December 31, 2013 {Tradition}

As has been the tradition over the past few years, I thought I’d document the day in time.  Also a big tradition around here, the BOY and I enjoying a quiet NYE night in with seafood and champagne (and Indiana basketball).

9:43PM-Let the (Wii) Games Begin

I actually beat the BOY in Mario Cart!


10:28PM-Turning on the TV and flipping through countdowns (because some of them were SO bad, we just couldn’t watch…Miley I might be talking about you!)




10:52PM-Cooper Gives Us the ‘Let’s Go to Bed Face’

11:38PM-Family Selfies are Taken!


11:57PM-The Champagne is Popped!

Yup…it’s those 2007 glasses again : )  8th year in a row!




At one point during dinner, the BOY and I went through and named all 8 of the NYE’s that we’ve spent together.  It really is a beautiful and fun tradition!





Happy Hump Day New Years!

  1. Happy New Year! Love the day, and love your tradition to recall the NYEs spent together!
    Scallops are hands down my favourite seafood. They look divine!
    I got let out of work early yesterday and took a three hour nap- oops!

  2. Happy New Year! Sounds like a great evening. You go girl (winning at Mario). I am so bad at those games! We have been using the Wii Fit a lot more lately.

  3. Happy New Year, Jen!! Your night in looks fabulous. NYE sneaks up on me and I usually scramble for last minute plans. It’d be a lot less stressful if I took your lead and enjoyed the night at home (including lobster and scallops :))
