Taking a stroll down memory lane, remembering my very best, most exciting NYE ever in 2007, although it doesn't seem that long ago.

Steve and I had been married just two months previously in Santorini Greece and we returned to Europe for my birthday and the holidays.
New Years Eve found us on a riverboat on the Danube in Linz Austria. That afernoon we were wandering through that lovely town and noticed the streets were full of vendors selling fireworks. I'm talking serious sky rocket fireworks like I've never seen for sale in the USA, and all the locals were buying them. We returned to the ship for a lovely dinner with the other passengers, and then bundled up for the cold to go up on the sun deck with our Champagne. Around 11 pm the spontaneous show began from the people of Linz on each side of the Danube river. It was the most spectacular fireworks show I've ever seen in my life. A light snow was falling, and the colors of the hundreds of fireworks over the water for more than an hour, was something to behold. Standing there with our Champagne, I felt like I was in a fantasy movie.

We'll remember that magical night tonight, and all of our NYE's.

Happy new year everyone!

I don't watch the Crystal Ball. Not even First Night in Boston. And I certainly don't go out. Too many crazies out there tonight. I am going to try to do some sewing.

The Tamales I ordered from Texas came this morning, so we had some of those for our dinner. Now we are just biding our time until it's time to fall asleep...err, ring in the New Year!

How were those tamale's PF? We went for Sushi when our favorite place opened at 5pm and it was filled up by 5:20. There were about 30 people waiting to get in when we left so we're glad to be home safe and sound now.

They were fantastic! Shrek wants some for breakfast, too. I'm glad I got two dozen and they are definitely worth the price. Before I ordered them I asked Shrek how much he would be willing to pay for handmade tamales, he quoted me $2,50 a piece. Since these were cheaper, he agreed we should try them. I ordered them Christmas Day and they got here this morning, I used the cheapest shipping method.

We definitely want to try their other fillings, we just got the pork this time. So much easier than making them myself.
