Happy New Year! Why is it that time just continues to go faster every year? I did take some time to celebrate and bring in the new year. But staying up till midnight is just way past my bedtime! I guess I can make the sacrifice once a year.
We spent the evening at my in-laws with family. That’s my kind of night out! The kids were a hoot. They think New Years is the best because they get to eat all sorts of food, drink special sodas and sparkling cider.
About an hour before midnight all the cousins concocted a plan to ring in the New Year by sledding down Grandma’s massive sledding hill right at midnight.
The temperature was down in the single digits, so they bundled up, grabbed head lamps and sleds and headed up the hill.
The plan was 3 minutes before midnight, Grandma would blow an air horn with three quick blasts. That would be their signal to get ready. Then right at midnight she would blow it again with one long blast!
All the adults stayed in the house, where it was toasty warm. Grandma headed out to the deck at the exact times and blasted the horn.
At midnight you could hear the hoots and hollers and then see all the head lamps bounce the way down the hill.
They came back in red faced and exhilarated. They thought they had accomplished the greatest feat ever…and they had! How many people can ring in the New Year by sledding right at midnight?
We quickly piled into the car and headed home. New Year’s morning started out slow and lazy.
The kids and Rod slept in super late. I welcomed in the New Year by making these oatmeal banana muffins. It was a perfect start to a new year!
