52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 43


We decided to have a low key New Year's Eve this year,
with a cheap bottle of champagne to pop open
after we put the kiddos to bed.


Roger used his manly skills to build the perfect fire for us.
(Really he just shoved one of those starter logs in there and lit it up)
Everything seems so much more special in the flickering light of a fire.

I tossed together some brie
with maple syrup, toasted pecans
and a few sliced apples.

It was an ooey gooey treat.

We curled up on the couch together
and watch The Lord of the Rings.

When the clock struck midnight,
we wrapped ourselves up in snuggles and smooches.

I can't think of a better way to
ring in the new year.


Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness for a whole year?
Simply post a photo of something that
makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it.
Then, steal my button and include it in your post.
Don't forget to link up to Mr. Linky.

We had a very similar night...but the boys also played Lego Lord of the Rings on the Wii. :)

Happy New Year, Leigh!

We had some friends over and played Quelf till nearly 1 am. For us it was perfect. Although I think I could have handled alone time with hubby as well.

We rang in the new year with Barbeque while the fireworks went off for hours. Happy New Years!

Sounds great!!

This sounds great. Our New Year's celebration consisted of Mario Cart on the Wii, a little karoke with the kids, and cheap champagne.

Fantastic celebration. Happy New Year! BTW, as always those pix are so dreamy!

Sue said...

We did exactly the same thing.

Can't be beat, can it?
