Happy New Year!

We eschewed wild and crazy New Years parties for a family celebration at home.  

Okay, I lied.  We didn't get invited to any wild and crazy New Years parties.  Everyone we know was off skiing.

Gordy worked a half of a day, Henry hung out with friends and the girls and I puttered around the house.... until 5 o'clock, when we started our celebrations with some cocktails.

Gordy made Shirley Temples for the kids.

Shirley Temple Recipe:

Equal parts ginger ale and lemon-lime soda, a splash of Grenadine and a couple of maraschino cherries thrown in for good measure.

For the adults, I made Pear Prosecco cocktails.

Recipe:  equal parts Pear Nector and Cranberry juice, fill half-way up a glass and fill the rest of the way up with Prosecco.


Happy New Years!
