New Years Eve 2013!

This year we volunteered to host.  We were having a group of 14 adults and all of their kids (plus a few extras) over for the evening.  The adults had a 7:00 dinner reservation at Union on Yale in Claremont.  We'd planned to bring in Vince's Spaghetti for the kids.  But when I arrived at 5PM to pickup our food I saw a sign on the door letting me know they were closed for New Year's Eve/Day.  Hmm this wasn't good.  Bill was working out, so I was on my own to come up with a solution by 6:00 when everyone would be arriving.  I opted for San Biagio and called in an order of pasta, bread and pizzas.  They got it all done and I got home by about 5:45, success!

This was the second year we'd gone to Union on Yale and it was great again.  The service wasn't quite as good this year, but the food was delicious.  After that the night was a blur.  We headed home, the kids opened their white elephant gifts and we played a game called Cards for Humanity.  It was pretty funny, although quite inappropriate.

It was a great night!  Although I think the recovery for Bill and I took a little long.  I think we enjoyed the evening at home a little too much.  But it was a great way to ring in the New Year!!
