I must admit that I really don't like New Year's Eve. I'm not sure why but something about it always depresses me. I'd rather go to bed at 10:00 and get up and enjoy the Rose Parade and our traditional breakfast instead of hanging out until after midnight.
But tonight Stan will get home from work about 11:45, so the boys and I are going to wait up for him with some Sparkling Cider and some snacks so who knows, it may be fun.
In the meantime I am getting ready for tomorrow morning, which is always fun for us. I am smoking two and a half pounds of salmon so we can have bagels with cream cheese and salmon for breakfast, along with some Gorilla Bread I will be baking. As an extra treat we'll enjoy our friend Kristeen's hot chocolate with it.
We usually eat in the living room as we watch the Rose Parade. My husband Stan is from San Luis Obispo where Cal Poly is (his grandfather used to teach there) and they always have a float in the parade. So we enjoy our breakfast and watch for the float and pick our favorites.
I suspect that this year we'll also be keeping an eye on the marching bands since Kevin marched in several parades this year. I know they won't be as good as his band .....
Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! Here's hoping that all your dreams continue to come true for you in 2010!
