we celebrated new year's eve with my parents at our house. in the afternoon, we had fun cooking dinner with my mom. we made lebanese-themed appetizers for dinner including: hummus and baba ghanoush with pita bread, tabbouleh salad, and mini falafel patties with tzatziki sauce. it was all so good!
it's a tradition of ours to see a movie on new year's eve, so after dinner we curled up on the couch and watched new year's eve while eating leftover christmas cookies. later in the evening, we watched the times square ball drop on tv. it was a great way to spend new year's eve!
on new year's day, we went down to my parents' house for our traditional pork and sauerkraut dinner. we spent time with our family and i opened a couple of early birthday presents from ryan's parents too. we really enjoyed ringing in the new year with our family. here's to a happy and a healthy new year!
