It's funny but so many of our cherished traditions revolve around food. Every New Year's Day or New Year's Eve, whichever works best for us, we have a "Make Your Own Subs & Make Your Own Sundaes" party. Yep, more food. But it's so easy to prepare and so much fun for the kids. And it's so easy to have families share in our tradition.
This year we had to postpone the madness because of the snow. We had some families coming over that we didn't even know well, but the snow did us in. It was just too much snow and too much wind to risk it, so we decided to celebrate on Sunday afternoon. It was a smashing success. It was an simple meal to pull off and it was a great way to get to know some people better. We also introduced these families to a new game - Pit. Another guaranteed way to know people better... as you're yelling at them across the table. Fun, fun, fun. Unfortunately, I didn't take a single picture, but I have the memories.
