Happy New Year

Day one of 2009 proved to be quite peaceful on 2nd Ave. We lounged around, took naps, and relaxed most of the day. Annika and I did venture out to the store, but soon found that the warehouse stores are closed on January 1st - who knew??

I was in bed well before midnight on new year's eve; Annika's early wake up time doesn't exactly encourage me to stay up late! We had a bottle of champagne in the 'fridge that was still unopened when I woke up on the 1st. So, I started a new tradition for myself. Instead of popping a cork at midnight to ring in the new year, I'll save the bubbily for the next day and will start the new year off with a mimosa. A bit fancy. A bit refreshing. A bit fun. Perfect!

Happy 2009 one and all!!

Love the mimosa tradition! Sounds good to me... I am not much for staying up late anyways!

Happy New Year to all the Olsons! And Annika looked great as a stack of burgers with Snoopy on top!

Yum, yes, Fred and I have a version we call "whoopers"--champagne with cranberry juice. It's great for breakfast!
