We let the girls stay up past midnight this new year . They always tell us they don't want to go to bed when we tell them that it's bedtime, so you can imagine their excitement when we told them they could go to sleep when mommy and daddy also went to sleep. They were hyper and energetic throughout the night(we had many sporadic dance parties in between, and went to Nickel City where Jay won Plinko 8 times!), but as soon as 10:30 p.m hit, they just plopped on the couch and wanted to watch t.v. They didn't move or utter a sound for the next 1.5 hours until we counted down with Carson Daly and drank sparkling cider. As soon as we gave each other kisses, we brushed our teeth, prayed, and went to bed.
On new year's day, we had my parents over and had ddukguk, a korean rice cake soup that's eaten in Korea on new year's day. The soup is made with pure beef broth, oval shaped rice cakes, thin slices of beef that's topped with eggs, sea weed & green onions. It's one of my favorite Korean foods, and it turned out delicious!
2012 has been filled with much blessing, love, luck, and happiness, and I'm so excited to see what's in store for us in 2013! We wish you a happy new year that's filled with lots of happiness and health. Here's to a great 2013!
