Happy New Year!

Having New Years at the first of the week really threw us off. I had to work on the 31st and did not get home until about five thirty. Jami’s mom has started a tradition where every other year we go out to dinner on New Year’s eve. This year the plan was to go to Rodizio Grill at Trolly Square. While I am usually a huge fan of Rodizio, and consider myself a champion eater, the reservation was not until 8:30 pm and after having worked all day I was starving! We stopped by my parent’s to drop off the kids. Ben and Jenny were having some friends over and had graciously invited out kids to crash their party. We arrived at about seven and they had a nice spread of finger foods laid out. I couldn’t help myself. I snacked a bit more than I should have and by the time we hit Rodizio I was pretty full. I did my best to get our money’s worth out of the experience but really wanted to eat more I just couldn’t do it. Luckily Jami’s brothers can really pack it down so I think as a family we definately got our money’s worth. At one point one of the waiters stopped and told Matthew and Andrew that they had eaten more than anyone else – by far! What an honor.

We got back to Ben and Jenny’s party about ten o’clock. Our kids had put themselves to bed so we hung around and played Guitar Hero and Sing Star until about ten to midnight when we turned on poor old dick clark and watched him count down the new year. You have to hand it to Dick Clark. At one point we were all convinced he was nothing more than a hologram or some sort of robot created by the Disney Imagineers, but it is obvious now that Dick is the real deal and unfortunately on his last years.

We brought in the New Year with noisemakers and sparklers in the front yard. In past years Ben and I have really got each other going just doing crazy stuff with the noisemakers. This year we weren’t quite as funny but I will never forget Ben running up and down the street with two fist-fulls of sparklers or how freaked out we got when Adam Spencer threw one of the sparklers up into the tree and we thought the tree was going to catch on fire.

Happy New Year Everyone!
