On the eve

I think we're on our way to having more established New Years' traditions than Christmas traditions! :) I've decided that it's just okay.

Here's a cute picture of Kenna talking/laughing to Marc...I love how big her smiles are now! Marc said he's going to start calling her "Patches" since her baby hair is falling out in chunks. She sure looks funny & probably will until the new blond hair grows in!

Baby feet. They're just too cute!

On New Year's Eve, we always have appetizers for dinner and chocolate fondue. Yummy! This year, we added a new tradition that I saw on Life as Mom: A cake to celebrate the birth-day of the New Year. FishMama also has lots of great ideas on this post to help us celebrate New Year's with kids. I can't wait to try the Garlic-Brie Bread next year...
Zachary was SUPER excited to make this cake, even more excited about the numbers on it, and unbelievably more excited about blowing out the candles all by himself. I think we may have some trouble when Kenna is able to understand...hopefully he'll be better at sharing then!

Sounds like a fun night. Glad the cake -- and candles -- were a hit!
