I love New Years! I don't like to typical get all dressed up and go out and watch a stupid ball drop kind of New Years. What I love is the feeling of a fresh start. My favorite way to spend the evening is at home, watching movies in my jammies. On New Years day, I love laying around and just doing whatever I feel like. This year I had a craving for comfort food. I made this bread. I tasted much better that it looked. I made home made chicken noodle soup and home made granola. Yum! On New Years day we all stayed in our pajamas. I was cooking and baking most of the day. It was cold outside. Perfect weather to make soup and bread. I was was explaining to my daughters what makes people celebrate the comming of a new year. It was New Years eve and we were going to our neighbors for a little celebration. I told her that every year people all over the world celebrate the comming of the new year. In my ramblings I absentmindedly mentioned that it will never be 2007 again. Big mistake!. She instantly burst into tears. "Never again mamma! Why not! I love 2007. It was a good year! I don't care about 2008 yet" It took about ten minutes to get her to chill out. What a sentimental girl we have. It's no suprise to me. Both of her parents would have done the same thing when they were six. We ended up telling her that we can have a "Happy old year " party instead. We can celebrate what a great year we just had. She started talking about all the great things we did in 2007. Now that I think about it think she is on to something. We really did have a wonderful year and we have a lot to be thankful for. Before looking foreword I think I will spend some time this week looking back on some of our best 2007 moments (stay tuned). Then, onto plans, goals and New Years resolutions.
