New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is always a surprise for us. We never really make plans, so we often sit at home watching football. Now and then we get invited to a party, so we celebrate there. A few times the girls have had friends over. And 2010 Corinne and I were in LA because the Walton band marched in the Rose Parade. This year is another surprise: friends from California and Pennsylvania are here for the Passion 2013 conference, so we have five extra people. Caty and Corinne each have a friend over, and Carrie and Mike are here.  So, Brian whipped up a mashed potato bar and veggies and his famous cheese puff for snacking, and then built a fire for making s'mores. Good times.....and a pleasant way to bid farewell to 2012.

This song from Holiday Inn has been running through my head all day, so here are the lyrics with a wish and a prayer for a blessed 2013.

One minute to midnight
One minute to go
One minute to say good-bye
Before we say hello

Let's start the new year right
Twelve o'clock tonight
When they dim the light
Let's begin

Kissing the old year out
Kissing the new year in

Let's watch the old year die
With a fond good-bye
And our hopes as high
As a kite

How can our love go wrong if
We start the new year right?
