What would New Years Day be without the 1.2 mile sledding hill? I tell you what. It would be dull. I don’t know what the rest of the world does on New Years Day, but your welcome to come next year to our outing. Just make sure you bring your own Radio Flyer because we don’t share! This year there were two other groups who were sledding as well. They weren’t kids though. I’ve never seen grown men fly down a hill faster except on the luge at the Olympics. Luckily there weren’t any casualties. Next time though I think we’re going to wear our ski helmets. Safety you know!
This year we had my brother and his family, and even grandpa took a turn on a sled. The traditional New Years food was wonderful as well, and we all waddled back to our own homes when the day was over. Can I just tell you that I love the snacks. Katie made a great cheese ball, veggie tray and my mother’s chestnuts were delish!! For New Years Eve I even made my granny’s homemade Chicken Noodle Soup! What a way to start the year. It doesn’t get any better than this!
