And the party's over!
We've gone out and are home already, sitting around the woodstove drinking hot chocolate, watching TV and petting the cats.
We went out for dinner at our local Japanese restaurant, Mei Lin's House in Shippensburg. We have been doing this for many years with Chuck and Willa, our best friends. This year Brad and Kami and Chuck and Willa's son, daughter-in-law and their grandchild joined us.
We made reservations for the hibachi grill table for entertainment as well as food.

Preparing the meat and vegetable. During this time he does twirling of utensils, juggling eggs, and tossing bits of food for us to catch in our mouths.

The meal began with fried noodles, a salad and miso soup. Then we were given fried rice. By the time the meat and vegetables were served, I was pretty much at my limit. Leftovers are no problem! Not having to cook lunch tomorrow is OK with me.
That's about as exciting as our New Year's Eve gets! We are NOT Party People!
Sharing food, conversation and laughter with friends and family is good enough for me.
Hope your New Year's Eve is safe and enjoyable!
