New Year's Day

New Year's Day was full of family fun & a bit of stress, but the later sort of comes with the territory. Three little party animals who rang in the new year aren't always on their best behavior the next day. Eventually (after the bubbly was flowing again--lol), we settled back into our routine & enjoyed an easy going day watching football & hanging with family. Thank you to YiaYia, Bopi, Theo N & YiaYia Terry who graciously dined with us under less than ideal circumstances …. let's hope the whole year doesn't stay that way:)

Vasilopita is a sweet bread traditionally made for New Year's Day. You place a coin in the dough before baking & when cut, the person who's piece contains the coin is believed to have good luck for the year. Sweet lil Peanut won the first coin of the day.

We gathered in the dining room for a New Year's lunch & second cutting of a Vasilopita. YiaYia was the winner this round.

Our niece is a New Year's baby, so we spent a few hours celebrating her big 4th and then returned home to cheer on Hubby's alma mater in the Orange Bowl. Snuggling up with the fire blazing and Christmas lights twinkling was the perfect way to end the Holiday season. Happy New Year Everyone!
