Last night we headed over to my parents’ house for a family game night. It was nice to have a quiet evening together after all the mayhem of the holidays.
We fired up the old fashioned popcorn machine that was this years’ family gift. I love the retro movie theatre look and it makes some pretty great popcorn too.
My mom made a lovely New Years dinner, which was the perfect way to kick off 2012.
On the menu was spiral cut ham, scalloped potatoes, brussel sprouts, peas and homemade biscuits. Dessert was her delicious gingerbread cake with whipped cream on top. It was delish!
I was really glad that I stayed over for the night instead of driving back over here today, especially when I looked out this morning and saw white out conditions. You can barely see across the river, let alone down the street.
Today’s the last day of the Christmas holiday and on the agenda is yoga, watching hockey and putting away Christmas decorations, which I would be lying if I didn’t say I was a little bummed about. Its always sad to see the glitz and lights put away for another year.
I do have to say that I’m ready to get back to regular blogging this week – more recipes, crafts and some fun changes to the new apartment. Stay tuned!
