Ahhhhh good friends, delicious pork cassoulet, decadent cookies, hot melty cheese goodness, sparkling wine, and 2 of 3 children well-behaved. What better way to end a year and begin anew? Many thanks to Mr. & Mrs. B for ever gracious hospitality. Of course celebraing NYE with three children whose collective ages sum to less than 5 years, midnight was observed East-Coast time, thus ensuring an appropriate bedtime for everyone involved.
Some highlights from the evening:
- Miss L and handsome young Master A fawned over Lil' E, carefully inspecting her toys, helpfully handing them one by one to her, and never became concerned at her eventual fatigue-induced wails.
- Miss L enjoyed a chocolate chocolate chip cookie so much she attempted to feed it to the on-screen Linus on the video of "A Charlie Brown Christmas."
- Mrs. B enjoyed libations, as she is free from obligation to provide nutrition for a small person.
- The Misters B made some darned good libations.
