NYE Party Remix

For practically our whole marriage, John and I have thrown a huge annual New Years Eve party. In fact, one of our favorite things about choosing this house was the ability to entertain.

This year, when we sent out our invitation we found that many of our friends weren't able to come. Rhonda and Troy are on a mission trip. Robin-the-Artist and Floyd-the-Sidekick have a new baby that they don't want to take out. Peter and Nancy-the-Insightful are doing something with wine friends. And after a week of negative responses or no response, we decided to scrap our usual and recraft something specifically designed for the couples who said "yes."

And so, tonight we've made plans for a fabulous fajita dinner (complete with sangria, limes for the Mexican beer and sopapillas for dessert) and have designed our own home version of "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader" starring John Hutchworthy as the host.

I have to say I love this stuff! And given that I've left all to today to prepare, I'd better get started!
