Happy Pots and Pans Day!

Actually that was yesterday . . . or maybe New Years Eve would more appropriately be "Pots and Pans Day." At least that is how Goldie referred to it when she couldn't remember the name of the holiday. "What is the next holiday after . . . Pots and Pans Day?" she'd asked Abe, and he ran to tell me because he thought "Pots and Pans Day" was so great. I think it is great too because that is what it always has been for me (and continues to be for my kids). You stay up late and ring in the new year by going outside, banging pots and pans, and yelling, "Happy New Year!" Anyway, I hope all of you had a wonderful Pots and Pans Day and more importantly a wonderful blessing filled time between this and the next Pots and Pans Day!

You and I .... we are cut from the same cloth....

Now as I typed that I was singing a little song that we sang in choir back at OHS and those were the words so please, even though you probably don't know the tune, try to sing them as you read them and you will know that I am so happy that we are not the only ones that bang the pots or come up with funny names for days in which we bang pots. That is a good name.

Sharkie and I were the only ones left awake at midnight and he wanted so bad to bang a pot so he did, with me in the basement while I worked on a Sudoku puzzle.

Happy New Year!

yeah when I grew up that is what we did but I don't do it with my kids. We played the ladybug game and went to bed at 830

New year's magically came at 8:37 this year. Oh the yawning was out of control and then the kids, well they were starting to fall asleep.

We blew party blowers and ate junk. Earlier we did the whole drop as many mint Mentos into a 2 liter bottle of diet Coke as you can before it starts spraying everywhere. My kids thought that was better than fireworks.

Yah, we are pretty wimpy too. Here is the lucky thing . . . my kids are under the impression that the shouting of happy new year and banging of pots and pans is just part of the evening's celebrations. Hehe. They have, as of yet, know idea it is supposed to accompany the dinging of midnight.

I will be adding the mentos trick to our evening for sure though!

All I can think of is the time when our pots and pans time was interrupted by my brother, rudely and embarrassingly, making out in the front of my house with his yuck girl friend. Maybe that didn't really happen on pots and pans day, but that's what came to mind.
