rockin’ new year

January 4, 2010

For New Year’s Eve we do something we call “Club Bratcher.” We dress up in our silliest outfit, eat some black-eyed peas, then blast some Black Eyed Peas and dance the night away. This year we even had a strobe light!
To help get our party started, I made a colorful garland to string above our dinner table…

True made a “Happy New Year” sign…

The girls got a New Year present, which was a new sketchbook for the new year…

Ben made Grilled Insalata Di Mare, which is seriously so yum that everyone must try it…

Of course, he also made black-eyed peas as it is tradition to have that before we dance…

After we all indulged in the yummy food, we got the party started and danced…
And danced…

Okay, actually Ben and I got out-danced by Brave and True as we were exhausted, but the strobe light was giving them some magical energy despite the late hour. Nevertheless, we all rocked the night away and rang in the New Year together.
we rock
We’ve got a feeling 2010 will bring lots of good things. It already started pretty great!!!
