New Year's Day

Well, today we continued our family tradition. We had fondue on New Year's Day! A couple nights ago we were having dinner at some friends from school and mentioned the whole fondue thing, we thought it sounded like a good idea, so we made plans and had that today. The Lawrence family is another family of seven with kids ranging from kindergarten to 10th grade. Betsy and I, and Joe (school administrator) and his wife went to their place for the day. Got there at about 12:15 and left at about 10:15. We had a wonderful assortment of foods for the fondue. Of course we had the standard fare of hotdogs and bread, but we also did broccoli and califlower, and the best addition by far was little baby potatoes (cooked ahead of time).

In the chocolate we had just fruits, of course being in a tropical place we had fresh pineapple instead of canned. We also had bananas, oranges, and apples. Oh, and we had pretzels that could be dipped into either one.

All in all it was much fun with food and lots of games! (Boggle, Zigity, Nerts, Uno Attack, Speed, and Bang!)

Love you all, hope your New Year's Day is equally fun!
