i am so excited to start 2014. 2013 was a really tough year for us and i am ready to start a new one. we had a mini party with christina, jen, ray and all their kids. our usual crowd. they all came over around six and we served cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. the kids were so excited to see their cousins and dress up with silly hats.
for dinner we made chicken with a mustard tarragon sauce, autumn rice, green beans, and a salad with pecans, avacado, tomatoes, and gorgonzola. everything was delicious. christina brought a bunt cake for dessert. i even managed to stay up past midnight this year. yay.
today jen and i spent the whole morning doing a puzzle while christina took dahlia and zena to the american girl store. i made my traditional veggie chili with some black eyed peas thrown in for good luck. we watched tons of movies and lounged around. a very relaxing way to start the new year.
