Happy New Year!

Earlier today my brother was demanding that I update my blog, so here you are 🙂 I hope everyone had a fantastic New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Ours were both quiet, but quite nice. On New Year’s Eve I broke out the crème brûlée set Drew gave me for Christmas and we enjoyed that with a bottle of Korbel Natural. Not the greatest sparkling I ever had, but it was OK. For the price I’d rather buy a Prosecco or Cava, I think, but I still enjoyed the Korbel. We watched “Knocked Up” which we both found very funny. I think it’s probably funnier if you have children because you can relate to some of the circumstances better. I love Seth Rogan’s films because there is always great character development and growth. I expect his movies to just be dumb comedies and there’s a lot more to them than that.

Yesterday we got some more snow dumped on us. Snow is much more enjoyable when you don’t have to do all the shoveling yourself! Drew and I did the driveway pretty quickly. The boys and I built a snowman and then we all went sledding (there are benefits to living on a hill!):

After we came inside, Drew and I popped open a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte champagne, which was incredibly delicious (notes on both the Korbel and the Nicolas Feuillatte are here). We picked at shrimp and cheeses and peppered salami and then I set up a “make your own sundae” bar. The boys has so much fun piling the toppings onto their scoops of Bunny Tracks ice cream! In the evening the kids played while I tried to get back into the swing of things, making Jake’s lunch and snack for school today. Last night Drew and I ate more crème brûlée and watched some more of the first season of Veronica Mars (God, that show is so good! How did I overlook it when it was originally on?).

Not a bad way to ring in the new year. May 2008 be a happy and a healthy one!

    Funny. I haven’t seen Knocked Up, but we watched Superbad while visiting the family. At the beginning, although I laughed my head off I was kinda thinking “this is a little misogynistic,” but by the end the characters (and the story) had totally redeemed themselves. Glad you had a nice (and food-filled) New Year’s eve. I somehow missed out on Champagne. We have a bottle of Friexenet (or however you spell it) in the fridge that we never got to.
