had the whole evening we should go to a few different places to eat. So - we went to Applebees for appetizers, a local Italian place for pizza, and then to a restaurant in our town for dessert. We took our time at each place, so we didn't get too full or feel rushed.
By the time we finished here and came to our house, it was 10:00. We chatted and then had a midnight toast of sparkling juice to bring in the new year. Then it was off to bed since I had to work in the morning.
What a fun night!
