B and I hosted our first gathering at our home this week! We decided to have some friends over for a low-key New Year’s Eve – complete with food, some drinks, and a few babies/toddlers.
The day started with some COLD outside play for FW. Confession – I didn’t leave my house at all that day because it was so cold, so while B and FW were outside (FW was outside for all of 5 minutes or so) to shovel, play, etc. I was inside helping to prep everything.
We did some decorating had tons of food! We finally got to use our dining room, too, which was great – it’s a room that we’ve done a good amount of work to since moving in (painting, putting in a new ceiling, taking out the fan, getting a new light fixture, plus a rug and furniture) so it was so much fun to share it!
We had a ton of food to share – most of it isn’t even pictured! But B and I made pepperoni bread, pizza, baked ziti, eggplant parmesan and Lidia’s Brussels sprouts. We had friends bring over some delicious dips and charcuterie.
Oh, and of course I made some desserts. In addition to the graham cracker toffee that I’ve now made 3 times this holiday season, I also made some peanut butter cup cupcakes and mocha cupcakes.
FW had fun hanging out with all our friends.
Especially his friend Celia 🙂
FW didn’t stay up until midnight (we put him to bed late though – probably around 9:30?), but I made it until 1:30! Which is a big deal fro me 🙂
Happy 2018! Hope yours is off to a fabulous start.
See more fun with the Lou Lou girls linkup.
