After the busy fun with family for Christmas, we decided the last minute to invite neighbors and friends to celebrate New Year’s Eve with us.  My parents ended up getting stranded in Denver with a cancelled flight, so they were staying with us. I cooked up some yummy lasagna, and friends brought appetizers and drinks.  We had about 15 people and 2 kids. It was fun to hang out, relax and play games.  We made it till midnight then started cleaning up as everyone left.

New Year’s Day we woke and with one other overnight guest made french toast for everyone.  My parents got a ride to the airport, and we headed out to pick up a friend to go snow shoeing. We headed up to Rocky Mountain National Park and did a 3.6 mile hike up and across 3 lakes.  It was fun to be out with others on the trails in the snow.  We ended the day with seeing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It is a fun, clean and entertaining movie.
