New Year celebrations sure have changed since having Cole. I can't really say that I mind all that much. I never really got into the hype of NYE. This year we decided to celebrate 2013 Ireland time! Callanan's Bar and Grill had a live Irish band and they rang in the new year at 6pm...midnight in Ireland. That worked out perfectly for Jen's family and Jim and I. The kids loved wearing the fancy hats and blowing the horns, the chicken tenders were a hit with Cole, and Jim and I were able to have a few beers and socialize. We were home by 8pm and Jim and I watched the ball drop from the comforts of our recliners.
I apologize for the awful iPhone pictures- they're blurry, but capture the memory.
