Our new year's eve

Our new year's eve tradition is to go to our favorite Korean restaurant for dinner.  We always get there super early and are usually one of the only families there.  We all look forward to this night all year long.  So you can imagine our shock and disappointment when we pull up to the restaurant only to discover that they are closed for the holidays!!!  I had to pick my jaw up from off the floor, just as Sam started crying in the back seat because he was hungry and Poppy started whimpering about how badly she wanted rice.  We thought fast and headed over to the only other Korean restaurant in WNY, which is more of really casual, almost to-go place that we've never been to.  

Unfortunately, the food was really disappointing, well at least for me and Marc it was.  Poppy and Sam absolutely loved it (because it involved rice and noodles!)...

And I got scolded for dressing Sam in red.  Apparently only girls should be dressed in red!  Have I ever mentioned how often Sam gets called a girl?  Almost every single day!  Poor kid.  At least his sister can relate (everyone thought she was a boy up until she was about 3 years old).

More important than the food was the fact that we were celebrating the new year together.  2011 was a great year for us and I'm hoping 2012 is even better!  Today was spent booking our family spring vacation to Florida which reminds me of how much we have to look forward to this year!

Happy New Year!!! I love your tradition! Our LKR (Local Korean Restaurant) is also closed, but I would totally hijack this idea if I could...

What a bummer:( Now you will have to start a new tradition. Maybe you should have a ball drop at 8:00 party:)

Our kids def have that in common. Everyone always said "she is so beautiful" until recent. Thankfully its passed now.
Bummer on the restaurant. I agree with Poppy, noodles and rice. Doesn't get any better!
