Our traditional (well, this is the third in four years) New Year’s Day social went off very nicely, thank you. We had RSVP’s from 40 or so adults with at least ten kids. Things that we kept the same: Cordon Rouge, gazpacho, lentil soup, and coffee cake. Innovation: hiring a real babysitter to hang out upstairs with the kids. Emma was great but went home looking frazzled; there are still a few nerf darts on the ceiling.
Here’s a shot of part of our front hall once things were well under way.
Thanks everyone for coming, and if our invite went astray or you slipped our minds, sorry.
We’re thinking of maybe shifting it to the summer solstice when it’s not so dark and cold and awful and the kids can go out in the yard.
