the countdown starts

New Year's Eve and we're just about to have dinner and start our celebrations. Let's see if we have everything we need.

Tons of snow? Check!

Fondue pot? Check! (I will spare you pictures of raw meat)

Fresh oysters (for Mr. M, not for me!) and non-alchoholic "champagne"? Check!

Dessert with 5,000 calories per serving? Check!

Enough fireworks for the whole neighbourhood? Check! (Never fear - my three sanitation engineers will be cleaning up every scrap off the lawn tomorrow morning.)

Marzipan piggies and lady bugs? Check!

Yep, looks like we're all set.

But before I go I'd like to wish everyone health and happiness in 2010!

See you on the flip side!

January 1, 2010 - 1:00 a.m.

Happy New Year!

Enough partying for me. I've got a touch of bronchitis so I'm going to bed now and leaving the rest of the fireworks to the experts.

Everything was set for the new year and it looks great! So sorry that you are sick, what a way to start the new year. It is like that over here too. I like the photo with the curry sauce (which I miss) and the marzipans!!!
To you and your family a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and the family, Christina! Hope you feel better soon!

BTW, you at least have a lot of pretty snow. All we had here the past few days was pouring rain! Sooo depressing :(

Happy New Year to you and your family. We made fondue here too, but I am guessing it was a bit warmer here ;)

what a fun new year's celebration! the piggies and ladybugs are there a symbolic meaning behind pigs and ladybugs for new year?

I'd be happy with just the snow and the dessert. Oh and perhaps the piggies too ;-)

Happy new year!

Happy new year Christina & Family! I'd love to get some Marzipan pigs or Neujahrsbretzel, but can't find nothing like that here!

Happy New Year, Christina! Hope you're feeling better.

I am all excited because now that I have broadband I can go back and look at all your beautiful pictures. Now I'm hungry.

Your food always looks so delicious. I was also wondering about the piggies. German tradition?
