Happy New Year 2012!!

In addition to keeping up with this blog I'm also going to try my hand at the picture a day again.
We started 2012 by ringing in the new year with my parents and the boys.  Poor little Bennett was such a good sport, he hung in there until 10:40 and then he just couldn't fight it any longer and the poor baby went to bed.  Carson was so cute by counting down and clanging our champagne glasses and saying "CHEERS" over and over again.  He loved that part.

Mom and I, as usual, prepared too much food for the evening.  We always make enough food to feed a small army and this year was no exception.  The best part of the food was how much Carson was willing to try.  He tried the bacon wrapped pretzels, the chocolate covered bacon and the shrimp cocktail.  I was so impressed.  He even seemed to enjoy the shrimp.  And unlike most typical five-year-olds his favorite nosh seemed to be the medium boneless buffalo wings from B-dubs.  That's our boy liking the spicy stuff.  I just hope Bennett like spicy food as much as the rest of us.

Mom and I couldn't help ourselves and had to have some sushi.  We bought some sushi and made up our own platter.  We wish we could have had it from Tegry Bistro but this platter sufficed.  So my picture for January 1st, 2012 is said platter.  Yummy!!

(1/366, it's a Leap year, ya know)
Before my mom and dad headed back home they watched the boys for us and we ventured out to see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  Excellent movie.  A little difficult to watch at times, violence, but all-in-all a GREAT movie.  Not to mention I love the Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross & Karen O version of Immigrant Song.  A good soundtrack can always make a movie better.

So today, Monday, I've spent the day doing laundry, reading a good book (more on that later) and just enjoying my day off.  In addition to those things and with it being a new year and all I decided that I should put my new Kinect Zumba game to good use.  Man am I outta shape!!!  It was so fun though.  So if you that I was going to post a picture of me Zumba-ing you are CRAZY.  So my picture for today is the game itself.  I'm still laughing a little that you think I would post such an embarrassing picture.

Happy 2012 Everyone.  Here's to a GREAT year!
