New Year's Eve 2010

Ready for the New Year!
Nate enjoys a game of Piranha Panic with the kids.
Trey imitates Shrek with his green shirt and New Year's horns.
We enjoyed a fun family New Year's Eve at home this year.  Our fabulous neighbors joined us for playing games, creating new 2011 calendars, and celebratory fun at midnight (yes, we celebrated at 11:00 PM when the east coast hit midnight).

A new tradition we learned about this year comes from Spain.  It includes eating twelve grapes starting exactly at midnight and eating one grape for each stroke of twelve.  Um, in case you're wondering, that's easier said than done.  We were worried that somebody might choke on a grape, which we decided would not be a sign of good luck.  We did get the grapes consumed though, then enjoyed a toast and lots of noise-making to bring in the new year.

Poor Leo wasn't sure what to make of our odd behavior but happily joined in the noise-making with us by howling along with the party horns at midnight!
