Happy New Year!

January 1, 2012

I spent the first part of New Year’s Eve at my parents for some yummy snacks.  Mexican layered dip, mozzarella sticks, a little brie, and sushi!  Plus more carrots and potato chips that went unphotographed.


Then I met up with Tim when he got off of work and we headed to Allentown’s bell drop.


We figured as Allentown residents we should go take part since this was the first time they had a New Year’s celebration.  They had a stage with a band playing, an ice sculptor, and fire dancers leading up to the bell drop!  We were only there during the hour before midnight so I’m not sure what was going on earlier.  The nearby restaurants looked busy and it was nice seeing all the families, politicians, and residents out celebrating.

We’ve decided this is Tim’s “running for city council” photo.




At midnight they lowered the bell (they could have used someone to do an official countdown!).


Happy New Year!

We headed out as the fireworks were ending and went over to one of Tim’s coworker’s parties.  We were there until around 2:00 which is pretty much a miracle for us!  Happy 2012 all!
