This isn't going to be one of those out with the old, in with the new posts. It's not even a post about my New Year's Resolutions because the fact is, aside from figuring out Twitter, I don't really have any.
I have decided to enjoy my life. I've decided to have more FUN and to spend more time with my kids. They're virtually grown up. I'm lucky that the girl's boyfriend lives too far away for her to want to spend New Year's Eve with and the boy's girlfriend was working. Mr. Polka Dot was home, too, so we had our own little party with the kids and my mom.
I cooked a lot of snacks. We had meatballs, wings, mozzarella sticks, pepperoni rolls, mac&cheese bites and these lovely cheeseburger cupcakes. The filling is really a cheeseburger and the bun on top is like bread. You top them with a special sauce and the toppings you like. This was was the boy's. He loves bacon!
We watched Anderson & Kathy on CNN because it's just not Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve without Dick(and because I'd rather have my eyeballs poked with forks than watch that much of Ryan Seacrist.)
Then we rang in the New Year! My kids adore their grandma! I'm so lucky that they like to spend time with their family. I know someday that's going to change and I've been lucky to have them for this long.
