It's New Year's Eve.
I'm hitting the hard stuff...
I rarely drink soda...especially not caffeinated soda, so I really am livin' large tonight.
My husband just left for the party to sing in the New Year. Everyone is to bring a song that will represent their 2012. I told him to pick "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred. Instead, he chose "If I Were a Rich Man" from Fiddler on the Roof...but he changed the title to "When I AM a Rich Man" and rewrote the lyrics to reflect what he wants to have in his life. Clever man, he.
I do kind of wish I were going, but someone has to hold down the fort. So instead I'm sneakily sucking down Dr. Pepper in a dark corner in the kitchen while watching movies with my older three kids. We are having a slumber party in the family room...they are so excited.
I know they look glazed over...a screen'll do that to a body...
but they really are excited.
Before he left, my husband made stuffed mushrooms as his potluck contribution to the singing party...and he pulled out a Granny's Gadget for their preparation :) Unfortunately, I was not around for the initial usage, but Baby X and I staged a re-enactment for your viewing pleasure...my camera work is not as professional as my husband's...and it was very challenging to ad-lib the narrative and wield the camera and direct the action all at the same time :P
Nonetheless, I give you...
Forgot...it's been a long while so I'm cutting myself some slack...
Had to tack this on...my Granny's Gadgets video policy is
so no do-over to get the big thumbs up in there at the end.
I am giving this year...this two thousand eleven...this year of super cool happenings and then some...
two big thumbs up :)
Wishing each and every one of you all the wonderment and joy life has to offer in 2012.
